Gulp Alive! Liquid

13 posts in this topic

Does anyone know if the stuff in the tubs is the same as the stuff in the spray bottles. I would like to just get a spray bottle and put all of my bags into one jar, but I don't want to accidentally ruin 5-6 new bags of Gulp.

I am not sure if it is the same stuff, but am guessing it would not ruin your Gulp!s if you stored them in it. But, again, I am just guessing. Contact Berkley, they should be able to give you the official ruling.

I just looked at that Gulp Alive today. $20 for a tub. Seems kind of spendy. I will still probably try it though.

Hopefully they have improved the lids on the tubs, last year I bought 2 tubs and if they were not perfectely level the liquid would leak out of the top.

The $20 or $40 per tub does seem high, but I think they say the tubs are the equivalent of 3 or 6 bags of Gulp. I've never counted though, even though I have a few tubs (and many bag) or gulp products. And I agree with jeepguy, try to keep those tubs sealed and level or you'll have a mess.

Price comes out to be real close to buying the equivalent amount of bags. Stick with the bags until you know if you are going to go use it that much. I do believe they changed the lids. I have a bucket from two years ago and one from last year and no problem with the newer one.

I bought one of the tubs last year and it leaked all over the place, so I started buying more bags. I was thinking of getting something with a more reliable seal and just put all of my bags into it and add more of the liquid. I just couldn't find anything with a wide enough lid and a reliable enough seal, though I didn't really look all that hard.

The tubs fit perfectly inside those plastic Folgers coffee tubs. Can be a pain taking it in and out, but at least the mess is contained.

No problem, Fishdale. That's one of the reasons I love these boards. Someone has probably experienced the problem I am having and has found a simple solution. We are all helping each other out.

Buy two tubs now and you can get a Gulp! bag to store them in, or do what I did and get some rubbermaid containers with a screw on top to store them in.

I am going to use Lock n Lock plastic containers to store my Gulp leeches. They are a snap lid with flanges and a silicone seal,and guaranteed not to leak and lifetime warranty. They come in all different sizes and shapes, round cylinder, squares and rectangles. They are food safe and float. I use them all the time in my kitchen for food storage. Walmart, Target, internet. They are g..ood!

    • Youtube is the way to go. So many cool little self filmed fishing shows on there. Heck I have a channel myself where I record my fishing trips. Uncut angling is cool, I also like Peelindrag because he is out of Michigan like me. Screw those commercial filled, cheesy scripted fishing shows on tv. Times have changed in my opinion.
    • Krylon and Rustoleum both have aerosol primers for plastic.  
    • I had the fasteners they recommended but it still needs to be filled to prevent floating . I don't recall what spacing I used but was told later I did every thing correct except for the water .
    • I bought my first house almost exactly a year ago and am looking to put it in a garden which is kind of a new adventure for me. Since I don't have the best soil in my yard, I am thinking I am going to build some raised garden beds out of some 2x12s. I am looking for some suggestions on this. Is 12" of soil deep enough? Any do's or don'ts from people that have done this before?   I've never done a solo garden before, so I am kind of in uncharted territories. I want to make some salsa and possibly pasta sauce so what all should I grow? Tomatoes and peppers are on the list... what else?   I'm located in Duluth so temp/thaw wise, we are at least a week or 2 behind the metro still.

    • I think he just got triple owned, I just scored a ton of points in my imaginary troll game. YES!!!!  
    • I am making some bluebird houses out of PVC.  They need to be white.  I have painted some with Zinser primer but it doesn't adhere very well.  Any idea what I should do to get the paint to stick?   Thanks for your time.   Tom
    • I don't think Trump can do that much damage in 4 years, if he makes it that long.
    • Phony politicians of all stripes have reversed their position on the fence numerous times, since it is just a political football that is typically dropped once the election is over.     One of the obstacles is land ownership, and we are supposedly a nation of laws that stands for the right to own property.     In 2007, as the Bush administration was extending the fence, it sent letters to property owners threatening to sue them if they did not “voluntarily” hand over their rights to their land. The letters offered no compensation for the use of the land. Some intimidated property owners signed the letters thinking that they had no recourse. Others refused, and the governmentsued them for access. Although the government can—and did—attempt to use eminent domain to seize property from landowners, the lawsuits took years to complete (7 years in one case), causing substantial delays. DHS’s Inspector General (IG) concluded in 2009 that “acquiring non-federal property has delayed the completion of fence construction,” and that “CBP achieved [its] progress primarily in areas where environmental and real estate issues did not cause significant delay.” The IG report again: For example one landowner in New Mexico refused to allow CBP to acquire his land for the fence. The land ownership predated the Roosevelt easement that provides the federal government with a 60-foot border right-of-way. As a result, construction of fencing was delayed and a 1.2-mile gap in the fence existed for a time in this area. CBP later acquired this land through a negotiated settlement. The IG found more than 480 cases in which the federal government negotiated the “voluntary” sale of property, and up to 300 cases in which condemnation would be sought through the courts. Because the right of just compensation is protected by the Constitution, there is little Donald Trump or Congress can do to expedite these issues. A related issue is the impact on tribal lands. Although technically owned by the federal government, tribal lands are held in trust for Indian tribes, which federal law recognizes as distinct, independent, political entities. The Tohono O’odham Nation, which has land on both sides of the border, hasalready pledged to fight the Trump administration on building a wall there. In 2007, the tribe agreed to allow the construction of a vehicle barrier on their land, but the Bush administration then waived laws that protect tribal burial grounds, and during construction, human remains were dug up. If the tribe refuses to cooperate, the Trump administration would need a stand-alone bill from Congress condemning the land. Even on federal lands, it can take months to get various agencies to agree to allow Border Patrol to move forward on various projects. In 2010, two-thirds of patrol agents-in-charge told the Government Accountability Office that under land management laws, the interagency compliance process had delayed or limited access to portions of some federal lands. Some 54 percent said that they were unable to obtain responses to requests for permission to use the lands in a timely manner. In one case, it took nearly 8 months for Border Patrol to get permission to install a single underground sensor. Only 15 percent, however, said that these issues adversely impacted the overall security in their areas.
