Default OK,why peeled shrimp over shrimp in the shell?

Most guys say they use peeled shrimp as bait.
I do to.
But why?
Seems like the shell would stay hooked up better and last time I looked, live shrimp were in a shell?

I do the same. Most of the reasons I've come across are that it gives off more active scent and of course the occasional, "pomp have sensitive bites/lips." I simply do it because it was how Iwas taught and it has become serious habit.

An ole timer schooled me on using shrimp years ago. He would use the smallest head on shrimp he could find. He would leave a little meat just behind the head and pinch the rest off. He would fill up coolers back when there was no limit.

Amino acids or something scientific of the sort. It works. I'll forever do it and forever tell people that's the way it should be. Seems to separate those who know how and those who don't at least.

Do you like to eat shrimp shells?

Neither do I, neither do them.

Here's an official answer from T A&M. If you use unpeeled shrimp for bait, you will sometimes find that when you retieve your line, it possibly may only contain an empty shrimp shell. If you bait the hook with peeled shrimp...you'll never retrieve an empty shrimp shell. How's that?

OK,this morning I tried some unpeeled pieces of shrimp with a 1/2” piece of fish bites .
3 Pompano in an hour.
Maybe it was the fishbites but 1 rod just baited with bites struck out.
Go figure......

As fast as pomps move I kinda doubt they would pass on a stinky piece of shimp becuse It wasn’t peeled.
Maybe in clear water or off a pier but today was 5 oz sinker day for me.
