One born every minute - Gulp Panfish baits

5 posts in this topic

My new equipment bug has tempted me over the edge: I'm going to try Gulp panfish baits and see whether I feel like a fool afterward. I'll give them a fair trial, which means it could be a while before I report anything back here.

A rather inauspicious start. I tried the chartreuse maggots to tip a 1/32 ounce jig and the maggots split easily and fall off. Fished right after Friday night's lightning storm, so it wasn't a fair test. The scent makes a great attractant for yellow jackets. I also got the earthworm style baits but have not tried them yet.

Really need to have a good panfish day where they can be compared against live bait and jigs tipped with plastic.

Its not like they are new to the market, use that Gulp in the winter - Try the Berkley powerbait Honey worms , my son uses them on pannies with plain or red hooks. They outfish the other plastic micro shads, plastic worms, gulp, etc.. He calls them "money" worms!

I haven't used any of them except a freebie jar of the maggots that I got with a rod purchase. Used them this spring and they worked better than the worms we were using and you could catch 2, 3, or even more on one bait. I want to get more if I ever start doing more panfishing.

I have to admit I use them. I was born and raised catching live bait for a living but I seldom go out in the winter without on bag of power nymphs and one jar of honey worms. Good back up if minnows don't do it.

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.

      Why so many batteries???  lol   I use with weed wacker and leaf blower.  pine needle blower mainly  soooo much nicer than sweeping;

      then I will need to buy the bigger dewalt batteries. they look spendy.  I have 7 ryobi batteries now. 2 are the 4 amp.    600 pounds should be plenty  from what all are saying. I can take the 2 , 4 amps back and grab the dewalt. hmmmmmm, decisions desicions. lol
