Berkley Gulp! Alive!
Minnow - 1" (Jarred)

Berkley Gulp! Alive! is the next generation in Gulp! technology. Now your favorite baits come floating in the "Magic Gravy." This enables you to recharge your baits by putting them back in the jar. The new Gulp! Alive baits absorb 20% more Gulp! scent and attractant which makes them at least 20% more effective than the 1st generation baits. They also have a 34% better swimming action than original Gulp! More attractant, better action, better results than ever before!

Gulp! Alive! 1" Minnows are the perfect for tipping jigs for bluegill, crappie and perch as well as trout. These baits are also great for adding scent and attraction to lures and jigs when ice fishing.

Berkley Gulp! Alive! 1" Minnows come in a 2.1 oz. (net wt.) resealable jar. This bait is available in the colors shown in the table below.

I have been using the 1" minnow for about 3 years now. The crappie & big gills just eat this thing up. Have been using natural colors and decided to try the chartreuse shad this year. Wow. They seem to like it better than the others, particularly in stained water. It gets chewed up pretty good but I can usually get a dozen fish off one bait.

Been using these for 3 years and still amazed at how well they work. I have caught hundreds of crappie, and several large bass, perch and bluegills. Just yesterday I caught over 80 crappies and 2 bass in 2 1/2 hours. I use every color and have found that when the bites start to slow down I just change colors and the action picks back up. I've saved a lot of money because I no longer purchase minnows.

About Me:

Used for ice fishing. When the jig & wax-worm bite slowed down I would switch to a jig & gulp minnow to get the bite started again. Sometimes would catch larger crappie on gulp. Very durable without the concerns of having to take care of live bait. I still prefer live bait but gulp is a must have when I go ice fishing. More luck with minnow type colors. Also have caught bass & channel cat on the gulp minnow.
Pros: Good live bait alternative, No worries of maintenence, Durable, Easy to use
Cons: None

Works better than live minnows! I've caught more fish with these baits than I can count. Blue gills, white perch, crappy, bass, catfish and more. With a 1/64 or a 1/80 micro jig head they can't be beat.
Pros: they catch fish
Cons: none
Best Uses: perch, and any thing esle that bites, Ultra light fishing for crappy, blue gills
Fabulous Bait

About Me:

These baits are fabulous. They work for trout and panfish but you need to use a small jig hook and I fish them with a small strike indicator (bobbers are not pc anymore). The chartreuse color seems to be the best for me, but the emerald shiner color is good also.
Pros: durable, The juice is probably the secret
Cons: jars leak after opened
Best Uses: trout and panfish

Another great Gulp product from Berkley. I have used these minnows in ponds and lakes and bluegill love them. Rigged with a float and micro jig it simply is better than live bait. Works just as good as live bait plus, unlike live bait, you get multiple fish per bait up. Also have caught stream trout and steelhead on the minnows. White is my favorite color.

Black Crappie Bait
Verified

Harwinton, CT
About Me:
Avid Fisher
This is one of the best Black Crappie baits I've ever used. I've only used it ice fishing (jigging). But I will definely be trying it this spring. Put it on a 1/32 or 1/16 oz jig head. I usually start off light and work up. Most of the time they hit it on the fall. To recharge leave it on the jig head and put it back in the bottle. I usually have 3 or 4 soaking in the bottle to switch with. One draw back is the smell on your hands and sometimes the bottle leaks.

About Me:
Avid Fisher
I enjoy fishing for bass, bluegill, catfish, pike, walleye, and crappie during travels from Kentucky to Texas and into Canada. I favor live baits. The trouble with them is getting good ones when you need them and keeping them alive. These baits solve all that, store them in a compact, easily transported container and they are cheaper than live bait while producing nearly as effectively. Anything I lose by substituting the artificial bait for the live is more than made up for by using the convenience of Gulp. I am definitely continuing to use this product and dropping the live baits.

About Me:

A friend bought these in smelt color and did well with them catching perch through the ice. Come ice out he was catching crappie with them on an ice fishing jig under a stick bobber. I tried them hand had similar success. I fished them the same way for crappie and sometimes added a spike for a bit of extra attraction. We had great crappie fishing with them and also caught plenty of perch and big blue gills. What I like most about them is that fish eat them and they stay on the hook much longer than any live bait. The down side is that they harden on the hook when they dry. Take them off as soon as your done fishing or you will have trouble removing them later.I like this color so much I'm trying it in the 3 inch for larger game fish.

I used the 1" Gulp minnow on a #12 gold aberdeen hook as a drop shot rig. I used the Gulp minnow as the main hook and a Marmooska with just the tail of a 1" Gulp fry. The Gulp minnow produced both Bluegills and Crappie. You won't believe how real these look. Smelt color looks just like a Perch/Speck minnow. I kept 18 fish that day and well over 1/2 came on the minnow.

I recently used these for crappie fishing. I could not believe how the fish tore up these things. Not only did I catch crappie, but tons of bluegill, perch and bass, too. I now have every color and dumped all jars into a waterproof, tupperware-type of container. No need to buy minnows anymore!!
