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.

    •   Hopefully the trend towards "the other white meat" will bring down the cost of beef brisket
    •   No, weekends was when the wife could get you outside to do some yard work!
    •   They are now making a cloth made out of trees and it seems like the plant is doing just fine. I have not noticed the "smell" since the conversion. Always made me wonder why the smell was the worst on weekends. Kinda thought that maybe the EPA did not work weekends 
    • We are heading back up to Isle Royale for the 4th holiday weekend ,,, Hope to have another video when we get back 
    •   My Father-in-law (a master plumber) always used to say you only need to know 3 things to be a plumber:          sh*t doesn't run uphill         payday is on Friday         the boss is an ahole      
    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting.
