dipping other baits in Gulp Alive

8 posts in this topic

I bought a tub yesterday and I see a warning on the back not to dip non gulp baits into the liquid. If I dip mr twisters into the tub is there going to be a toxic reaction? Has anyone tried soaking traditional plastics and what where the results? I don't want to ruin a $20 tub, but I would also like to get as much use out of that liquid as possible.

thanks

Two months ago I purchased a spray bottle of Gulp Alive. I poured it into the plastic contain I keep baits in during a tournament and added some plastics. The plastics I added are the Christopherson's Bait plastics ( bass guys will know what I'm referring to) I've been doing this for years with other scents like Fish Formula and such. So far the Gulp has not reacted negatively to the container or plastics. So I will use this set-up this year.

I agree with wayne otherwise just take alittle out of the tub and pour it into a smaller tub and dip it in that!

Sorry to Hi-jack, but...

Wayne, How do you like the Christopherson's baits? I have been looking at picking up a couple big bags of soft plastic sticks as I burn through them in the summer. Are they most comparable to the Senko, Comida, or Dinger in terms of feel and weight? Are they pretty durable?

As for dipping others in the juice, it is not recommended by the Pure Fishing guys. But why do they make rules if they aren't supposed to be broken?

I think its alittle promotional too becuase it is such a gerat scent they dont want you to put it on other lures that aren't from pure fishing because it will make those lures better! I think that plays alittle into it too.

I've taken the 6" crawlers and add them to Gulp Alive leech container. In fact, any gulp I've used in the past I have taken out of the bags and put in the same container as the

Alive, have had good luck so far with the crawlers on spinners.

Polar...

It's the Christopherson plastic baits that I soak in Gulp Alive or Fish Formula. Seems to work. The plastics from Dana have good weight put not the flexability of Comida's.

    • Good season Wild, onto next year. Should be some changes but I don't expect us to do anything crazy. Need to sign Granlund and Nino and that will use up a lot of our cap space. Can't afford Hanzel and possibly Haula and Vegas will be taking a player off our hands. I'm more interested to see who can sustain or step up their scoring next year or if anyone regresses. Granlund, Coyle, Nino, Zucker, Dumba, Spurgeon and Brodin all had career years, those are good problems to have. They showed us a lot but I think they still have room to grow and that is what we need. We have a nice cast of vets but they are likely too old to lead us to a cup, they would be in more supporting rolls. Hopefully our now seasoned young core and continue to build on their impressive seasons. Always disappointing to lose, even worse when you can't score against your old coach but I like the our team and hopefully we can keep getting better.
    • I'm not the most techy 40yr old out there, so I will try to explain what I'm looking to do and hopefully someone can point me in the direction I need to go. I have a cabin in the Chippawa National Forrest, no phone at the cabin and our cell phones dont work at the cabin either. My teenage son wants to take the wheeler and go riding alone. I worry he's going to get lost or if the wheeler breaks down he can't call my cell for help. When we drive my truck around; the gps in it works all the time.  I know I can put a GPS app on my sons phone so he can track his route in reverse to get back to the cabin. But what if he breaks down?  Does anyone know if there is a gps app that I could "pair" up me and my son's phone so I can see where he is at? kill 2 birds with one stone per say, he can use it to navigate himself on the wheeler and I can see where he's at incase I need to rescue him.  Thanks for the help.
    • Hit the Red River over the weekend for the 2nd time this spring. First outing wasn't great with a handful of smaller cats all under 10lbs. This weekend was a different story as we ended up with 15 cats Friday night. 5 over 10lbs, 2 of which were high teens fish. All caught on cut river bait.  Cats were on the shallow side of the river. Water was high and flowing pretty good. All fish were caught and released. Great night of fishin w no bugs to bother us and very nice weather! Gonna give it another whirl soon in a boat this time. Have a look!!
    • I've never tried my booya poppin pad crashers Yet but are they really bad or just not as good? Just wondering.
    • Well, I got the bow out today and it took about a dozen shots to get it sighted in then I shot this group at 30 yards.    I am impressed with this CB. The trigger is really thing that I'm not impressed with but I have nothing to compare it to. It seems like there is 40 acres of creep before it releases.
    • Ya I don't know do I dare say I almost like it better than deer hunting... Cant sit with him tonight but came up with a game plan wouldn't be surprised if he sticks one tonight  
    • I am still hunting yet Moose. I go to Nebraska in a few weeks. I am archery in mn. starting to see more active birds. Going to wait and shoot a tom. Nice having 4 birds already on the team. How does a guy post pictures right from your cell phone to here so I can post Dillons info on his tom.
    • Went out today in the metro areas without any luck. Didn't even see any ramps in the usual spots, and I thought they were earlier than the morels.
