Anyone use "Gulp" nightcrawlers?

5 posts in this topic

Has anyone used the "Gulp" nightcrawlers with either a Lindy Rig or on a jig? If so how did they work. I'm wondering if they may be an option for Boundry Waters trips.

have used the 4" ones but I prefer the 4" gulp trailers, more bulk to them. Should work well in the BWCA pretty sure the fish have not had a chance to see many of them..

They have worked ok for me in the past but if I kept a record natural verses Gulp I think I would be safe to say natural has worked better for me

Let us know how it goes! Seems like a good plan. One thing I've heard about GULP though is that if you let it freeze, the chemical comp changes somehow and can actually repel fish. crazy.gif Has anyone else heard this?

My neighbor said he saw it on a show and the Berkley rep actually said it. He was particularly frustrated to find this out AFTER our laker fishing trip in 20 below weather where he tipped just about every lure he tried with some sort of GULP! mad.gif

Thankfully, I think you won't be running the risk of freezing on your trip! grin.gif

For some reason I am one of those guys that everytime I am in L&M I have to buy some more fishing "stuff" With that said, I have used Gulp, Powerbait and many other artificial baits. None of them have ever worked as well (walleyes) for me as a plain jig and minnow, lindy and crawler or leech. I did pretty well with 6" gulp crawlers for smallies up on Namaken last summer though. I do like that type of bait when I am going on extended camping trips. No worries about keeping bait alive.

      Yup!  I can see how that would be annoying!    Welcome to Fishing Minnesota though.  Glad to see your posts.

      Got out on Saturday along with my brother who went out in his boat. So much mud that we went our separate ways searching for better water. With 3 in his boat he caught 5 Coho and 5 Lake Trout. I found a nice spot and went 2/5 before the wind messed up the spot. Sunday morning went out with my brother to the same spot and had a double before the third line was out. Ended up going 7/11 before a storm with red in it chased us off the lake. Loonasea was correct on the nice size of the Coho's right now. All fish were caught with stick baits on top.

      Soooo many spots to hit, your going to love the yak, JC!   And Royce is right about an anchor. This would be my first investment.

      My unit is not a link unit. I thought they worked the bugs out of these units. 19 years ago they recalled all of these when almost all of them failed. Fingers crossed I guess.

             Hi guys - went out on Blue lake yesterday .... water temps around 61 -62 on the surface.    Tried for some walleye with ripple shads in the weeds with no success, did manage a nice Bass.  we switched to crappies and managed keeping a nice meal.  Let a nice monster Blue Gill go (9.75") and kept some nice Sunnies for the frying pan.   Pan fish were pretty active if you hit the right spots.  A lot of people out there and the access was not a place to be in a hurry!!   We had to work for the crappies and the ones we caught were 9"-10" crappies full of eggs.  I would guess that although the ice was out early, many of the species are now late and delayed on the spawn.   if this weather don't warm up quick, i think the bass will drop their eggs and it won't be a good year for bass spawn this year.    Talked to some anglers out their bass fishing and they thought it was very slow and were puzzled.   Cret

      I apologize for my word choice. I'm from chisholm n most of my camping trips growing up were decided after work on Friday n we can't do that now. The only positives that have come from the reservation system is ppl who have never been 2 the park (5%) now don't have 2 worry about a spot n the fishing guides don't have 2 worry about finding a place 4 shore lunch.

      Sorry I had to edit your title.  I've been hearing some people are upset about the change.  But I also heard there were some positives about it too.  I can't say anything one way or the other since I'm not affected.

        It does have lakers but I think they closed it for harvest.  I thought I read it was due to those lakers being a different strain and getting fished down a little too much.   That laker Rob caught was a hawg!  Too bad he got it taken away.

      The fact that ppl have to reserve a campsite is absolute BS. The only thing the park accomplished by making ppl reserve campsites is lowering the amount of ppl who visit the park.
