Two Baits Enter, One Bait Leaves!

I have seen and read, I know a lot of people look for an edge, but I have to take this on once and for all. Are there any Gulp champions or distributors who would like to participate in a fish-off comparison?

I will take live grubs and will go up against Gulp artificial canned baits.

I do however wish to make this fair in terms of data collection but I will need your help. I will try to use all the good suggestions, while still keeping this test where I can complete it without this test becoming too fat, or too expensive, too complex.

Post your thoughts here and I will assemble this test. Along with some local testers I will do my best to keep this as scientific as possible. This topic has been partially discussed but I want some data this Spring to show which works on bluegills best.

If you live near Chicago I would need some help filming, counting and recording this test.

  • Where can I get enough Gulp for a 5 hour fish-off?
    Berkley Reps anyone I know on the can it says Outfishes Live Bait - Care to donate?
  • I might need a volunteer as well who is free one Saturday or Sunday
  • All tackle will be supplied

I actually have a 1-man test that will work, but this will require two assistants to record fish by the quarter hour and to guide me to transition times. If we can get 4 people, I have an idea for a 2-person simultaneous  test.

Does this sound interesting? If so, add some thoughts, let me know that you can volunteer this Spring etc. Any help on getting Gulp would be appreciated ...

Interesting outcome Johnny makes you wonder how they can say it out fishes live bait. I do have a few jars around the house for the girls so they can go out back and fish, funny how when they get older the worms become nasty.

One additional thing I learned is that this bait is creepy-slimy and leaves a gooey residue behind - it is nasty to handle. Much messier than a clean pint of maggots that is for certain. Good enough for kids to use if they don't wish to bait up I guess- but the ole worm can NOT be beaten - 

This was a good analogy - "GULP ... angler's Veggie burger compared to Ground Sirloin Cooked Perfectly with all the fixings."

And it does leave a really smelly residue behind. My wife can always tell when Ive used it.

And DO NOT allow it to seep into the corners of your tackle box... dont ask me how I know this!
