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 @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
