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.

      Got one over 40in on a small local lake like 3-4 yrs back , 2lb line...fishing panfish. Got a pic up in the St cloud reports somewhere. But biggest was just shy of 43 on Rainey River about 20 yrs ago

      If you make up it up this way at all I'll have the peg on a good bite somewhere. Sometimes traveling a little farther north makes ice fishing more enjoyable. Keep on posting, we have tons of well educated anglers that roam these forums!

      I'm slacking bud, I haven't done any of that yet lol. The excitement is here though, been talking to some co-workers lately about all things ice fishing. Soon enough guys!!

      My troubles are that even with the hyfax on the slides the munchkin take a little bit of a kick to get started.    My sled does not have studs and has carbides on the skis. So when I hook up to the house with the tow bar the track spins without breaking the house loose. It's like hooking it to a truck. Too much power on the sled side and no ability to transfer it to forward motion.    The 4-wheeler with chains has zero problems. Pulls it like it's not even there.

      I'd like to see this expanded to help revive our pike size and population.
