Gulp vs. Gulp Alive?

6 posts in this topic

I'm going to be up fishing out of Morson over the 4th and was going to bring up some Gulp minnows to fish with. Have you seen any difference between those big tubs of Gulp Alive baits vs. the standard Gulp minnows you buy in the bags? I was going to bring up some 2-1/2" or 3" minnows but thought it would be much easier to pack the bags vs. the tub.

Also is it better to use these to "tip" a jig with, or thread them on the a bare head and make it the jig.

Thanks! Tim

I have used the ones in the bag in place of a fathead on a jighead. Worked well for the river walleyes last fall

We use Gulp minnows in place of live minnows. We use the 4" Shad black/silver and the chartruese. We put the hook through the mouth and out the head. Doesn't matter on the tub or pack - whatever is easier.

I would go with the bags. I was up in ontario last week and I had the gulp alive tub. If it ever went on its side it would leak all over. If you go with the tubs find a better way to store it... Another guy I was with used just plain gulp and it worked just as good. If you go with the plain gulp you can try it in dif colors. The black and white ones worked well sometimes and other time the chart. would produce more fish.

Berkley had a problem with the original packing and it did leak after you broke the seal. I transfered mine to a regular canning jar with a sealed lid and it was just fine. I believe they have fixed the problem.

Thanks for the replys! I bought some bags and will bring those. They have a new watermelon pearl color that looks pretty deadly. I got some of those and the black and white smelt ones.

    • Hey you guys-you forget I'm an old Alaskan.  I know all I need to know about the dingbat and her famous family. If you are actually accepting her blather as useful intelligence and knowledge than you are as squirrely as she is. Let her just fade away for Pete's sake.
    • Hi Dave.  We have talked about this briefly a year or two ago.  Due to the paranoia factor on this site I and most others aren't here as much.  I do miss guys like you Dave.  I remember the pic of your camper at Itasca so we took a drive through this summer.   I wondered where your spot was.  Man I hope you come out of this alright Dave.  My Uncle had diabetes bad and finally lost the battle.  The docs said change your diet or take the shot.  He said give me the shots.  Well that lasted for many years and his body finally gave in..  He should have changed his diet too.  I took him to a couple of bear baits he wanted to see and he told me his feet were finally giving in.  AND he was a tough guy.   Anyway Dave we all love you and I hope you can persevere....   I am thinking good things for you so you think positive too.....    Barry.    Hope this isn't deleted for one of their paranoid reasons...  If it is deleted I will never be back as many others.   So sad.....
    • It is interesting how people got out so early.  I have done it too.  3 or 4 hits with the spud and it is alright.......  NO it isn't ....  It is manly to talk about getting on the ice first.  Well now that I am older I realize it is stupid talk not manly.  The fishing sales world is just as guilty.  They talk about the first ice fishing being so good.  They actually are hugely responsible for getting stupid people out on thin ice.  The lets make a buck is more important than anything.  ANYTHING!!! 
    • Great pictures.   I'm used to seeing eagles, but those pictures are outstanding. 
    • Didn't I just do that?   Can't you read? 
    • Only if they have a drinking problem and maybe me implants.  That's all the Canadian folks care about....
    • That sounds like a great idea. 
    • I know perfectly well how phishing works.   Typical Liberal thinks anyone who is not toeing the party line is ignorant.    It isn't that hard to phish a fool like podesta.
    • I feel like we were just water skiing not to long ago!  Definitely caught a sun burn for deer season ha.  I'll be doing my fishing at the grocery store for a bit yet.
    • Remember, your fishing for pickerel!!  No such thing as walleye where your fishing
