Been there, done that. They don't work as well as other, softer plastics for drop shotting. I've tried them many times, but am not convinced they do anything for the presentation.

Give me a Roboworm in "Aaron's Magic".  :)

There are a few gulp products I like for drop shotting, and alot that I don't. Goby's, 4" minnows, 4" leeches, shaky and slim shaky worms, any gulp worms infact, sinking minnows,and just about any other gulp product are in the "do not like" catagory. However...... there are 3 or 4 different gulp baits that I like and produce very well.............I 'll keep that to myself.

Yes!

Gulp! works.

For catfish!!!!!

Ike said to use the Gulp! on a drop shot but I never caught a bass.

Did catch some nice catfish.  :)

I dropshot 2.5 and 3" Gulp minnows and they work great both up north in clear water and here on lakes in the SE.  On both smallies and largemouths.  The ONLY dropshot bait?  Nope, but Watermelon/Pearl Gulp minnows have become a real confidence dropshot bait for me.  The occasional catfish if you leave the bait sitting 10 mins in one spot?  Yeah.  And that's OK too, IMO.

A lot of guys swear by them here.

I can't get em to work for me. I don't really care for baits that can dry up like gulp does.

I hate Berkley gulp,But i love the berkley powerbaits.

I carry four different Gulp! Alive baits at all times.  They are like crack for the fishies.

In our part of the country Gulp baits (esp the Goby bait) have done very well in tournaments where smallmouth have been the primary fish targeted.

I found Gulp more beneficial if the waters cold, say less than 50*, on a drop shot.  But I don't think it offers much of an advantage over regular plastics in "warmer" water.  JMHO

I have had decent success dropshotting the 3" Gulp Alive Minnows for bass especially during tough bite times. They will catch about anything that swims particularly catfish. The 1" size is deadly on Crappie, Bluegill, Yellow and White Perch.

I've had days were fish wouldn't bite any thing but a gulp product (other then live bait of course) though this was only 3 or 4 days during the summer. So far I only caught one decent bass with it 4 pounds, the rest were puny. I use only the salt water gulp (for fresh water), oddly enough with the fresh water baits... I haven't had any luck.

Take a 3" Gulp minnow and nose hook it on a ds rig. Take another rod and nose hook a 3" Sluggo. Try both out in shallow, clear water so you can see both acting.

You tell me which is more life like.  :)

Yes, they do work for saltwater, dropshot would be the best presentation for it in saltwater. You can also try carolina rig.

Almost all fresh water lures/baits for freshwater also works for saltwater.

I have had a lot of success swimming a 3 inch Gulp minnow on an 1/8 jighead. I've caught almost everything on them. It's a great bait for walleyes, smallmouth, largemouth, whitebass, crappie, wipers, and less targeted fish like drum, catfish, and gar. I've been trying the regular 3 inch power minnow and I've had similar success without the problem of them drying up.

i think you guys need to read the question again. He's asking if it also works in saltwater?

I took it as.. he has used Saltwater gulp for saltwater applications but was wondering if the fresh water version works well for freshwater. If your correct in what he meant then I'd say yes since I use the saltwater gulp for Freshwater fishing, or at least it wont hurt to try. Personally I like the Saltwater version cause the baits appeal more to me, a lot of the fresh water stuff (least what they sell local) is boring and doesn't look like any thing a fish would want to bite. Also they have a broader selection and most of it is cheaper then the freshwater.
