Berkley's Gulp!® baits are a substantial improvement over plastic bait technology. To attract fish and get them to feed, you have to appeal to their senses of smell and taste, technically known as chemoreceptors. Berkley has effectively bridged the gap between live and articificial baits with the Gulp!® baits. Gulp!® baits are very similar in texture and chemical potency to live bait, but have all the shape, action, and color advantages of soft plastics. Gulp!® actually releases 400 times faster than equivalent plastic baits with a scent trail so intense fish sense it from much farther away, and it is 100% biodegradable.

Berkley's Gulp! Suspended Minnow is a subtle bait that’s big on flavor designed for targeting suspended fish or fish holding in vertical cover. The Suspended Minnow's lifelike, fluttering fall makes any vertical presentation around weedlines, wood, docks and dams absolutely deadly.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 46 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by The safest purchase you'll ever make! The gulp sinking minnow has to be one of the best baits ever made. Whether dragging on top of a weedbed, walking the dog two feet below the surface or twitching on the bottom this thing catches fish time in and time out. Buy some Gamakatsu rigging hooks to boot and you're all set for success. I've barely used anything else in my tackle box over the last two years, it's that reliable. February 25, 2007
Rated 5 out of 5 by A must have These are deadly wacky rigged or weightless. I have caught many Bass using these. My favorite color is watermelon. They are heavy and cast really well! April 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Find yourself in HOG HEAVEN! Berkley’s Gulp! Sinking Minnow has become my favorite go-to soft bait since I first rigged one up a few months ago. I caught a 9 lb. largemouth on my 3rd cast to the edge of a weed bed followed by a 6 and a 7 lb-er shortly after. I haven’t used much of any other bait since as it continues to produce fantastic results for these summer lunkers. The Sinking Minnow is DEADLY in dense weeds or lily pads. About 75% of my hits have occurred while it’s sinking. These bucket mouths cannot resist its side-to-side action while it flutters to the bottom! So whether you’re dragging it across the top of the lilies or the bait has just broken the surface, give it time to sink and hang on for the ride! I’ve also had a lot of success jerking it over the top of submerged weeds, letting the bait dart back and forth franticly between pauses like a hopeless little injured victim. Berkley has done a great job with this one! The Sinking Minnow has great action no matter how it is retrieved. The only thing I do not absolutely love about this bait is it’s durability, or lack thereof. These things get shredded to bits after a good battle with a hog in the weeds, but hey, I can’t really complain about that! I’d like to see a 7” or larger version. I can’t wait to get home and put this thing to work again tonight! August 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Buy it! These are probably the worst smelling baits on the planet but they sure do work! I find that texas rigging them and running them along the bottom works wonders. Go ahead and try them! June 17, 2013

Anybody try one offshore?

Details: 
I wonder if this would work well offshore for Red Snapper and similar fish? You'd need to drop it in fairly deep water, but I guess it would flutter all the way down.

Tried it surf casting a few times. Didn't have tons of success but there were a lot of variables that could have contributed to the lack of success.

A: 
I have caught stripers on this lure by rigging it texas style and working it like a jerkbait/fluke. Slug-Gos are a mainstay of New England striper fishing and I thought this would be at least as effective.

I have never gone after snapper or offshore gamefish with this bait and I imagine detecting a strike on a slack line drop would be difficult to detect with a lot of line out. Some people are experimenting with beefed up saltwater dropshot rigs and this bait would be amazing wacky rigged above the bottom.

I think the white version of this bait would be a great trailer for a jig or bucktail.

I hope this helps

A: 
rather than worrying about them toughening up the head (and waiting for them to), rig the lure on a small jighead with a flat back, cut the head of the lure to match that flat back and then after rigging the lure on the hook add a drop of superglue to hold the lure on. I recommend the Northland Fishing Tackle Mimic Minnow jighead. Try to use the lightest weight that will work with the size lure you're using.

A: 
Try a little bit of hair gel on the head of the bait. The only problem is that you have to redo it every few casts.
