Gulp Alive Waxies vs std Gulp waxies

4 posts in this topic

Other then the price difference and the liquid in the jar of the Alive version, what is the difference between the Gulp Alive Waxies vs std Gulp waxies? Is this just a marketing thing?

I think the Gulp Alive is a different formula. I have both, use both, don't really pay attention to which one I'm using, and don't really notice a difference. One of my older jars of gulp was drying out a bit so I splashed in a little of the gulp alive juice and it seems to be moistening them up nicely.

I don't use Gulp waxies very often when ice fishing - I usually start with plain plastic, then tip with real waxxies or eurolarvae if needed. And on my jigging spoons I like using a minnow head.

But for open water panfish in the spring I use Gulp waxies a lot, tipping tube jigs with them (or fishing the tube jigs untipped). I can tell you exactly how many crappie minnows I've used in 8 or 9 trips this spring --- 3 ---- which was enough to reaffirm that I prefer Gulp or plain plastics for panfish.

Plus it's so convenient to keep a couple jars in the boat, ready to go whenever needed. No running into the baitshop to get minnows, keeping them alive, dumping them out at the end of the day, etc.

    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
    • Because you are banking on not having to pay it back in your lifetime and are perfectly fine with passing that debt down to future generations which allows you to live a better lifestyle at their expense.  Some of us don't think it'e ethical to pass debt onto generations who will have no say in the process.
