Here’s a question we got asked recently:

Can you keep Gulp shrimp rigged on a jig head in Gulp juice?

That’s a great question, as pre-rigging them can save you time, and if you already have a Gulp shrimp rigged, you’d rather leave it on the hook because taking them off of the jig head can ruin them.

So, what’s the answer?

I’ve done this many times both for the short term and the long term and in this video, you’ll learn when it’s ok to do it, and when it’s not ok.

Watch the video below for the full answer!

If you don’t want your hooks to rust, I would advise not keeping a Gulp lure rigged on a jig head in Gulp juice for longer than two or three hours.

I’ve made that mistake before, and I won’t make it again.

Have you had the same experience?

I have found that if you get some gulp in resealable packaging you can transfer them to the bucket and use the bag to store rigged baits day over day without rust, you can reseal the bag up to your line keeping the bait hydrated without pinching your line, been doing it for weeks now without rust.

I keep gulp products dipped into juice than put in a small zip lock bag ,rigged and connected to a rod, in the shade , or with a rag, to keep the sun from baking the gulp, I have done this many times overnight , and everything is ready in the morning

Thanks for the heads up, Luke. I’d be upset if my hook was all rusty.
Similarly, I’ve wondered if salt-impregnated soft plastics can negatively affect hooks too. I usually leave my weighted hooks or jigheads in my Z-Man lures for many days in between trips. I know at least some of those have salt added. I haven’t seen any discoloration or rust yet, but I’ve still wondered about it.

Great idea though. I bet some foam-bodied flies could soak up some juice and would help.

Yeah, I agree that washing should help limit corrosion. During my kayak trips over the past couple of months, I’ve been storing used lures in a small waterproof Plano box so I can add fresh water to it while I keep fishing. I used to just leave lures in one of my cupholders, until I flipped my yak and I lost a few. My waterproof containers floated, so if it ever happens again, I’ll limit my losses more. Coincidentally, the night before the trip where I flipped (for the first time), I re-watched the video you made about flipping and righting a kayak, and it definitely helped me. So, thanks for that too haha.
