Gulp Alive Minnows

Recommended Posts

The gulp minnows and fish fry work well for us on jumbo perch. We pound them on jigs and also use the gulp minnows on a dropshot rig.

Yes and we also use the larger sizes for lakers and the whities will bite them also . There are days when they work well some days not so just like any bait. Generally they produce .

I use them quite a bit for perch or crappies, have gotten a few walleyes on them along the way. Not saying they are the greatest bait in the world but they do have their time and place.

Spent quite a bit of time talking to Ted Takasaki at last years Sportman's show and one of the things he and I discussed was the successful use of artificial baits when targeting toothy critters. To make a very long story short he explained that Davey Jones isn't by any means guna hand them over easily but stated that at the right time, under the right conditions baits like the Gulp minnows can be deadly. He likes fishing them on slick jigs after removing the head so that the bait fits flush against the jig. Now of course I asked if he were using this technique on the smaller, harder hit metro lakes that don't seem to hold the fish populations of say a LOW or Mille Lacs. AND... he wouldn't tell me. LOL At any rate I think that a jar of Gulp live might not be a bad idea. In the event of some kind of mishap to your live minnows having those can at least keeps you fishing. I keep one for that reason alone. Between my dog and my son, my minnows just don't seem to last as long anymore. Hope this helps and good luck fishing out there.

eyeguy,

3" Gulp Alive Emerald Shiner on a Red Glow 3/16 Lindy Foo Flyer makes for a good presentation that catches active 'eyes. Tried and tested on Red Lake. Have not tried it on LOTW....yet. Headed that way mid Jan.

For crappies, I don't even buy live minnows anymore. The minnow heads are just plain awesome and all you need, and no more messing with freezing minnow buckets. I mix and match so all I have is one jar to bring, but it has three colors of minnow heads, a couple colors of fry, and a couple colors of maggots. Works great, but the smelt (?, the black and white) minnow heads work the best for me, the all red work the worst.

You don't have to re-bait that often either, unless sunnies are biting, then their little teeth cut them up more than crappies.

Good luck!

    • I have not purchases Forscan as I have access to an  OEM scan tool. There are somethings that the Forscan software can do that IDS cannot with Asbuilt. I have ways arround that. Just to clarify, you may not have to purchase the software to do what you want but use their free version. This is worth exploring. As for the OBD interface, might want to ask that question is a specific f150 forum and get an idea of what others are using.    High speed and medium speed compatibility would be nice for future toying. For your truck, you only need high speed interface. I can't remember what pins. Your truck has a gateway module DLC.  Basically it's a router that allows the different networks to communicate, but also your scan tool to communicate with all the networks over HS CAN 1 and 2.   The only software related mod I have done to my car is change the 3 turn signal blinks to 4.   Happy modding!
    • Ok that makes sense. When I saw swan I figured it was an member id. When I went to cub today I asked the HS kid if they had any  I got "I know we have them I just don't know where they'd be". I said freezers maybe by the other tots he said "what makes you think that" You can't make it up!
    • I think Schwan's is what was meant.   https://www.schwans.com/products/product?id=60297   The operator person will bring them right to your abode.

    • Box? i don't think I've ever seen them but will be looking in a little while
    • Buy a box of cheesy tots.  Cook.   Use rack over sheet pan on grill or in oven.  😀
    • Cheesy tots sound great! Anyone got a recipe?
    • If you're feeling adventurous some time follow the same process you just explained but instead of using a rib rub try using a generous amount of Montreal Chicken seasoning with yellow mustard as your glue.  Also, try a wing or thigh before using the Famous Dave sauce.   Goof Luck
    • I took wings, thighs and legs and put rib rub on them and let them sit for 4 hours then I smoked them for about 90 minutes this morning. Tonight I put them on the grill to crisp up and slathered with Famous Dave's. I seem to kill chicken on the grill but with the smoker I can regulate better plus all that flavor. Only way I'll do chicken now!
    • The grain belt is a bigger sin.😁
