Berkley® Gulp!® Saltwater Baits
It’s a fact—fishing artificial lures can be problematic. What works well for one species may have little attracting power on another. 100% biodegradable Berkley® Gulp®! Saltwater baits are designed to bridge the gap between artificial and live bait, giving saltwater anglers a better option for catching multiple inshore species. That’s because they release 400 times more scent than plastic baits, drawing interest from just about everything that
swims. The Gulp! storage solution permeates the entire body of the bait: not only does the lure leave an irresistible scent trail, but it tastes real through and through to the fish. They also last longer than live bait, and in head-to-head field tests, they even outfished it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ozarker Glup jerk shad This is my "Go To Bait", I fish with lots of other plastic hoping to find another as effective as the jerk shad, but when push comes to shove I always fall back to the jerk shad. January 24, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by DohDohDood Pretty impressive Where's the fresh bait!!!!?? Tired of using frozen bunker, mullet... whatever else to bring in them Delaware stripers. Gave the shad a go and was impressed by the attention it got. used it as a teaser on a bucktail jig. 23 and 26" in 4 hours. November 29, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by ichanic AMAZING RESULTS!!! I saw the reviews for this and decided to give it a try for a fishing trip to Tobago (Caribbean) I caught a variety of fish with this bait.... Barracuda/Snapper/Trevally everything was loving it! I would cast and not know what to expect on the other end of the line once I got a bite. You have to try it! The only problems I found was the tail would get bitten off quite a bit, but that is expected with saltwater fish and the last thing was if you try to re-hook the bait a few times (more than 4), the fish would break and could no longer be used. Again this is something that is expected when using a soft bait. November 28, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by HavanaTrader The go-to bait when everything else is failing Something about the action of this slender bait just drives trout crazy! The Jerk Shad shape seems just perfect. When everything else in the arsenal is being ignored, this slim, wiggling wonder draws strikes like a fish magnet. I use white or glow when light is low or the water is murky, nuclear chicken or new penny when light is better or water clearer. (Nuclear Chicken seems to be irresistible to sea trout) The only drawback is that since it is so slender, the tail doesn't last long. Once the tail is gone, strikes drop off considerably.

Details:I'm fishing for inshore reds, trout, and flounder and I'm wondering what is the better bait.
A:Much better. The difference is in the scent. Gulp baits will out-fish any unscented lures.
DOA makes some great lures, but I'd recommend using scent/attractant on them.
A:Absolutely. Try the saltwater green and white.
A:These are good for trout and flounder.
A:D.O.A has nothing on GULP
A:Both are good baits, but he jerkshad is more versatile. You can rig is weedless on worm hook or fish it on a jig head and still cast it long distance. The 6" and 7" catch big fish. DOA is a good bait but typically used for the smaller trout are here. For reds it does not matter much, he is going to eat anything you get in front of him.
A:WITHOUT A DOUBT, THIS IS BETTER THAN DOA, ZOOM, BASS ASSASSIN, POWERBAIT....None of them come even close, when it comes to producing fish!

A:thanks. im fishing very stained water (galveston)
A:The gulp shrimp are excellent when worked on a 1/8oz jighead. the shads are great lures too, but in the long run they all dry up and become unuseable. if the water is cystal clear, there is no difference between gulps and doas. however, if you're fishing deep, stained water then the gulps tend to be more productive.
