Gulp Shrimp: Are You Rigging Them Upside Down By Accident?


It’s Gulp Shrimp Time (again…)

Earlier this week, Tony posted a video about the top 3 ways to rig a Gulp Shrimp (you can see it here).

The video received a ton of shares and engagement, but one comment kept coming up over and over again both on our blog, Facebook, and YouTube…

“Hey Tony, you’re rigging the Gulp shrimp upside down…”

So we decided to do a follow-up video to get everyone straight on the correct way to rig.

what is the best place to buy gulp shrimp in the 2″ size?

It doesn’t freaking matter! Put a good bait in front of fish’s nose and they’ll eat it. The hard part is locating the fish!

Have you ever used these gulp shrimp under a popping cork like you would with live shrimp?

I have and have had good luck in the summer for trout and mackerel. Usually white with a chartreuse tail. I know a couple of guides that also use that rig here on the west coast of Florida, Big Bend.

I have used various colors on a jig head, under a popping cork, with a 18
to 24 inch leader. Caught trout, red fish, lady fish, jacks, etc., in the Marco Island, Goodland area.

Thanks for the clarification. I have wondered about the color scheme of the new penny Gulp, but I would always rig the shrimp so the jig or weedless rig runs upright.

Hi Tony. Thank you for the clarification. I would have rigged it incorrectly without your advice. It is these little finesse points that can makethedifference.

Usually takes me a few tries to get it straight. You make it look easy!

We went out of Holden Beach NC last week, nothing hit our new penny shrimp, we had them upside down. We caught several small trout on the gulp white mullet though. Thanks for the tip Tony, we’re still learning. Joining Salt Strong was a good decision for sure, I can’t thank you guys enough for all the information. We tried the “artificial only” route back in November for the first time with great success! Can’t wait to get back on the water!

I rig a lot of gulp shrimp with a Carolina rig for flounder. Works really well.
