Default Berkley Gulp Question

Any inshore fishermen tried the new Berkley Gulp!? If so, was your experience good or bad? The place where I stop to buy bait got some in and before I pay that price for a grub tail I want to know if they work. Any experience?

The grub tail on a bucktail is great for fluke, even caught a striper with that combo. Ihave heard that the penny colored shrimp work well also, just haven't tried them.

Gulps are great ! Starting to read reports of the Bigger Gulps catching Grouper & Kings.
Can someone help me with posting a Picture?

They work and they're tough. You don't get many in a pack but you can catch lots of fish on one piece before it is worn out. Don't store a used one back in the package with new ones, and don't leave it on the rod, store it in a damp rag or sealed bag with a few drops of water.

and don't leave it on the rod
You'll only do it once if you do. They shrink up into little piece of shoe leather and are a be-atch to get off a jig head when they dry. I do throw them back in the bag and re-soak them in that stink juice.

Around here the shrimp caught a lot of flounder last summer. Now some fishermen are using the bloodworms for stripers with good results. I got one the other day on a Gulp crab. I tried it because the stripers I was getting had quarter size crabs in their stomachs.

Many a redfish and trout is being caught here on the gulf coast of FL with Gulp shrimp, crabs and jerk baits.
Like was mentioned before, do not store 'em on a jig head!

I use them for Stripers.... I put them on a Bucktail. Make sure you take them off your hook after your finished fishing because they will dry up and be hard to remove.
