We went fishing this weekend in Corpus and I spent approximately 5 hours throwing paddle tails of various colors along with a few Paul Brown lures and got a few bites. I switched to a Gulp! shrimp and started getting more bites the very first cast and landed more fish.

The Gulp! was in a color combo I hadn't thrown, could that be the difference or was it the oil the lures come in, or do fish just like them more?

Thanks

Go for it. I don't think it's a magic bullet, but it might work sometimes when other things struggle. Fish bite things for their own reasons. I never thought gulp had the greatest action due to the shape and material, but Berkeley made new shapes.

You should try gulp for several or many trips to confirm or deny it is better. Nothing but gulp. I've done it with topwaters, paddle tails, and flies. Commit to one thing, good or bad results, trip in and trip out. See what happens.

When fish aren't hungry -- Gulp is better.

Last summer we were throwing some croaker on a slow - and I do mean slow - trout bite at a deep shell reef in CC Bay.

My cuz had a Pearl 3" Gulp! so I put one a on a Glow Rockport Rattler 1/4 oz. jig and had 5 keeper trout in 8 casts. Rigged the kids up with some and they caught some trout as well.

Started using them on my wade fish trips ( I put some juice and the Gulp! shrimp in an empty vitamin bottle in my shirt pocket for easy access and no Gulp juice leaking on my shirt ) and caught a 18" trout when I wasn't fishing and was just getting a wind knot off the end of my fishin' pole.

yeah .. they work.

So, uh, what color were you using? Maybe it was that instead of the gulp.

I used two opposite colors and still had success with Gulp!

Have you tried the 4" Gulp Alive Shrimp in the New Penny color?
