I've found they work purdy darm well.

Only used the curly tails. They've landed me pups and flounder. I've had some blues chew the arse end off them. Crabs like em, too.

I hear the paddle tails work even better. However, I haven't had any luck finding them locally.

I tried the Gulp sandfleas just 2 weeks ago (both sizes, the 1/2 inch and 1 inch). They Gulp fleas were ignored, but got hits on real sandfleas.

I had some of the Gulp peeler crabs, but didn't try them.

Gulp!'s are the shizzit!!! I didn't want to believe it, but it's true. Never tried just soaking them, though....always a jigging lure for me. I like the shrimp, and the curly tails.

I sit on a sand bar and sell them to fish if I could. It would be a lucrative business.

Gulp baits

Have used the pogys, sardines, and shrimp along the southeast coast and the Florida, Mississippi Gulf and they've done real well. Their performance has made me decide to carry several packages for jig fishing along with some fishbites and D.O.A baits. Work great in the place of live bait. Wouldn't hesitate to use them anywhere. Note: Make sure you seal the Gulp bait bag well. If it leaks into your tackle box/bag its a real stinker:eek:

Shrimp

I used the shrimp Gulp in May in/near a creek down in Hilton Head and it outfished anything else I used. Caught whiting, flounder, and specks on it while my girlfriend's uncle was catching flounder "only" with mud minnows.

1/2 oz. lead head and bounced it along the bottom - worked really well. Had a flounder of at least 3 lbs. pop off right at my feet - nice fish - and caught about six or seven other fish while using it (two hours or so).

Some buddies and I also used the shrimp while jigging off Ocean City, NJ in July and caught all the spike weakies and croakers we could possibly want. No size, mind you, but it was a fun way to end a long day of fishing. The Gulps outfished squid and minnows by a long way.

they make freshwater gulp. worms, grubs, etc. the worms work good on bass, also caught some catfish on them by accident.

Gulp baits are the best thing for inshore since the hook. I gotten to where I fish the 3 inch shrimp and 5 inch jerkbaits almost exclusively. They will catch anything that swims. I've caught blues, puppy drum, croakers, pinfish, flounder, a ton of speckled trout, and even a few massive sting rays. I usually bring about 4 or 5 colors of each and rotate through until I find what they are swallowing and not just bumping.

The nuclear chicken color is truly fish crack.

I tried the Gulp crabs in a drum blitz, they turned their nose's up and opted for the real thing.

From what ive bin reading,it seems that the gulpbaits need to be worked to catch fish.So has me wondering about the clam,flea,crab and sandworm baits.Seems as they bypass these baits for natural.

I finally tried them last weekend at Rudy inlet. Borrowed some of the sardine (3" i think) on a 3/8 jig head. Caught croker, puppy drum and flounder. I am a beleiver. Just wish they didnt cost so much. 6 tails for close to 6.00 vs regular jig tails for less than 2.00. But what the hell if they catch fish.......gonna try some of the longer tails 5" I think they are for stripers this fall see how well they do
