Gulp for Sturgeon.

11 posts in this topic

Has anyone tried Berkeley Gulp for Sturgeon? Going to Rainey tomorrow with the thought on my mind that a large part of successful catching is that your bait is fresh and not washed out - I'm thinking that although not totally natural, Gulp may hold it's stink longer thus producing a longer lasting presentation? Plus, the suckers cant nibble it off!

save your money and buy regular plastics.. anyone who can give a good plastics presentation more than likely can fish just as well if not better with a Mister Twister than over priced gimmicky Gulp

I've got some Gulp and may try it out on the rainy this weekend. We also have a bunch of crawlers. It's worth a shot. The more scent you can get out for those fish the better.

Sturgeon don't eat based on "presentation", they suck up whatever smells good. Regular plastics won't smell good, but gulp might.

Was in the store today looking at the Gulp and wordering the same. We're headed up in a couple of weeks. I think I'll give it a try and if it doesn't work I use it later for other species.

I saw a show about two years ago where they were using a crawler and GULP crawler combo and doing well.

Worked good last year when we tried them. They didn't outfish worms or minnows but they held their own and are good to have in the boat when you run out of live bait. I found that continuouly redipping the gulp in the alive juice helped also cause the fish use smell not sight for food finding. I used the crawlers, 4" minnow(looped on a hook), and the alive shrimp. One nice thing is they don't get pulled off by small sturgeon, suckers or bullheads either.

I think the combination live and gulp would be best. The sturgeon as said go by smell and a little movement helps also.

The gulp will help with those sturgeon that are masters at stripping the hook on a light bite.

Didn't use it too much this weekend - Crawlers were still the bait of choice!

We just used crawlers for the most part, but I also sprayed on some YUM crawfish scent but I can't tell you if that definitely a must use item. Some other guys in our group used it also.

We make our own spray from leftovers of what we have left from the summer. I don't know if it makes a big difference on what scent it is but it gives us something to play with and experiment with.

    •   Well may be instead of buying a few over priced pizza's and eating them while you're sitting on the internet Beoshing about others doing something with their time and money you can get off your atheist ars and go help the folks with a few blanks! Freeking Hypocrite much!

    •   Dave- I'm as disillusioned as you with regards to our two main parties and I've been known to lurk around the edges of the Libertarian camp. What keeps me from coming all the way in is silly stuff like this.   You're as delusional as an altar boy that thinks the priest wants to be his "friend" if you believe churches are going to fix anything. They never have and they never will.    If churches help the poor, why are there so many poor people?   Here are a couple great examples of christians helping poor people- 1- A group from my community just got back from a mission trip to some central american rathole where 27 men that paid over $2000 apiece to go 1500 miles to build what were more or less 3 garages for some poor community. A little time for sightseeing and photo taking and they are back home with tons of pretty pictures proud of themselves for doing gods work. 2- The wife just bought 3 overpriced crappy pizzas from my niece to fund her New Orleans mission trip. A bunch of kids will raise several thousand dollars from suckers like me, take a nice trip somewhere I never went as a kid, see some sights and paint a couple houses.   Meanwhile, we live in a county where real, abject poverty actually exists. Students of mine go to bed hungry, don't have enough blankets in their house and live in homes one wouldn't leave their dog in.

    • You really don't need much insulation under the ground slab, I like to use pole barn ins.[bubble wrap] or 1 inch r board [heat rises],gyp crete works but it is patented and can only be installed by certified and licensed factory contractors. they mix it on sight, it cant be mixed by youre local ready mix provider,as the formula is property of gyp crete.
