Been catching a nice variety of fish throughout the summer! Water conditions have been good and the water bodies I have fished are in good shape. Most fish are hanging in deeper areas of the water bodies next to structure and grass beds.Rios were found in shallow water by brush piles or rocks. Docks are also holding some nice fish. Fish are in good shape and full of fight. Morning bite between sun-up and 10am is the best time to catch em. Once the heat starts setting in the bite really slows down! Most fish were caught on worms with both float and bottom techniques being used. I have also been getting good results using the Gulp Alive worms! Catching some super nice fish during the summer time. It just don't get any better! fish

You are correct about the Gulp Alive Worms. I sometimes use them along the rip-rap and cannot tell the difference between them & worms. Blue gills, crappie, cat fish, blacks, & drum will take them. Really most anything in the lake will hit them. No Rio Grande's up here, though.

question, are you just putting the gulps on a little hook or a jig head?

I also saw this video where this guy was using spoons with a gulp minnow on it...

Plasma 800. I usually bait the Gulp Worms right on the hook. I have also used jig heads and roadrunners with the Gulp Worms as trailers. Alot of Gulp Alive products can be used with jig heads or other artifical baits. thumb

Do you pinch them off about the same size as you would an earthworm?

Thanks Andrew and Red snappa for the replies! cheers Early morning fishing is hard to beat! thumb Plasma 800: I pinch them off just like I would do a live worm. Usually leave one or two inches hanging off the hook. The amount of worm will depend on several factors such as where I am fishing,bite pattern,water conditions,time of year,etc. hmmm I also use the Gulp Alive Night Crawlers! hooked

I can testify that the Gulp Alive minnow (the small 1" variety) is lethal on bluegills and redear! Heck, we fish them under a cork on #6 Aberdeen just like a worm! They are amazingly effective!

I for sure want to try those... the video I posted (might have been another thread) they put them on a tiny spoon and let them flutter.. interesting tactic I'd like to try.

Thanks Guys for the replies and comments. Friends of mine have used the Gulp Alive Minnows with very good results mainly on the Crappie and bass. thumb

Nice fish as always Chuck. Been catching some nice Crappie. Hopefully this latest rain event did not was Jeff and mines brush piles away. Drove by Mcqueeney yesterday and it is a muddy mess. Will be given it a try Thursday after noon.



Side Note: You doing any night fishing? Also have you fished the Sabinal River lately?
