I was just given three types of gulp by a friend. He doesn't fish but said he thought of me when he saw them on sale in some store. He gave me the minnow grub (white), nightcrawler, and the chicken liver. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I'm planning on going out in a couple of weeks.

Fish 'em just like you do live bait.(hook and sinker-bobber optional) The nightcrawler baits work very well for mountain trout. Even used it to catch catfish.

Thanks

I thought so. Wasn't sure about the minnow grubs. Thought I needed to use a jig head with it.

alright

never used weighted hooks before. Have to look into them.

What is the best type of hook for this? Brand, size, etc.

Most brands make a weighted hook now. Here's a sample:Mustad Fin-A'cky Weighted Black Nickel Hook

Like a jighead, use one just heavy enough to get you to the bottom but not so heavy that it drags the bottom.

I like jig heads for paddle tail minnows, jerk baits and curly tail minnows. I prefer the weighted hooks for softbaits like shrimp and worms.

Hope this helps, sorry for the delay in answering. I was on a cruise ship and swore off the internet for the entire cruise (read: too cheap to pay 60 cents a minute).

Fully understand. Thanks for the info. I truly do appreciate it. One more question for you. How do you suggest retrieving the jig headed minnow and the hook weighted worms? Thanks.

Coach D---- Try a variety of retrieves.Fast- slow- twitch-stop and go, bump bottom,etc. Stick with what works at location. I note a friend gave you the Gulp, now that's a good friend. That stuff is so expensive I store it in the bank safe deposit box when I'm not fishing with it.:D

Threw the mortgage out of the fireproof box at the house and put the Gulp in there instead. More important. :D

Just store them in the bag they came in, they have one of those zip lock closures on each bag. Once a Gulp! has been in the water, never put it back in with unused baits though.

Some folks (me included) save the used ones in an old gulp bag with the juice, then melt them together and use them for tipping bucktails.
