Default Gulp Baits???

I have seen a lot in magazines and on tv about these new baits.

I picked up a pack for this past weekend but ended up leaving them in the truck so did not get to use them

Do these work as advertised and are they as good as live bait??

tprice-have heard nothing but good things of them. I tried them this past winter for trout, reds, ect. Didn't catch anything, but nobody in the area did either. They do work VERY well though I am told. One very important thing, unlike soft plastics, the chemical/scent they impregnate in them turns to stone when left on a hook over a period of time. Be sure to take it off you hook or jighead and put it back in the pouch or trash. I had to cut off a Gulp shrimp with a knife whn I left it one for a few days!! Good luck

They are excellent baits. I usually use the GULP shrimp in new penny, and have caught reds, trout, and numerous other species including a small shark. They do dry out if left on the hook.

I use the chartuese 3" minnow for seabass in NJ, And they work great. They also have flat sheets that you can cut to look like squid strips. they work pretty good.

I rig a Gulp and then put my "real" bait on afterwards. They are a lot tougher than real baits and if you get the bait nibbled off, you still are fishing.

They worked for me. Do not leave them on your hook, after a week they are like cured 5200

dsteve is right, especially Fluking with those strips, may give you that last hit before or after your real bait is gonzo

I am outfishing my neighbor 2:1 using 3" Gulp grubs on spinner baits for large mouth bass. When the fish bite, they really hang on. My neighbor has been through a half-dozen different trailers trying to prove to me that the Gulp baits aren't making the difference. As soon as he gets over his stubborn streak, I'm confident that we'll both be Gulp customers.

The next time we go drift fishing around the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel, I'm going to pick up a package of Gulp crabs and see how they compare to the real thing.

Whatever you do, don't let them dry on your lures. I've never tried to cut cured 5200 with a pocket knife but I could barely get a blade through a dried Gulp grub, it was amazingly hard to cut off.

Last year I took some co-workers fishing with me one evening. When they got there I had already caught a crap load of minnows, little shad had everything all set up for them. So we get out there and they are using 1/4 oz red heads with 3" white gulp shrimp. I told them to save the gulps and use the live bait I had caught for us. They politely declined and proceeded to thoroughly kick my ass using those gulps. I mean they were catching 4 to my 1, and I was using live bait! Moral of the story, I now have several buckets and packets of gulp baits:D! Can't seem to locate my cast net anymore.....................................

Now this is an old thread!

What Lance said!!

Also yellow and menhaden three inch jigs. New penny or "natural" shrimp. Often add mud minnow. (Or live shrimp) Will catch flounder, reds, trout.

If you leave them on your jig, just cut line and toss entire apparatus. Getting gulp off not worth the effort.

If dried out, just throw them in a glass of water and they'll rehydrate (if you goal is to save hook or jig- I haven't fished one again after I re-softened it)

They seem expensive but they last much longer than real.

I had one dry out till it was less than a half-inch long and it rehydrated fine by putting it back in the Gulp bucket for awhile.
