Berkley Gulp

10 posts in this topic

Has anyone tried the new Gulp for crappies? they look like minnows & come in a tub. They look like they should work, and should last longer than live minnows

I saw that, they're 20 bucks for "a pint" and they are in their own juice. Very interesting. Didn't buy any though, I have oodles of powerbait anyways. Gulp is more expensive than powerbait and I catch plenty of fish on the orignal formula

The 2.5" minnows are very nice. The pearl is my favorite color. However, like mentioned, the Powerbait minnows are very nice too and I probably use those more than I do the Gulp...

I heard that you can even dip the powerbait in the Gulp! Alive bucket and produce good results. Haven't tried it though.

Actually you can put anything that is plastic in that liquid... it just keeps the plastic nicely coated, thats all... i would suggest for those who aready bought one to put all there plastic in there or put it together in a ziplock bag... you'll always have fresh lively plastic to use... =D

I posted a similar topic titled Gulp Alive. Was wondering if plastics could go in the "juice." Sounds like the only certainty is the gulp products can be placed in the juice. Whether it is Gulp Alive or the bagged gulp progucts. Other plastics will taint the juice and creating a bloody mess.

The powerbait minnows, I haven't seen them yet. Going to Bass Pro and get some gulp and check out the powerbait. The crappie are on the banks, should be good, don't want to buy minnows anymore

    •   I would definitely get the one with the Pheasant plowing attachment! Beats walking the fields!
    • Never getting rid of my Suburban. Just looking for a new toy for hunting etc. that I can drive down narrow dirt roads up north. Another reason why I would rather buy a slightly used one so I can use it without worrying about putting a few scratches on it. Those side by sides look like fun but you have to haul them around and cant drive them everywhere. And they just aren't built to take what a Jeep can. Always kind of liked the looks of Jeeps and being able to remove the top in the summer is nice to. Would definitely want a hard top to as the soft tops aren't to good for MN winters. I'm sure the newer ones have better heaters than the older ones as I remember back in the day guys were dressed like they were snowmobiling while driving their Jeep. And scraping frost off of the window to see.
    • I went through the same thing. I had ATV's at first then bought an RZR. It was fun but honestly the quality for the price is pretty bad. You can go up to a Can Am but then the price is even worse. So a few years after I sold the RZR I got the itch again but then started looking at the Wranglers and ended up doing that. I bought a 2006 with the 4.0 and after that and buying a used 6.6' plow I was into it for less than 13.5k and can drive it everywhere.   I have the hardtop on mine. I just take it off in the summer and drive it when it's nice. IMHO it's the way to go but you need to watch out for ones that are rusted out. I take the doors off, the top off and drive around sniping gophers, head to the lake or just cruise around. I like the 32" BFG KO tires.     
    •   What's a big guy like you going to do with a little SUV?  Your still keeping the truck to pull that new trailer right?
    • Good luck, have fun and stay topside this time of year.
    • Did you have to sand in between coats of lacquer? I was going to use a pre catalyzed lacquer for a little more durability, but it seems like it would take forever to get in all of the grooves. 
    • Some of the older ones had a 4 cylinder. Think the new ones only have a 6 now.
    • White pine needs bud caps to survive.     DNR had this publication you might find interesting managing_woodland_deer.pdf   Here is another link.... from extension   http://www.myminnesotawoods.umn.edu/2007/04/minnesota-woodlands-and-wildlife-strategies-and-species/   Balsam fir and spruce are good if we ever have another bad winter....
