Depends on the type of fishing you are doing. Sometimes a jighead and other times a 3/0 wide gap worm hook.



I do have the FishBite shrimp in stock and by the feedback that I am getting from my customers they work as well if not better than the gulp. They definitely are tougher and do not tear up as easily.

Thanks for the help. I was fishing a 3/0 worm hook the the other day but it was not a wide thus I had missed a few hook sets. I also seem to have trouble keeping Gulps on regular ole jig head style hooks..any thougts?

Are they any cheaper than the gulps? Those gulps definitely tear up too easily. Pinfish can destroy a shrimp in about 3 casts if they're getting on it good.

They are the same price as the gulps, and don't lose their juice in the bag.

Just an ol' plain rootbeer shrimp tail with a 1/8 oz. D.O.A Cal jighead.The strike king jig heads are great if you can find them.

The best way to get the Gulp! to stay on the hook is touse some sort of a twist lock hook. Owner makes the best one pictured below. I would definitely use this hook when rigging a Gulp! Jerk shad. You can find itin mostof your local tackle stores. Owner has them in the weighted and the non-wieghted. Great Hooks!

Here is what I prefer. The small spring threads into the Gulp lure and keeps it in place. I have been using them for about 2 years now and quit using anything else.

The 1/8 oz. twist lock jig heads are the only ones i use . I can fish one gulpthe entire trip and catch multiple fish without the gulp sliding down the hook.Not bad when you consider that each gulp costs you about a dollar each. academy sells a brand called hogies that are cheaper than the bass assasin and i like better. they have a black nickle hook that is very strong and super sharp.
