Gulp Alive For Bass Fishing
When trying to land the trophy or fill the
cooler, everyone out there has at one time or another used a swim bait. Well, Berkley
came out with the New Hot Plastic bait that works for Crappie, Bass, Catfish, Stripers,
It is called Gulp
Alive! and comes in a
small Jar or Bucket. The great partabout this new minnow is anyone that has used gulp before the minnow knows
thatafter you introduce it to the
water it can not be placed back in the package.
The minnows are different; they can go back in, and it will not
harm the other baits.
However if left out of the water for a period of
time, they will dry up and shrink like the other Gulp worms and sinking minnows. I know if you will refer to earlier articles
that I have written you will see
a rig that you can use the minnows on. I will give you one: That if you try this on a drop shot rig, you will get
results real fast.
I was introduced to them about two years ago at a
show in Arkansas where Berkley had a tank of bass for the exbitors to show product in the tank. I was working
with MoJo Weights at the time and
asked Berkley if they would try our rig with the new minnow.
It turned out when the bass in the tank would not
hit any other lure they would
kill the minnow. Here again, the bait is made up of ground up bait so if you lose one, it will not affect the fish and they can digest
If you're interested in trying out Berkley's
Alive!, what I call Minnow in a Bucket, use the Bass Pro Shops Gulp Alive link to purchase the bait
on-line to save time and gas.
If you still have problems locating them, write
to me and I will help you get them.
I know it might be too late for you to go after
Crappie. However, if you have read some of my articles, I tell you to move with the crappie and bass off the spawning beds
and move toward the deep
May and June are the best Top Water Bait times.
The fish are still very active
and if you will place the boat in 16-20 feet of water and cast shallow, the fish should be right under the surface looking for
a easy meal. Look at all the time
and how much work they did spawning and are very hungry.
A lot of us down South have had to put up with
all the lakes having too much water that Crappie Spawning is or should be over and the Bass are spawning as I type.
If the Crappie in your area are
just now spawning, try some of the Berkley Gulp Alive Minnows.
You will not go wrong and might even have some
pictures that you want to share
with other fishing folks. Send them in and we will try to get them up on the web site.
Keep The Hooks Wet!
