      How to create an @mention - Click Here   07/16/2015

      You can use the @mention aspect whenever you want someone to be notified about a post or let them know you are talking about them. Type the @ symbol type in a couple "lowercase" letters pause then once the names pop-up either select or keep typing in letters to narrow down the list until you get the @mention name you are looking for. You can play a game so members can see how it works. If you want to practice or If your name has been @mentioned below you should see it in your notifications (upper right) and you then have to @mention one or two members who haven't been mentioned inthe comments section below. Let's see how long we can keep this going. Anyone who duplicates a name that has already been @mentioned loses. This is the first group to be @mentioned to get the ball rolling: @Borch @Scott K @Corey Bechtold @Matt Johnson @mrklean @eyeguy 54 @Finns @IceHawk @MarkB @Cliff Wagenbach @Wayne Ek

Gulp Alive

Recommended Posts

I typically use plastics for panfish, but am looking at possibly purchasing some Gulp Alive to add to my arsenal. I really like the looks of the pearl white minnows. My question is this...Does anyone "soak" their normal plastics in the alive juice? How long can you keep the stuff before it turns bad. I want to see how far I can stretch out the stuff before dropping the hammer on purchasing it. If I can double dip, that would be great. grin

Thanks,

CA

the Linders on the show stated that the gulp alive can sit in the boat all year so you will always have bait with.......now they redip the alive bait in the juice but I don't see why you wouldn't be able to dip other plastics in it also......I know I am going to try some soon..

It says on the side of the container not to dip other plastics in the "gravy". but you can re-dip the "alive" bait back in for a recharge. I tried some of the minnows, they worked alright as long as you keep the bait moving. I then took some of the gravy and dipped a different plastic in it and the red color of the plastive tube started to "bleed" off. So that didn't work to well. although I did dip a regular gulp grub in the gravy and that seemed to work alright.

I use the pearl Gulp minnow all the time with my jig combos. FYI, all Gulp products are not considered plastic and are biodegradable. They will shrink and become hard if you don't keep them in their packaging or in Alive juice. A regular gulp and gulp alive is the same thing. The alive meaning just means it comes with the gulp secret formula juice in a container. Plus it looks somewhat realistic in that little bucket of alive juice.

Regular plastic lures/baits can degrade or possibly change the alive formulation thats why Berkley says to keep it away from other plastics.

I bought some today and noticed the caution on the side of the package. So since all gulp is the same, I could actually buy many different combinations of gulp and throw them in the alive juice container? Would this be an option, or would I be de-funking the juice?

I am typically not a scent bandwagon jumper, however I am intrigued with this product for some reason. Since I have it now I am going to be doing some more experimenting with it.

Any more tips for using this stuff? Bare hooking it, tipping jigs? What methods do you prefer to fish with it?

I was at Joes Sproting Goods and asked a guy there. He had a Berkley rep there and asked him, and they said you can put all Gulp, bagged or Alive, in the juice and you can mix and match. I guess they will be coming out with a "sampler" collection of Gulp in the Alive jar later this summer.

So, based on that, I am mixing and matching as we speak smile

You gotta love a little science experiment... Hopefully you don't blow up the lab. grin Who knows what's in that mystery "gravy"

If the stuff screws up non-Gulp plastics maybe it will screw up a plastic container. I read something on FM about Gulp having a problem with their containers. I'm not sure that I would experiment with the wife's tupperware. Maybe an old glass jar is a better solution.

That secret juice will eat thru your hands if you leave it on too long. I hate reaching in the bucket because it gets on my fingers and then by the end of the day my fingers are all cut up and dry... thats juice is some crazy stuff.

    • We saw some good bucks this weekend but couldn't quite seal the deal on any of them...my son smoked his second one with the ML this afternoon after talking me in to going out when we should have been packing to leave for home...(: found a big deadhead this morning too...deer were super spooky but saw plenty...time to pack all the hunting gear away and focus on ice!! 
    • I know, you hear about them everyday in the News burning and terrorizing the good atheist folks of Belle Plaine MN.
    • Are the houses built on an order basis only?   How long did your build take from order to delivery?
    • The one I installed in my previous house was the same way. Like Tom said, be sure to watch the humidity levels. When they get too high you can start to get mold growth. I always watched the windows. When they'd start to get a lot of condensation on them I'd turn it down.   Be sure to check the filter at least once a year. I lived in town and still had to replace the filter every year because of buildup on the filter. When it would get clogged the water would pretty much run straight down to the drain in the bottom. 
    • Looks different to me, or probably just the light and shade difference.
    • I still planned to shoot my ML some, even not going hunting.  Pretty much out of primers and getting low on white hots so I swung into the Baxter FF on my way to Winnie for the weekend. They were completely out of primers and had just gotten restocked that day with propellants.  The counter guy said they went through a ton of ML supplies this year, owing the surge to scopes being allowed.  I bought some Buckhorn to try out and will have to get primers later. Anyone with a last day story to tell?
    • i think those jackknife couches are 72 inches but not positive, will check on that.  The back dinette bed would be almost 8 feet wide. Here are some more pics of the furnace, batteries, and hydraulic system under the couch.  Also the Biffy and closet in the front, the stereo system with Bluetooth, some USB charging ports next to it, cabinet for the satellite receiver with all connections tucked inside.  Pic of the outside 30 amp generator plug in and propane tanks.  Has lights over the tanks and entry door.  You can connect whatever you want to the tv, so yes a water camera would work on that.  Hoping to get on the ice next weekend!!  Good luck to all...
    • Meh, I can protect myself just fine with or without a $1000 rifle. My $100 Hi-Point .45 will make you just as dead as that AR. It's more than likely one of those crazy arse Christians that I need to protect myself from.
    • Yea, well down in Belle Plaine you got all those gun toting Christians to protect your ars!
