Berkley's Gulp! Alive! Crickets look ALIVE, taste ALIVE and feel ALIVE--because your bait actually ''lives'' in a natural, supercharged GULP! solution! Effective in the heat of summer or through the ice in the dead of winter, Berkley's Gulp! Alive! Crickets absorb 20% more attractant, then disperse their potent scent like a blood trail in the water.

Rated 1 out of 5 by blackangus not as pictured I have bought three packs, 2 different colors, and neither have the paddle feet as pictured. Thus there is no acton when worked under clear float.. May 12, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by FallujahVet Waste of time and money So I purchased a jar of this stuff to test the claims. I also bought a basket of real ordinary crickets to compare the two. For all intensive purposes, I used two identical rigs at the same time. One using real ordinary, highly motivated crickets, and one using Berkley® Gulp! Alive!® Crickets in brown (natural) color. I lowered a Berkley® Gulp! Alive!® Cricket into the water first, with much anticipation.....NOTHING! The fish ignored it! So, for testing, I left the line in the water right where it was, put the rod in a rod holder, and using my other rig, lowered a Real living cricket into the water right next to the Berkley® Gulp! Alive!® Cricket. FISH ON! I caught a bluegill almost instantly on the real thing! I repeated this until I was out of REAL LIVING crickets, while not even having a "tug" on the jarred junk! SUMMARY: DON'T BUY! Real crickets are cheaper, and actually catch fish! May 7, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Chockpish1 Late summer Brookies! I love these for Brooke trout late in the season! When the crickets are, I use the brown color, I use them on a slip bobber rig. I let them go with the current next to the banks and if a hungry trout is lurking around, most of the time they go for it! The old saying, match the hatch, is correct! and these work great for me!

Rated 4 out of 5 by sierrafishing Gulp! crickets Although I am not very impressed with the appearance of these I have caught fish with them. The hind legs are really small compared to the real thing and they are really thin, almost like they have been smashed. Several of them have extra material hanging off from when they were molded too. They do look "buggy" though and I have caught fish with them. They are also durable as I have caught several fish on one bait before switching. I can't compare these to real crickets yet as I have never fished with the real thing. Overall they're alright and seem like they would be easier to use than the real thing. August 18, 2012

A:It depends on how you rig it but for me I've gone 8 fish in a row without having to replace the cricket. It does get torn up but just hook it thru in a different spot, its just as good.
Then again I've had unlucky days where the fish manage to take the cricket and throw the hook after only a couple
Details:this product looks very lifelike
i think this would be a good panfish and small largemouth and smallmouth bait
which months would you recommend using this bait? i hear late summer early fall is better for crickets
i was planning on using a light setup 5 foot 6 light rod and pfleuger gx7 reel with 4 -8 lb line
opinions,add anything you would like?
A:You just can't beat a real cricket for panfish, I've never caught a smallmouth on one though. Crawfish baits and small quarter ounce in line spinners are the heat for smallmouth.

A:I've only used this in spring and it was a complete success. I usually use them on the exact rods you're speaking of. Both my 5ft ultralight and 7ft light pfleuger rods work well for this. I use 4 or 6lb line. I'm going to try it for fall and see how it works
