Berkley Gulp!

Recommended Posts

Anybody tried this stuff out with success..? I was on a school of sunny today and catching with wax worms. Put some Gulp! on to try it out and got nothing. Isolated incident, or is this stuff just no good...?

I love gulp for walleyes. Also Berkley walleye scented plastics is real good. Gulp is a bit softer wich helps with fish holding on longer. Try the power crawlers on your spinner rigs.

I was using it today to see if it was true that it is as good as the live stuff. Had a lot of action going on on the vex when I would put it down there but didn't seem to get many to bite. I didn't bring any live bait out which I will do tomarrow so I don't know if they were just inactive.Hopefully it was just the day and not the product cause I would like to have it around on the few times I go panfishing during the season.

had a lot of success with it this summer for crappies but have yet to try it during the hard water....One thing that i have had a lot of success with is the berkley powerbait crappie nibbles, which i think work better than waxies

Don't give up on it just yet. The smallest Berkley product I would use thru the ice are the power wrigglers, the one inch twisters, or th crappie nibbles and the gulp larva in jars( if the fish are quite active). Most plastics today are designed with the open water angler in mind....doesn't mean though that they cannot have thier place thru the ice. I'd be doing some custminzing...trimming, lopping, modifying, etc...to get these larger baits downsized to work for you. Thru the ice you need to be very aware of profile...too much and the fish will only look.

Sure life happens- why wait....The Crapster....good fishing guys!

Crappie Tom has some good advise. I have used the wigglers in green and pink with success on active fish. I still much prefer live bait through the ice. I also find lighter equipment and smaller lures to work better through the ice.

I tryed it on Sat. side by side with wax worms. The results were, that the sunnies would swim up to the gulp and stare at it and maybe grab it for a second then spit it out and just hang out. The waxies, they would emiediatly grab and run with it. FISH ON! smile.gif I used two different kinds of gulp. Maybe it will work better for perch or crapps. I dont know confused.gif Good luck, Tim

I had some real good success with Gulp for bass this summer (sinking minnow, turtle back and nightcrawler). Just don't leave the bait outside the package - it will dry up just like a real worm...

    • Wisconsin's traditional nine-day gun deer hunting season opens this Saturday and with snow in many northern areas and more in the forecast for Friday into Saturday but with otherwise relatively mild hunting conditions it should make for a good opener.Hunters can find all the information they need by searching the DNR HSOforum for keyword "deer." Or new for this year, hunters with mobile devices can download the Hunt Wild Wisconsin mobile app, which provides mapping, shooting hours and easy access to regulations. Hunters can download the app from the DNR HSOforum at keywords "hunt app."Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park has begun to ice over. Skim and shelf ice is forming on lakes and some smaller lakes have frozen over.Photo credit: DNRThis is the earliest possible opening of the season and while it is winding down in some areas, rutting activity is still noticeable with bucks visiting their scrapes and rubs and still being seen chasing does. A reminder that hunters must register their deer by 5 p.m. the day after recovery and registration is now easier than ever online, by phone or in person at registration stations. Search the DNR HSOforum for "GameReg," for details. Hunters can get a deer tested for CWD at no cost and can find sampling locations by searching for keywords "CWD Sampling." .
    • It looks great! Throw a few nonslip rugs down.  It's Winter after all! 😋
    • I converted mine to 1 ton Reese 12v winch. Seems to work well with my light weight wheel house.  
    • Looks great but cold and slippery, I'm a carpet guy.
    • absolutely 100% yes. Like with the augers though, use a good drill. My Ryobi barely does both sides once on a battery, my Fuel is 1000 times better. It's not recommended to go down with a drill, only up. You'll see all this on Nutz w e b s i t e. 
    • I missed it too, the caps always just own us. 
    • Who all uses this system? Do you raise and lower your house with a drill.   I was looking at picking up the 2 speed winchs for both axles and the hitch winch.   Are they worth the money??
    • Great showing by the team last night! It was exciting to see the effort level way up and the new guys seem to plug into their roles well. Much more excited for the rest of the season!
    • I run 6lb on two rods and 4lb on two. I like the (possibly imagined) extra feel on the 4lb for light bites. I run swivels on my rods too, unless there's a very finicky bite
