Gulp ?

7 posts in this topic

Just wondering how easily Berkley Gulp goes bad. Reason I ask, I have some white 4" grubs that are now turning a little brown. Any ideas if it affect's the bait other than the obvious color change. Thank's.

I have had them in their original sealed plastic bags for two years and no color change, I use pearl white a lot, sure the bag was sealed? I would just go ahead and use them up. Just make sure your bag is sealed.

Ive never had Gulp change colors unless I left it out in the air in the boat. Keep them sealed up and they last forever. I love the gulp Crawlers on my spinner rigs.

Thanks guys, pearl white is my favorite color on the grubs. You are probably right, because its only happened with one bag. They may also have been left outside last year.

Quite possible. I wonder? Might that attract more fish?

      You're running up against a political position here, not a logical one. I'm struggling to remember if it was Pawlenty or Ventura but one of them started to swing things heavily towards "fees" because they could argue that they weren't new taxes. I think that mentality has permeated through many layers of government by now, so I'm not surprised to hear someone from the DNR state that fishing license fees aren't taxes.   It doesn't really matter, we are paying to use something that requires money to stock and manage. Whatever it's called, it will never be free unless fishing pressure drastically decreases.

      Spent a few hours on Skogman yesterday. (3:00 to 6:30)  Most of the time the vexlar was so lit up that you couldn't see the lure. Bad news is that they were very small sunnies and crappies. Fished in the area of the cluster of ice houses in  24  ft water. No fish kept this time out. Good ice but getting a little sloppy.

      Another Spring-like day on Thursday. I got skunked but my buddy landed a couple of nice ones. C & R.

      Very true! Cenaiko Lake had at least 100 houses on it at 7 in the morning on Saturday and it is only a 28 acres. It is absolutely packed with fish though.

      Even in the metro the little bit of snow pack is insulating the ice pretty well so far. I've been out 3 days in a row and haven't noticed any significant melting. The forecasted rain for the next few days will probably change things a little.
