Gulp Jerk Shad Vs. Alabama Leprechaun [VIDEO]
Gulp Jerk Shad lures have an amazing scent for redfish and black drum.
I’ve casted them into a school or even onto a flat without even seeing fish and got strikes fast!
But the biggest con is that they are not very durable.
You may get away with using one Gulp Jerk Shad per fish that you catch.
Or you may have pufferfish or pinfish tear it apart pretty quickly.
So if you find actively feeding fish and don’t want to go through a ton of lures, you may want to switch up to the Alabama Leprechaun.
I’ve caught multiple fish on just one of these lures and did not have to switch it out.
That saves a ton of time too!
You can further help avoid this lure getting torn at all by pulling the hook point out of the plastic when you rig it.
Just let the hook point sit on top of the lure instead of inside the lure.
And the Alabama Leprechaun is infused with a scent that fish cannot resist!
Here’s my go-to rigging for each lure:
- Gulp Jerk Shad: 3/0, 1/16 oz Owner Twistlock Hooks
- Alabama Leprechaun: 3/0, 1/8 oz Owner Twistlock Hooks
