Gulp Alive?

7 posts in this topic

Anyone using the gulp alive minnows and leeches? I have heard a few good things about it but the stuff seems rather spendy. I suppose if the stuff last for weeks it would pay for itself rather than buying a dozen leeches everytime I go out, but if it's not comparable to the live bait then it wouldn't be worth it.

It does work well but over all in most situations your better off with live bait. I always have some in the boat though just in case I run out of leeches or crawlers.

I like the Gulp stuff when Im jigging faster water, dragging or perch are nibbling my crawlers off.

I use it a lot in Rivers like the St. Louis River, Rainy River when its cold. Spring and fall. No digging in the water for minnows/leeches means warmer hands and longer fishing. This usually means more fish.

It should last a long time. I had the juice run out of one of my containers and have read a lot here about leaks in the ones they come in. I don't know what to do about 'recharging' the package I have now. I think I'm going to salt them and put them on a pizza and claim their anchovies and see if anyone notices. Probably have to wait until adequate amounts of liquids have been consumed.

My opinion on Gulp Alive is a thumbs down. I fished it side by side with a buddy using live bait and the live bait far out performed the Gulp. The fish would hit the bait but wouldn't hang on. It was a lot like fishing plastics.

We had the opposite experience on LOW in June, the gulp outfished the real minnows about 3 to 1. In other times, I have had mixed results, but in that particular outing they sure liked the Gulp.

buddy of mine just got back from Ontario trip. Gulp did not perform even close to the frozen/salted minnows.

Ya its not a every day every application type bait but there are times where it is the ticket. Just 1 more tool in the big box.

    • Waterfront is now called dockside and they are open.  Not sure about tournaments, we don't participate in them because, not fans of what they can do to fish populations.  All these lakes in the area have far to many tournaments which contribute to hurtful results. 
    •  You are like Charles Oakley. Except without any of the the daunting physical attributes and replaced with the voice of Fran Drescher.   Your question is garbage and that's why it's unanswered.

    •   So conversely, decreasing the supply of labor increases the compensation for all the participants in that sector, and increases the cost of the products and services they deliver.

Does your God recognize these borders?   That's to bad. Dave's gone off the deep end and now arguing with himself!
    • I like to chop bacon into tiny pieces and add to the hamburger. But of course juicy lucy's are always good too....    
    • One of my better ones up at the lake last summer. Finely diced fresh garlic, finely diced fresh onion, hand full of shredded cheddar cheese, tea spoon Liq smoke, big spoon of Jalapeno mustered all mixed in meat. Put on a toasted onion bun with a slice of cheddar cheese and topped with sautéed morel mushrooms and bacon! At least the burger was 93% fat free!
    • Dumba possibly back tomorrow night. 2-3 more turnovers in our own zone to deal with.
    • Wow, those are over the top, guys!!!   I make all my burglars the same....splash of worcestershire, cracked pepper, bit of seasoned salt, minced onions, and a couple drops of hickory smoke all mixed in. Sometimes mix in some  coarse sharp shredded cheddar....
