Default Sailfish on a Berkley Gulp

I was watching a satellite TV show the other day out of South Africa with these guys deep jigging for various species. Whilst one of them was fighting a fish they noticed birds and frothing water about half a mile away. The guy got his fish on board and they zoomed over. Using the same spinning reels, rods and jigs they cast into the baitball and one of them came tight. The fish takes off and he's way over matched. After about a 10 second run a Sail starts jumping. These guys are pros and they went absolutely crazy. I couldn't figure out what the excitement was all about until they landed the fish and took the lure out. Yep, a Chartreuse Berkley Gulp.

Just shows that when they want to bite, fish will hit anything you put in front of them.

Here's a link to the website. I couldn't find the episode on there but if anyone does please post the link:

FYI.... My customers have caught everything that swims in or around the 'Glades on Gulp products. Everything from Tarpon on down, at least 15 species. We're only using their 3" shrimp tails and the 4" mullet tails on small jigheads...

I'm not on Berkley's guide program, but I'd like to be.... Gulp products are one of the very few items that actually work better than the manufacturer claims. Check out the fishing report that I posted yesterday. All of the fish on artificials were on Gulps...

At last count, I've caught 208 species on GULP! (Up to 200# or so) If I had the bucks to do more specialized fishing and do it in other areas, I am sure I could add a couple of hundred more. Man would I like to have the opportunity! So far, I've only used GULP! in Panama, Bahamas, all over Florida and the south eastern US.

I view GULP! more as bait than as an artificial. Without GULP's scent, almost any soft plastic will out perform it.

My favorite way to fish GULP! is to use the GULP! strip baits inside the skirt of hair jigs and flies. Skirts keep nippers from tearing the GULP up with the first bite. Using the strips on hair jigs and flies will give you far more bang for your GULP! buck.

BTW, I know of several Swordfish caught on GULP! and I've caught at least 5 species of Tuna.

Same deal in the Northeast,
Ive caught weakfish, stripers, blues, lots of fluke, and blackfish on Gulp.

It has also to be said that they biodegrade vs plastics which stick around for decades at least.

I found something else that will eat Gulp. Went into the cuddy of by boat today an found some type of critter (likely mice) had gotten in. The went after three bags of Gulp and left everything else alone...
