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.
