Bio-Bait vs. Gulp

6 posts in this topic

Bio-Bait or Gulp? Which have you used ? what do you like or dis-like about either product. I have picked up both and will be trying them this week and weekend. I will be posting my success and favorite on Monday.

What do you guys/gals think of the 'non-living' Live Baits?

I have tried the uncle josh "preserved" items in the past, and they are better than a bare hook, but not a replacement for live bait. Still looking for something that I can keep longer than a few days.

I'm having success with Bio Bait on quite a few species of fish this winter so far. Crappies, bluegills, bass, perch, and even some walleyes this past weekend. The Ice Bits are great for crappies and gills. I like the red larva flavor for tipping spoons for walleyes. And all the flavors I've dropped down the perch have liked. The shiner flavor is a good choice for all species as well.

Good Fishin,
Matt Johnson

I tried "Gulp!" (Yellow Maggots) for the very first time last weekend during a tourney. Fishing was slow but I did manage to try the Gulp! at the end of the day and caught a fish.

Wish I woulda tried it sooner, but the jury is still out for me on how effective it will be on a regular basis.

Gulp! won a lot of industry awards and got some serious press over the last few months, so I say give it a try.

I tried the gulp grubs on a 16th ounce jig and got some good bass on it, gotta be careful though, they will swallow it like real bait, so don't let them take it too long. I have not tried bio bait yet, but I suspect I will be soon!

I haven't tried Gulp yet.If its anything like or better than their Power Bait I think it might work well.It does seem that it only comes in one flavor?
Bio Bait catches fish.Unlike gulp it comes in several flavors.My favorite flavor so far is the crayfish.I have also done well using the crawler and meal worm shiner flavors.
I try to bring live bait with me every time out and keep a few flavors of Bio Bait with me all the time.When the fish are not interested in the live bait you have along its nice to be able to have something convienent along that has a different scent or flavor.Or if you run out of live bait or its inconveinent to get live bait then Bio Bait shines when the fish are looking for some thing with scent and flavor.

I used the gulp stuff this past summer and it worked really well for bass and panfish. Based on that I would bet that it might be a good thing for winter especially for crappies.

    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
    • What do you have against Japanese Beetles?   Diversity is good.   We need all nationalities of beetles.  Even VW beetles.   Asian Lady Beetles, everything.  All nationality and gender identity beetles. 
    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
