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.

      And just like that, it's open water time.... Got a few small ones today... felt good to have the long rod out again

      I catch saugers in rivers or in lakes with large river tributaries - they seem to be more of a river fish. Given there aren't big feeder rivers into V, i'm not surprised by lack of saugers. I've never caught one in V, nor have i heard of anyone.

      From the MN DNR-   The walleye is native to most of Minnesota, flourishing in large, shallow, windswept lakes with gravel shoals, such as Mille Lacs, Leech, Winnibigoshish, Upper and Lower Red Lake, Lake of the Woods and Lake Vermilion. It is also native to many smaller lakes and steams in all of Minnesota's major drainages. Because of its popularity as a game and food fish, the walleye was introduced to many other lakes, where it has become established. The walleye now occupies about 1,700 lakes totaling 2 million acres and 100 warm-water streams totaling 3,000 miles.

      I have a few different rods. The one i was originally referring to i am using for crankbaits.  i have a jig and worm rod as well. I have mastered the cast, just trying to learn more about leaders. Thanks! Do you recommend i use 17# test for my worm and jig rod?

      As far as I know walleyes are native to almost every lake that they are found in up north. Cliff
