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 redripper Excellent Jerk Bait! This is a great jerk bait to use for reds. If i come up on a school of reds i will already have a rod rigged with one of these babys. i like to fish this bait on a 1/4 or 1/8 ounce jig head or on a 1/8 ounce weighted weedless hook. The best colors to use are rootbeer gold and pearl white. January 4, 2008
Rated 5 out of 5 by JoJo Just as good as the gulp shrimp My 11 yo had a bag of these in new penny color(all the store had left),I had 3 inch gulp shrimp.He kept up with me with the jerk shad .I did not think he would catch any with the jerk shad but before we called it a day he had released about 20 keeper trout and kept his limit of trout, and black sea bass.I say it is as good as the Gulp shrimp .the only problem is the tails get swiped off realy fast September 23, 2007
Rated 5 out of 5 by jbramm Great i have used many saltwater lures but the Gulp jerk bait is on of the best saltwater lures i have used. Many Redfish, lots of trout and others like lady fish flounder and jacks. best of all is that they are tough lures they stay intact for many strikes and bites and even if an inch on the back is gone they still work.great lures!

Rated 5 out of 5 by fishing5 Lifetime fisherman from CA I have had great success with the sardine color. It can be flylined or used with a small weight and dragged next to kelp beds to produce solid strikes from a variety of bass and kelp rockfish. I use 10 to 15 lb. line and light tackle for the most fun action. July 20, 2006

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.
