How To Use Gulp Shrimp [Review & Underwater Footage]


How To Use Gulp Shrimp

A popular inshore lure is the Berkley Gulp Shrimp.

This is a scented soft plastic lure that imitates a shrimp. It is effective for targeting species such as redfish, trout, snook, snapper and many more.

These Gulp Shrimp baits can be rigged on a variety of jig heads as well as many different hooks depending on the areas that they’ll be used in.

In this post, I show you how to use Gulp Shrimp and give you my top pros and cons for this lure.

Best of all, you’ll see a tutorial video that shows the rod tip movements that can help increase strikes along with underwater footage showing exactly what the lure looks like as the rod tips make the lure look like a scared shrimp.

When you say gulp, do you mean regular gulp or gulp alive?

You can see a snorkel tube around 6:30 – lol. Awesome video, it’s really helpful to see this technique in action. Thanks Luke!

Thanks Luke. Watching your demo in the pool I noticed that I could plainly see your line in the water but not the leader. Is the leader fluorocarbon? How long? What pound test?

IT WORKED::: My confidence is boosted. I had no live bait, so I didn’t feel confident .But then I went to this good low tide area with tons of oysterbeds and current incoming, using white gulp shrimp with chartuese tail 3 inch. I got a bite on my first cast, then I proceeded to catch 4 redfish and 6 trout atl too small

Hi guys, just wanted to say thanks for keeping this tutorials coming. I just got back from a 6 day trip to Bulls Bay, SC to fish for redfish and trout. Used the advice and tactics from your Red Fish course to land 8-10 redfish each time out including three 32″+ fish over the course of the week. No doubt that your course was a huge factor in helping me locate fish and feel confident about lures and presentation. You guys rock!

Do Gulp! Saltwater soft plastics attract ? Yes, they do, perhaps as well, if not better than, Pro-Cure. Do Gulp! Saltwater soft plastics catch fish? Yes, they do. With that said, the only reason I continue to use Gulp! (albeit infrequently) is because they’re paid for and I’m too cheap to throw away my remaining supply.

Where I typically fish Blue Crab are plentiful: they LOVE Gulp! – and destroy them. There’s also catfish, which seemingly can’t resist Gulp!
When pinfish are present they’ll feast on Gulp! Never thought Gulp! to be durable, however, over time (newly-purchased right out of the bag) they seem even less durable. In the Florida heat and sun, Gulp! on the hook out of the water dries up in a very short period of time.

After experimentation I’ve embraced a brand other than Gulp! to be my “go-to” for soft-plastics. More durable (= less expensive), less damage/harassment from “undesirables”, no less/no more trouble to rig – and catch fish to my satisfaction (as well as when I used Gulp!).
