Gulp Alive

Recommended Posts

I typically use plastics for panfish, but am looking at possibly purchasing some Gulp Alive to add to my arsenal. I really like the looks of the pearl white minnows. My question is this...Does anyone "soak" their normal plastics in the alive juice? How long can you keep the stuff before it turns bad. I want to see how far I can stretch out the stuff before dropping the hammer on purchasing it. If I can double dip, that would be great. grin

Thanks,

CA

the Linders on the show stated that the gulp alive can sit in the boat all year so you will always have bait with.......now they redip the alive bait in the juice but I don't see why you wouldn't be able to dip other plastics in it also......I know I am going to try some soon..

It says on the side of the container not to dip other plastics in the "gravy". but you can re-dip the "alive" bait back in for a recharge. I tried some of the minnows, they worked alright as long as you keep the bait moving. I then took some of the gravy and dipped a different plastic in it and the red color of the plastive tube started to "bleed" off. So that didn't work to well. although I did dip a regular gulp grub in the gravy and that seemed to work alright.

I use the pearl Gulp minnow all the time with my jig combos. FYI, all Gulp products are not considered plastic and are biodegradable. They will shrink and become hard if you don't keep them in their packaging or in Alive juice. A regular gulp and gulp alive is the same thing. The alive meaning just means it comes with the gulp secret formula juice in a container. Plus it looks somewhat realistic in that little bucket of alive juice.

Regular plastic lures/baits can degrade or possibly change the alive formulation thats why Berkley says to keep it away from other plastics.

I bought some today and noticed the caution on the side of the package. So since all gulp is the same, I could actually buy many different combinations of gulp and throw them in the alive juice container? Would this be an option, or would I be de-funking the juice?

I am typically not a scent bandwagon jumper, however I am intrigued with this product for some reason. Since I have it now I am going to be doing some more experimenting with it.

Any more tips for using this stuff? Bare hooking it, tipping jigs? What methods do you prefer to fish with it?

I was at Joes Sproting Goods and asked a guy there. He had a Berkley rep there and asked him, and they said you can put all Gulp, bagged or Alive, in the juice and you can mix and match. I guess they will be coming out with a "sampler" collection of Gulp in the Alive jar later this summer.

So, based on that, I am mixing and matching as we speak smile

You gotta love a little science experiment... Hopefully you don't blow up the lab. grin Who knows what's in that mystery "gravy"

If the stuff screws up non-Gulp plastics maybe it will screw up a plastic container. I read something on FM about Gulp having a problem with their containers. I'm not sure that I would experiment with the wife's tupperware. Maybe an old glass jar is a better solution.

That secret juice will eat thru your hands if you leave it on too long. I hate reaching in the bucket because it gets on my fingers and then by the end of the day my fingers are all cut up and dry... thats juice is some crazy stuff.

    • If things in there were actually a bargain they might’ve moved more stuff.  I’ve picked up a couple things there but not more than 5-10% of the times I’ve visited it.   The pricing coupled with the “as is” , no returns policy kept me a bit gun shy of making it a viable source of gear.
    • At least you’re settling for three strikes and you’re out!   Tough start but at least you know now and have a chance to rebound in some way.  Hopefully you can at least get that late season hunt on the “old” property.  Always tough when the permission starts fading after working and and getting to know a good property.
    • Looks like severe heartburn to me!😄
    • As stated for the above reasons....I totally agree.  I can tell you this much, I also hunt late into the season if I am not tagged out, and I loosen my sling more so my thick gloves will slide through it and I can grip my bow.  I have always shot with one, so i can't speak to shooting without one.  I get a piece of mind having it that I can relax my grip and now worry about the bow "jumping" out of my hand,
    • Antsy?  That would be an understatement.  I got out bow hunting 1 time last year due to the job I was working at the time.  That job is history and am now working a job that will allow me to hunt as much as I used to.  Last month has been pretty much a disaster.......the land that we hunt on, first when we went in to kill the areas for the food plot, the guy running the sprayer decided it would be a good idea to put Roundup on the clover plot I put in last year.  It was thick and awesome and I could tell the deer were just hammering it.  Mostly does and fawns, couple small bucks, but hey, when the does need a man, he usually shows up.  Needless to say, I was a little upset when this happened.  Almost lost it when the guy got done spraying the plot and then drove over to me and said "I killed that plot, we should plant a clover or chicory plot there".  Just shook my head and walked away.  Strike one......then about 2 weeks ago the owner of the property informed us that we would no longer be able to bow hunt on his land.  Only muzzleloader, and that's only if they are completely tagged out by then.  STRIKE TWO........so I just planted over 200 dollars worth of seed in food plots that I may never even get to hunt over.  STRIKE THREE!!!!   So now I am in scramble mode to try and find some private land to hunt or start getting out to scout public land in hopes to find a good spot.  All i can do is make the best out of it and hopefully things work out the best.  Either way.....I'm going to up a tree somewhere and totally loving the experience of sitting in the woods with mother nature, with a huge smile on my face!!!!
    • Hey all...........thinking about pulling the trigger on a new bow for the upcoming season (I know a little late in the year, but it is what it is in my world).  Right now I am shooting an Elite GT500 which is a double cam bow.  Thinking about possibly going to a single cam instead of the double but not really sure if that is the route I want to take.  Looking for opinions from folk who shoot either and what they like don't like about the bow.  Not looking for any bow bashing, just what everyone likes and why.  Thanks!
    • I did this with a friend. I actually think it was what is called back bacon not buckboard as he cut it out of the rear loin instead of the shoulder. IMHO it tastes really good. Like a ham of sorts. If it goes over well then I'll do a batch from the shoulder and I think the extra fat content will work better.   I used a bacon mix from Walton's that I ordered.
