Berkley® Gulp!® Minnow
I fish the 3" Berkley Gulp! Minnow in smelt color for monster bronzebacks and the 4" Berkley Gulp! Minnow in smelt and pearl for hawg mossbacks. This bait is the epitome of what a quality shad-mimmicking softbait should be. It has a perfect profle (body shape) and perfect action/softness along with Berkley Gulp!'s proven scent to keep the bass holding on long enough to get a real good hookset. The bait is so soft and feels just like the flesh of a live baitfish and the scent... well that's some stinky stuff, but it works! I have fished with other plastic baits, but the bass always seem to hold on the the Gulp! lures the longest. The softness and body design give it a nice erratic and natural look in the water whether fished on a jighead, a sworming hornet, or even a carolina rig. This bait is suprisingly good for carolina rigs because of it's buoancy, which keeps it right off the bottom. I fish the 3" smelt Minnow for river smallies, as it mimicks the shad fry in mid-late fall perfectly. Fished on a jighead or under a bobber, it is deadly on river smallies. For largemouths, fishing it on a caroline rig or a jighead is also deadly. Fish it in cover, around structure, or just in open water. This bait is also great for using on a dropshot rig in summer or fall/winter. Twitching it will often trigger monster strikes. Use fluorocarbon to get the best action out of this great lure.

an amazing bait
I started using this bait over a year ago, and have stopped buying the storms i once used. i fish for largemouth and it works great. i normally out fish anyone i go with 2 to 1. they last forever usually landing 5 or more fish before needing to be replaced. the main color i use is smelt but i have also used the black shad in both the 3 and 4 inch they work great. if there is a fish anywhere near the lure - you will catch it !

What a bait, best I have ever used
I have been fishing the New River and James Rivers in Virginia since I was 7. Now 33, I have never had one bait have such great success. Normally the Rebel tiny craw is the bait of choice. Not anymore. Today I caught 10 2+lb small mouths. My girlfriend caught 7. In total we boated almost 50 fish, many just under 2lbs. We used the smelt. I was having such success I didn't try any other colors. I did purchase the chartreuse shad and black shad that I will use next trip. I used this jigging. This bait's reviews are the truth, and yes it stinks and the fish love it!

best panfish bait out there
if you want to catch big crappie and perch all you have to do is cast this bait out and reel it in. it basicly catches the fish itsself.
