I've used mostly the saltwater assassin and zoom soft plastics and am curious about the added effect of the scent. Seems like that would help more with Redfish, which seem to have a more pronounced sense of smell. Those of you who use the Gulps, do you find that they lose their scent after a while? Do you change the plastic more often to keep a fresh scent on it?

I like the jerk shade in camo. They tend to tear before they loose the scent. Excellent bait. I catch far more fish than my partner that will not use them.

Yeah, they work pretty well. I use them on 1/8 or (more often) 1/4 oz jig heads (I think I have been using Strike King lately).

I don't like the gulp jerk shads because if I used them for a full morning of fishing on an average bite I would go through at least 3 packs of them. That's about $20 worth of bait. If you want scent then buy a bottle of pro cure and put it on the flukes. I ordered a 16 ounce bottle of pro-cure last September and the bottle is still half full. You can also add the pro-cure to spoons and hard baits like mirrolures and rattle traps.

True, the downside of Gulps is the price and their durability.

I agree on the price and durability being on the downside, but I do use them now and then although alternatives are used the majority of the time. I have found locally made baits sold at Copeland's on hwy 331 are almost as good and a lot cheaper.

Yep, I'm a believer in gulp shrimp. I use 3 & 4-inch New Penny and Pearl on different size jig heads depending on the current.
