Description

Berkley Gulp! Sinking Minnows can be fished weightless on a Texas rig or wacky style, cast to suspended fish or bass holding in cover. After the bait hits the water simply let it sink. The bait has its own action and will wiggle and shake as it falls. When the fish strikes, generally there's little doubt, reel down and set the hook. If the bait settles to the bottom give it three or four jerks using the rod tip. Then let the bait fall free again. This gives the bait the look of escaping baitfish running to the surface. Gulp! Sinking Minnows can also be rigged Carolina style.

Each package contains ten baits.

The Berkley Gulp! 5 in. Sinking Minnow is made in the U.S.A.

 the secret is out!
Pros: they are easy to work and bass react
Comments: when I find a bait that works so well for me, I dont tell too many people about it. ive bought alot of worms trying to find that one that will catch bass in any situation. alot of them look just like this bait. Theres something about this sinking minnow, just drives bass crazy! Granted... it takes some practice to learn to work this thing just right, but when you figure it out ... this thing will catch big bass any where , anytime! yeah , they dont last as long as some of the others, but they catch twice as many bass! I buy 10 bags at a time. Ive been using these for a couple years now, and caught many trophys. If you are a bass fisherman, give these sinkin minnows a chance. I bet youll be glad you did.

 bass cant resist them!
Pros: Easy To Store, Good For Variety Of Fish, Irresistible to Fish, Easy To Handle
Comments: these things just catch bass! once you get the feel down pat,fish them slow, and you wont believe the hits you get. One only lasts 2 or 3 fish but well worth it. I use these bass fishing 95% of the time.

 Never go bass fishing without it!!!!!!!!
Pros: Irresistible to Fish, Easy To Handle, Good For Variety Of Fish
Best Uses: Fresh Water
Comments: My absolute "go to" bait for shallow bassin'. Great for highly pressured fish. Rig weightless, Texas rig, or wacky rig, depending on cover. Will DEFINITELY catch fish. These baits will dry out if improperly stored, and if left in bright sun will become extremely soft and unusable. Catfish will devour these baits as well.

 Proof is in the catching !!
Pros: Easy To Handle
Best Uses: Fresh Water
Comments: I love this bait...I plug the head end with 1/2 piece of finishing nail, which makes the head shake downward, while rigged "wacky" style, weedless hook. On my last 4 trips, I was catching at a 3 to 1 ratio over my fishing buddies with this set up. Bass hit it hard, so you don't have to even think that it's a branch, grass or some other obstruction in the water. I tried to find this bait when I ran out on my last trip, but could not find it locally. I ordered on line with no problems. I can't wait to try it on my next salt water fishing trip.

Looks can be deceiving
Pros: Easy To Handle, Strong, Easy To Store, Irresistible to Fish
Best Uses: Shore Casting, Fresh Water
Comments: At first glance I didn't think the Sinking Minnow would catch weeds. Could not have been more wrong. The quantity and size of the largemouth and smallies that I've been catching is absolutely unbelievable. Best part is is that my 7 year old son is able to fish with this bait. Easiest presentation of any bait I've ever fished with. Have had most success with the plain ol' black minnow. Thanks for such a great bait!

just like they say fish do eat it
Pros: Fish Don't Escape, Good For Variety Of Fish, Easy To Handle, Looks Realistic, Irresistible to Fish
Cons: Heat makes it stiff
Best Uses: Fresh Water
Comments: This is the best bait out there I use it only for largemouth bass and this bait does not dissapoint. I give it a few twitches and fish come running behind it.This bait leaves a blood trail that is irrestible to fish.The only bad thing about this bait is that when heat gets to it it becomes stiff but if you put it back in the pack it is just like new.
