Berkley gulp baits

Recommended Posts

I can see that Bio-bait has a very good folowing on this site. If I could find it locally I would most likely buy some. Is catch n tackle the only place to obtain Bio-bait?

If Bio-bait is unobtainable locally would Berkley gulp bait be a good substitue?

The new gulp products arew working well for me this winter. I get the product that looks like a huge waxie and comes in jars. Simply slice off a piece an eighth of an inch thick from the end of one of these and hang on the hook. Sunfish and craps will readily hit the stuff. My two biggest beefs are: it is seldom good for multiple fish and if left in the open air it will dry out and is no good then. By putting a half one of these baits on the hook of a swedish pimple or a small kastmaster and jigged, I have taken some very nice trout. The white, chartreuse and orange have all been producers for me.

I have tried the gulp baits this winter with a little success, but it still isn't even close to the success that I have had with real bait.

In my opinion real bait will always outperform the fake stuff, even if it is made with real bait. And, for the price of the gulp baits, you could get some real bait for the same price.

The gulp and power bait Maggots have worked real well for me. Try the maggots for looper fishing. You will be surprised.

I've used the power maggots with pretty good results. While real bait out-fishes it most of the time, there have been a few times when the power bait caught more fish. I figure a jar will last me years, so it doesn't hurt to take it along and try it if things are tough.

Axel Grease,
Sorry Bio-Bait is not readily available in your area for retail, yet... the product is very new and just now doing "baby steps"! It being only about nine months old.
I just sent samples to Jim Tate at Scheels Sports Store (College Square Store in Iowa) for him to see. He may recommend it to other Scheels Stores.
It takes some time to get the "retail thing" process started. Richard Smith (owner of Bio-Bait) just got the right 6mm bags and header card done this week for presenting Bio-Bait to retail.
So... it is just starting. smile.gif
I can not wait, being as I am the national distributor!
As for how you can get Bio-Bait... and fast, you have a couple of options.
You may order online from www.catch-n.com and I most times can ship next day by Priorty US Mail, or you may send a personal check made to:
Catch-N Tackle
1035 Robert Pl. SW
Owatonna, MN 55060.
I most often ship the next day after I get your check. Remember to add shipping and MN tax (no shipping on orders over $25.00).
Either way on internet or mail orders, I make sure that Fishing Minnesota gets a "commission" (this helps out our FM Family site ands lets Rick pay some bills here).

I am working hard on getting Bio-Bait into retail stores. Right now it is only at Blue Water Bait & Sports in Bemidji, MN .
If you will kindly relate our contact information to your local bait shop, I will gladly sell Bio-Bait to them.
I do support local bait shops, they are the backbone of the industry!
Shop owners should have their tackle distributors contact me at Catch-N Tackle or, shops may contact me directly.

I have a long history with Berkley. I have used Berkley Power Baits (grubs & worms) for years & years. I am quite sold on them, they work! I have used Crappie Nibbles with good success too. I have not tryed Gulp.
I am solid sold on Bio-Bait... which I see as never replacing real live bait. Bio-Bait is a great addition to dress with any plastics, however! It is also extremely handy!
Thanks for your support and interest.

I've been using the Berkley Power Nibbles for a few years & they work excellent tipped on a jig for winter panfish. I recently bought some of the Gulp baits but have yet to use them much. I tried the earthworm Gulp for the 1st time last weekend & caught a few trout. I'll have to try it crappie fishing this weekend & report back. Vern

    • Well Thank God for your wife. Shes a saint. 😇
    • 1 x 6 untreated red cedar bds cut to 15" for the weber has worked good for me. You can get lots of cooks on one board.  It's a lot cheaper than getting them at a grill store. The salmon looks good!
    • Yes, it's Food Grade cedar! 😋
    • Seeing the plank brings up a question.   Is that cedar that is sold as cooking planks any different than the stuff sold at the lumber yard for various purposes, like siding or roofing or docks?   
    • solo o... FALTA PESCAAA.. 
    • Last friday of lent and Coborns had a flash sale on fresh salmon so I put some on my overpriced pellet grill.   Good thing my wife talks me into sacrificing eating meat on Fridays of lent, you know, for Jesus.    
    • Got up early and put this small piece of brisket on my overpriced pellet smoker. I've never done one this small but my buddy who owns a meat market gave it to me at half price to get rid of it. It's  almost foiling time now at 10:30 am.
    • I’m in St. Cloud for Easter weekend, and decided to check out nearby Little Rock Creek. I had very low expectations. There’s a few easements, and a nice little wildlife management area, but the creek really isn’t very fishable. Water was pretty high, and banks were flooded. Overhanging brush would make fishing impossible in summer. Didn’t catch anything. Wasn’t disappointed though. Now I know not to bother again. Was still a nice morning for a walk in the country.
    • Haha. So, her boots kept falling off so much (several sizes too big), she eventually put them on the wrong feet. I tried telling her that, which is always a losing battle on my part. I thought maybe, that if they were on the wrong feet, they would stay on better. They did not.   This is the best time of year to take kids out trout fishing. No leaves on the trees, brush is still dead and matted down, so casting and walking are super easy.
