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.

      What's your fish of choice to pursue? A weekday fish you could find after work are crappies, the basin bite on your local lake/lakes could make for a fun night bite. Panfish in general are fun to chase anytime, northerns are fun to target too but that's more of a weekend thing until we start gaining more daylight. Walleyes are punks to me and I've never been patient enough to target them unless I'm on LOW or Upper Red lol.

      How do you even get on this lake to ice fish?  Seems to be surrounded by Private land.

      Well Friday was a little slow picked up some nice gills here and there no crappies. Sat morning picked up a couple 10 inch gills and a couple more for the bucket here and there. Sat night 930 the crappies came through I caught 17 biggest was 12. Sunday picked a few more gills up for the bucket before heading off to a different lake for walleye. again fish wanted nothing to do with minnows only caught one with them. All other fish caught on a tungsten orange and green glow tipped with only a wax worm.   we were in 12 fow the sunfish were 2 off the bottom crappie cruising 4 off bottom Side note tried walleye tonight missed 3 of them! Now I remember why I don't walleye fish much stupid things

      I had the showdown as a hole hopping sonar but found I used my LX5 a lot more.  I went to the 7 and did not like it because it was bulky and hard to get used to both hopping holes and room inside one man Frabile.  Sold the 7 and bought another LX5 and do not see me going back to any other.  I have a wheel house and found is the only time I used the 7.  If you do a lot of fishing outside and like to move around.  I would stick with the 5, I now own two of them and don't see me using anything else.
