I am thinking of using the Gulp leaches or minnows on a drop-shot but haven't had a chance to since the season isn't open here until 3rd weekend of June.  :'(

I did however use normal Powerbait leaches and minnows and they worked just fine.

Yeah, I should have done some research first.  Turns out Iaconelli loves this bait for drop shotting smallies, and Aaron Martens used it in the Pittsburg classic and it was good for 2nd place.  So for any who have been following this thread, apparently the answer is: yes.  I'll be trying them this summer at some offshore haunts.

hello

new to this forum. i can honestly say that using the gulp minnow on the drop shot has been really good to me. i have placed 2nd in two tourneys and this technique has been killer for me.  i got everyone scratching their heads!  they work great on largemouth as well.  just hope i can keep it undercover a little longer

I'll shoot gulp Gobies up here in Michigan. They imitate sculpin and gobies which are major smallie forage everywhere. I find that the bigger fish avoid them, but if the bites tough you take what you can get. An interesting fact I learned about Sculpin and Gobies that helped in my presentation is that they have no air bladder and can't raise and lower themselves in the water column effectively. In other words, they're bound to the bottom.
