gulp alive waxies?

30 posts in this topic

Has anybody use the new gulp alive waxies? Are they any more productive than the real thing?

We use them alot for "gills" and crappies. One thing I really like about them is the fact that you can catch a number of fish on one maggot or waxie.

they stay on the hook a lot better and a believe you catch just as many fish with less baiting.

I agree with the two prior posts; they are just as effective and they stay on a long time. I've got 5 jars of the Gulp! waxies and maggots in different colors, so I should be good to go for the next ten years. Love the blood red!

I've also been on some lakes where the only way you'll catch a bigger bluegill is with the imitation!

Natural, Green/Chart, Pink and Red. Having them all is best. You never know what hte fish want.

I have yet to take a tub of "live" bait out with me on the water yet this year.

Red waxies are a favorite. Sometimes they want the t-bone cluster and other times it's just one threaded on a plain dropper hook.

Handy little bait. Reds, white, and green are popular here. I partioned them into my contact lens jars and stuck them in a few tackle bags. Almost impossible to rig up the wrong way and they catch fish after fish without falling off.

It sure doesn't hurt to have em with ya. I think they work just as good as the real thing, if not better sometimes!

This product is awesome on the pannies. The only color I have had any luck on is white. They don't make blood red in waxies just pink, chartreuse and white.

I've had good luck with them too, chart and red, but only when the gills are active. Sometimes the real deal is hard to beat. I've also had luck tipping a jigging spoon with one combined with a shiner head on a different treble hook; adds color and scent. I also dip the whole jigging spoon/shiner head/gulp rig into the gulp jar to get that nasty smell all over the jig. It sometimes has made the difference...

I make sure I always have a jar of em with me. Pink and white are my favorite colors. They work just as good if not better than real ones!

I haven't used the waxies, but the maggots have been magic for me all year. Best $6 I ever spent. It's like buying live bait fresh all the time, but you just keep it in your pocket and never have to think about it.

I jsut bought the Gulp alive waxies in natural (white) and was looking for red but they didnt have them in red. I did find red in the regular gulp line, in a smaller container. What is the difference between plain gulp, and gulp Alive??

Other than the price, I can't seem to find much difference in the two formulas.

I tried them up on Minnewaska and didnt catch a fish on them, but didnt catch many on real waxies either. the gulp alive jar seems to have alot more liquid than the regular gulp jar.

I have used live wax worms on occasion. I checked out the Gulp and they look good. I mostly just use small minnows.

What kind and size of hook or jig do you use for these small baits? Do you get good hook sets on the smaller jigs/hooks?

Thanks.

usually when the panfish are less aggressive i use smaller jigs, preferably a horizontal presentation with a sixe 12 or 14 jig with a heavy feel to it... if the fish are aggressive i'll usually go with even a jig size all the way up to a 6 for crappies, and for sunfish usually no bigger then a 10 size. or a tiny spoon with a size 12 or 14 trebble. good luck

    • I understand everything you say.  I'm just sorry you think anything you post is intelligent or has an original thought.  But hey if you have the need to feel important do I have a job for you.
    • I put those in there so that you COULD understand what I was saying and you confirmed it works. Sometimes we just have to try harder to communicate at a level you are comfortable with. 
    • Del, i do believe the chiropractic approach to healing an injury is significantly better then painkillers and muscle relaxers. Which may create the need to visit MD again to get something to loosen the stools from the pain meds. He's now billed for multiple office visits and services, you know, running a business. Stop being so naive.
    • I'm thinking the same thing.  
    • He is so outside that he only managed like 18 million in contributions in 24 hours from the biggest names in the political and financial elite but yet you think he is an outsider. Jets owner, Hollywood producer, Wall Street titans helped drive Trump’s $18M day http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2016/09/29/jets-owner-hollywood-producer-wall-street-titans-helped-drive-trump-s-18m-day.html Looks like a real outsider to me lol.
    • I would say 1x4 is over kill for furring strips aside from where bunks and cabinets are located and 1x1 is under sized for the studs.  Personally I would run 1x2 to have enough room for insulation.  Couple bucks extra up front. It saves you from hearing your furnace as often and spending as much down the road on propane.  
    • I use 1x4's as furring strips, which will give me another 3/4".  Then having it spray foamed. My last house I used rigid foam boards for insulation in the walls and ceiling.  I've never had anything spray foamed before, so if that's not enough let me know what you think.
