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.
