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've fished the hex hatch many times. In wisconsin.The hexs are out at my lakevplace in grand rapids Mn.  its usually a little later on the river. So this weekend into next week and the following week ought to be good. Late in the evening.. like  9:30 on...  I haven't been to the straight for years... I wish you'd let me know how it goes...

      6/24/17     Got out on Washington this morning to target walleyes. Cold and windy! Busy today--a bass tournament going on. We fished several spots with leeches under a slip float for eyes. Only caught one small one, and missed a couple bites that might have been walleyes. Did catch several medium to large smallies and one largemouth. Got off the lake about 10:00 as we saw the first wave of rain approaching. Not interested in fishing cold, wind-driven rain. Guess mother nature doesn't always look at the calendar, which said summer started this week. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Just back from Big Sandy, fished the main basin and concentrated on two humps. Caught five walleye and kept three that were in the slot, all about 15 inchers. Quit sooner than planned as the wind really started kicking up. Leeches, lindy rigs, red hooks and a green bead did the trick. Tried spinners and crawlers with no luck. All were caught in 9 - 12 FOW.   BIG fire in McGregor this morning, a trucking business on the east end of town burnt down.

      Alright, so I got out yesterday in the early afternoon I decided to go try the Mississippi there is this little public boat dock, so I dropped a line there and within the hour I got a Northern Pike it was about 24 inches long and then about a half hour I pulled in a blacktail redhorse an it was about 12 or 13 inches long. So not a bad day out there on the river for dock fishing! I caught both the fish on them green night crawlers, I also tried throwing out a crank, a jig, and a watermelon Senko. All they wanted was them green worms! Thanks for the tips I finally caught a couple fish (hopefully there is more to come)
