New Gulp! Shrimp Translucent Lures [VIDEO]
Gulp! has introduced new translucent shrimp lures that are 3-inches in length and come in a few different colors.
In the big scheme of things, color doesn’t matter nearly as much as presentation.
Imitation Shrimp Presentations
Shrimp do not want to be found.
They are not a threatening prey and aim to blend into the environment around them.
The difference between a translucent shrimp lure and a lure that is solid in color is that the translucent lures will blend a lot better into the environment than solid lures.
In situations of tannic water or if you are close to freshwater run-off, the translucent shrimp lures will work well because the redfish or other species will have to hone in and hunt for their prey.
This applies especially to the fall heading into the winter because redfish are pushed up against mangroves or shoreline and they are stalking shrimp in the shallows.
Redfish aren’t looking for something that sticks out to them but something that is blending into their environment.
Some days redfish are willing to strike any lure, however, other days it is a bit harder to trigger strikes.
If you can use a translucent shrimp lure that allows light to pass through its body, it can blend into the surroundings more and pique the curiosity of a redfish to investigate.
Swimming A Gulp! Shrimp
Personal preference comes into play but using a jighead is best with Gulp! shrimp.
This lets you stay closer to the bottom for a longer period of time.
On the other hand, with an Owner Weighted Twistlock Hook, your lure is suspended and doesn’t sink down to the bottom quickly.
If you aren’t fishing near heavy structure or oyster beds, a jighead will work best because it keeps the lure down towards the bottom.
By popping your rod up quickly with your lure in the mud, the shrimp will jump out of the mud and catch the attention of redfish.
Redfish will be forced to investigate if there is a disturbance or a puff of sand that is churned up by your lure popping up.
Gulp! smell also allows redfish to pick up on your lure and strike.
You aren’t concerned with reeling these lures in very fast.
You want to pop it out of the mud and stay in the strike zone as long as possible.
This lure will work best in clear water or slightly stained water.
Moreover, the Gulp! translucent shrimp lure is a valuable sight fishing tool.
If you are fishing in dirtier water, then you should choose a lure that is solid in color.
Gulp! translucent shrimp look and act similarly to live shrimp in clear water or stained water scenarios.
Redfish have no choice but to investigate when you pop this lure out of the mud creating a small cloud of sand along with the powerful Gulp! scent.
