Anyone ever use Berkly Gulp? I picked up some 3" shaky Shad last night to try on the river. The stuff looks so real its amazing.

The walleye feed heavily on shad around Minnehaha creek so I thought it would be worth the $5.49 investment. The Gulp Alive leeches look incredible as well but at $19.99 a tub I might need to here some good reviews of them first.

i know from using them in the cannon river that if you use them right you can catch fish every cast but if you fish them too fast you cant catch anything. so i would buy them but make sure to fish them right. T-Bone

I've done good on the 'Gulp' frogs and both the floating and sinking worms. This year I've got some of their soft jerk-baits waiting for opener so I can try them for the first time smile smiley

Gulp leeches and worms have worked well for me on Leech lake walleye the last few years. I fish it with a jig and a small treble stinger hook. Walleye don't seem to want to hang on to rubber as long as live bait so that's why I use the stinger. People using live bait seem to catch more fish then me but I catch my share. The larger fish sometimes just smash the jig while smaller fish seem to just pick at it. This year I picked up some of the Gulp alive leeches but can't say they work any better then the regular Gulp in bags for the type of fishing I do. The small perch and walleye don't seem to get caught while the larger ones do.

With two guys fishing I've used Gulp Minnow Grubs head to head against minnows , and I've seen both ends of the spectrum. We had a day where we caught 55 'eyes between us, and the fathead chubs produced 28 fish to the Gulp's 27. I've also seen days where the 'eyes wouldn't touch the Gulp, but the minnows produced in excess of 60 walleyes. Suffice it to say the gentleman using the Gulp switched over in a hurry. I've also used the Gulp worms and had the same varying degree of success. Some days the Gulp produced fish for fish with the real thing, but other days the efficacy of the real stuff was far greater than the artificial. I love the Gulp Maggots in the pits around here for rainbows. I use it ice fishing, and they love it! There are some instances where the Gulp has been more effective than real stuff. When the bugs (mayflies) start to hatch, I'll use the Gulp Maggots. They've produced walleyes when the fish pretty much had lockjaw. I've also caught some fish during the hatch by putting a small piece of a Gulp Worm on a 6 to 8 foot Lindy Or Roach type rig. grin smiley

If you can find a local manufacturer of soft baits buy from them.
It is important to support local businesses.
The more local the better.

I don't know of anyone local who produces anything similar to the Gulp! series of soft baits. It's not the shape. It's the taste and smell of the Gulp! material. On the other hand, I buy them at the local bait shop, instead of a chain, so I'm supporting a local business.

If you know of someone making an equivalent to Gulp!, I'll sure give 'em a try, though.
