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.

    • should have set up in the grass! Uncle went back for evening set up at a pinch point hen and tom came through to go back to roost but no shot!
    • Beside the fun of fooling a turkey and sticking it witj my bow,this is why I love turkey hunting. Slow smoked with apple on the pellet smoker. 
    • Does anyone have a water driven backup sump pump? They look like the cats meow if you live in town. Or does code even allow them? If they are not allowed what is the best battery backup ones?
    • Got out Saturday morning. Perfect weather. Jakes and hens. Had a new group of 6 hens come in with no tom or jakes.   Did have a yote come out of nowhere right into my dekes. 12 yards. Just as I was drawing on it , it must have scented me and booked. A second yote crossed about 50 yards out. Sticking a yote is on my bucket list.   All in all a great morning.    
    • Good season Wild, onto next year. Should be some changes but I don't expect us to do anything crazy. Need to sign Granlund and Nino and that will use up a lot of our cap space. Can't afford Hanzel and possibly Haula and Vegas will be taking a player off our hands. I'm more interested to see who can sustain or step up their scoring next year or if anyone regresses. Granlund, Coyle, Nino, Zucker, Dumba, Spurgeon and Brodin all had career years, those are good problems to have. They showed us a lot but I think they still have room to grow and that is what we need. We have a nice cast of vets but they are likely too old to lead us to a cup, they would be in more supporting rolls. Hopefully our now seasoned young core and continue to build on their impressive seasons. Always disappointing to lose, even worse when you can't score against your old coach but I like the our team and hopefully we can keep getting better.
    • I'm not the most techy 40yr old out there, so I will try to explain what I'm looking to do and hopefully someone can point me in the direction I need to go. I have a cabin in the Chippawa National Forrest, no phone at the cabin and our cell phones dont work at the cabin either. My teenage son wants to take the wheeler and go riding alone. I worry he's going to get lost or if the wheeler breaks down he can't call my cell for help. When we drive my truck around; the gps in it works all the time.  I know I can put a GPS app on my sons phone so he can track his route in reverse to get back to the cabin. But what if he breaks down?  Does anyone know if there is a gps app that I could "pair" up me and my son's phone so I can see where he is at? kill 2 birds with one stone per say, he can use it to navigate himself on the wheeler and I can see where he's at incase I need to rescue him.  Thanks for the help.
    • Hit the Red River over the weekend for the 2nd time this spring. First outing wasn't great with a handful of smaller cats all under 10lbs. This weekend was a different story as we ended up with 15 cats Friday night. 5 over 10lbs, 2 of which were high teens fish. All caught on cut river bait.  Cats were on the shallow side of the river. Water was high and flowing pretty good. All fish were caught and released. Great night of fishin w no bugs to bother us and very nice weather! Gonna give it another whirl soon in a boat this time. Have a look!!
    • I've never tried my booya poppin pad crashers Yet but are they really bad or just not as good? Just wondering.
    • Well, I got the bow out today and it took about a dozen shots to get it sighted in then I shot this group at 30 yards.    I am impressed with this CB. The trigger is really thing that I'm not impressed with but I have nothing to compare it to. It seems like there is 40 acres of creep before it releases.
