Gulp Sinking Minnow

Recommended Posts

Any word on this soft bait? I bought a pack of them today just out of curiousity, plus they looked hitable. Anyone have much luck with these baits? By the way if you don't know what they look like here is a link to them. http://ec3.images-amazon.com/images/P/B000EPB3IY.01-AZ71P3AYYLDQO._SCMZZZZZZZ_V54700946_.jpg

They do look interesting, I think they would be really to use. You can make up some good techniques using those. Anyway they look good now let me know how they work.

Hmm, Im going to have to wait awhile to get back to you guys on how they work. I won't be able to throw soft baits like these until spring  :-/, too cold in Nj. So far no one has tryed these baits? I can't be the only guy who bought a pack, can I?  ;)

Tried them last summer in Junebug and Watermelon. Had no luck, however we killed em on the Junebug Gulp Nightcrawlers. Don't know what made the difference. This was in RI.

I use these baits all the time.  I fish them weightless and dead stick them.  Bass love them.  I must have gone through 15 packages this year.  I even used the 4 inch version on a dropshot rig for smallmouth bass and it worked very well.  I mostly use watermelon and junebug.  Excellent bait if you can stand the smell.

Ive fished them in several colors from flesh to chartreuse to junebug with no luck there VERY stiff and don't have much motion at all, now the night crawlers on the other hand ;). Get a pack of those in flesh or pumpkin seed even black and sit back and reel in the fatties. Virtually every big bass Ive caught has been of on of these. Also another tip is don't buy the old packages that have a hard plastic trey I'm telling you for some reason and I've done lots of testing with this theory, they just don't work as well. Maybe its an older formula but i find they almost repel fish where throwing a night crawler and twitching it at the bottom brings the big uns. But IMO put those sinking minnows down and pick the night crawlers up.

I don't like gulp baits for the same reason as capn cali,  mostly the phew factor.

other popular baits that I won't buy due to the smell is the gambler garlic scented plastics.  These suckers can make your eyes water.

Yum stinks too.

Each of these baits has legions of followers and so are proven successful.  they just smell bad.

It clashes with my natural fragrant essence

Dude, GULP! is my goto bait in lots of forms.  But they ain't cheap.  I throw the Sinking Minnow as a kind of search bait, 'cause they will draw fish into a strike.  Once I am sure that I have located them, I will switch to a Senko or Zoom worm or something that will hold up better.  Whatever this formula is that these things are made from is dynomite!  They are water soluable, so you have to keep them wet although they will come back after drying out -- in fact, if you leave them in water long enough, they will completely melt away.  This is part of the attraction as they are emitting scent and flavor in the water which helps to attract the fish.  Probably the biggest "draw back" to GULP! is that it will catch all kinds of fish.  A couple of years ago, I threw a GULP! Turtleback Worm (6") into a blue gill bedding area -- it felt like I was being hit with a machine gun.  When I reeled it in, there was only about 2.5 -3" of the lure left -- I laughed and made another cast as a joke and pulled in a 3.5 -4#er from the same spot.

This was the one GULP! lure I never really got into -- they were just too small and hard to rig on the jig.  They do have a couple of jig trailers out now that are awsome.

Biggest bass I caught last year was on a sinking minnow.  I have caught lots of bass on these and usually fish them like a senko (duh) much more durable then GYCBs and seem to work just as well.  

I love em and will tie one one without hesitation.

Gulp is the worst crap I have ever seen! I only managed one bass but I did catch some water snakes with it. Looks like I need to post the unopened bags of Gulp I have in the swap forum?

i bought a pack of these a while ago along with some nightcrawlers, both in pumpkinseed. i haven't tried them yet but can you wacky rig them? what i would do is wacky rig them, toss 'em, when they hit the bottom, wait a couple seconds, then just lift it and let it sink, wait a bit more, lift it, let it sink etc. of course senkos are probably better for that sort of thing, but just a theory, i'll probably chuck these  ;)

Actually, I heard an interview on the radio with a Berkley guy who was talking about GULP! and he said that since the things were biodegradable they could be eaten -- don't think I would want to but there is the 411.

DEAD STICK THE BAIT. reel in about a foot of line a minute and use a large hook and watch your line. use on a 3/0 ewg and expose the hook point like a fluke and hold on!!!

In my pond, there is a killer senko bite in the spring, where i cant catch them on anything but stickbaits. I used kinami flash, gycb senkos, luck e strike jogger worms, yum dingers, and gulp sinking minnows. Believe it or not, the gulp baits get the most strikes every time.
