Berkley GULP Leeches (and I'm not kidding)

3 posts in this topic

My son and I had no live bait and living near Cabelas, we went to their bait shop to buy leeches. We found them to be really poor quality. We decided not to buy. We did get some crawlers. We then fished a nearby lake. Lindy rigs. Not much biting. My son then pulled a pack of Berkley Gulp leeches he got for xmas out of his tackle bag. WE COULDN'T BELIEVE IT.!!!

In an hour of fishing a "ridge" from 11 ft to 16 ft, we caught 4 really nice bass, 3 notherns, and yes 2 nice walleyes all while trying to keep the big sunfish off the bait. It was indeed incredible. All fish were returned to the water while keeping the walleyes. I was stunned, amazed in that through all this the crawlers only brought small sunfish. Maybe if we had used live leeches we would have done just as well but still, all in all, it was an eye popper !

I got on the internet to see if I could find anything about Berkley Glup and walleye fishing. There wasn't much out there I could find. One site talked about 2 brothers (they are in the fishing business) who used Gulp Leeches on Mille Lacs with success.! I also found scents being used in walleye tournaments.

Long story short....HAS ANYONE EVER USED Berkley Gulp or power leeches on ML ? How'd you do?

I have tried the berkley gulp alive. we were on M. L. on Jul 13th we had leeches, crawlers, and the gulp I used the Gulp one had leeches and one used crawlers and we all caught equal numbers of eyes. we didn't catch many it was slow but the gulp caught as many as the live bait but I will hold judgement until I am out on a more productive day

Haven't used it on ML (mainly because live leeches are readily available up there), but have used it at a lake up in the Brainerd area. Good sized panfish seem to love the stuff.

I might give it a shot up at ML...I'll make sure I post the results.

        Yes sir! 8ft-9ft rods seem to work the best IMO.

      4/23/17     Crappies still biting in west Metro area lakes. Water temp in the mid 50's now, and the fish are moving a little shallower. We caught tons of 8 to 11 inch crappies in about ten feet of water, with some weeds on the bottom. Fished a jig tipped with a Powerbait minnow about four feet below a slip-float for great success. Some sunfish starting to show up in the same areas. Water temp probably won't rise much this week with the forecast of cooler temps and quite a bit of rain, but as the water does warm fish should continue to move shallower and get more aggressive. Check out my You Tube channel for some short video clips and a full length show about springtime crappie fishing. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.
