What's next? Berkley's new product GULP. For years, Berkley scientists have been working to isolate the natural chemical compounds that tell fish, " THIS IS FOOD " and stimulate them to feed. The challenge then is to reproduce those scent and flavor compounds in an artificial bait which fish believe is actual prey, and thus attracts more fish and prompts them to bite.

These goals were realized in the early 1980's with the introduction of the highly successful line of Power Bait products. Now, after nearly two decades of further testing and refinement, Berkley has developed a much more powerful scent formula, combined with an all-natural compound that fish perceive as food in every sense. NEW BERKLEY GULP!!!

GULP! looks, swims, smells,feels, and tastes more natural to game fish than any plastic bait ever could.... In fact, it's so close to the real thing, fish actually EAT IT!!! It's even 100% biodgradable, so no harm done to the fish, or the ecosystem.
You fish GULP!! using the same techniques you've used with plastic and live baits. Same rigs. Same techniques. And GULP! is more durable than live bait. Lasts longer NEVER DIES!. You just catch more fish. SCIENCE IS GOOD..

h2o<-----------says excellent break-through!!!!! and remember fish smell a million times better than humans.

I tested this new product last spring while taping an Outdoor World TV show ( It will air this coming spring!) We used the crawler version Jigging for Walleye's in the river and trolling in Erie with harness's. We had awesome success with both patterns using the GULP! In fact the GULP depth with the same color! The difference was 11 fish without changing the GULP bait vs. a new live crawler after each fish!

The only draw back, in my opinion, is it dries out like pork! IF you do not seal the package or leave it on a hook out of the water it will harden and deform!

We (Dad and I) used it a bit this year ....have to say it caught it's share of walleye while trolling w/ crawler harnesses. Trolling 4 lines (one w/ a Gulp, 3 with crawlers), sometimes it was the only one that got a hit or fish in a certain area.

They feel different than regular plastics, kinda like a gelatin/plastic combo, and I would say they smell pretty bad from a human point of view.... Agree on the drying issue, need to make sure they are kept sealed in the plastic.
