:fishing:Gulp!:fishing:
Anyone else love Gulp! like me? That stuff is amazing for flounder, drum, trout, and blues. What I do is:
1.Tie on a white 3/8oz or 6/8oz orange jig head.
2.Select your Gulp!(3-inch molting or 4-inch pearl white works best for me).
3.Put your Gulp! on the jig head
4.Cast and start catching:):):):)

This is proven a deadly way to catch fish in Davis Canal on Oak Island, I wouldn't be surprised if it would work for you in the creek or canal. I hope this info. proves very effective for you as it has for me!:popcorn:

Gulp are awesome and I've caught a lot of flounder on the pearl white 3" shrimp. But I tried something a little different this past weekend. Was in the Virginia mountains visiting a friend a we were having trouble getting rainbows to cooperate. We tried flies and small spinners for a few hours with no luck. My buddy had a jar of Gulp earthworms and did those do the trick. It was the first time I ever saw Gulp earthworms and you'd swear they were going to crawl out of the jar. Caught some nice trout!!!

Gulps are great stuff as long as the water temps are warm, say over 60* F. After the water cools below that temp they lose their softness and abililty to 'swim' like a regular rubber grub because the stuff they're made with gets hard in the cold water. But that's just the paddle-tail or curly-tailed ones that usually have a good swimming motion. They do still have stink but that's nowhere as important as motion (IMO) if you're fishing for something like Trout, Flounder or Striper that chase baitfish for food.

Alright fellas get off my hind parts !! :D

If you noticed I didn't say they didn't work but I'm one of those that like to watch the action of my lures as I retrieve them and noticed the lack of motion with the Gulps! when the water cools. I guess you still have the 'stink' ;)

Bluefish=costly

The biggest downfall to them I've had is that if there is any sort of bluefish in the water, it's going to cost you! Pinfish will straight nip the tails off the swimming mullet too...that gets old fast at more than $5 a bag. The stuff is awesome for sure though.

love the gulp also, I've been wondering about the gulp "juice"?? I assume it is the same for all the different baits. ie shrimp, swimming mullet, shad, just different colors but same scent??

I like the 5" jerk shads in pearl white and nuclear chicken. The only problem with the gulp is the price!!! Usually when I buy them, I might get one package, so I never really thought about the price. The other day I decided to pick some up at OE2, and I don't know whether all the colors got to me or what, but next thing I know I had about 6 or 7 bags!!! I get up to the counter, get my usual eels and finger mullet, and by the time the cash register got don with me the cashier says, "That'll be $76.95."....lol.. MAANNN,,,, my face literally looked like this :eek:. Hell, I could have gone on an offshore trip for a bit more!!! lol
