Default New Gulp

I know this was brought up in the long Gulp thread a few weeks ago, but I finally ran out of my "old" gulp and had to use some of the "new" stuff in the packages with individual sections last week. I HATE the new stuff.

I was fishing in LA and used packages I bought in AL, FL, and LA, all of them the new ones with sections in the package and they were all lousy. I understand they probably changed the formula because they lasted too long before (my record is 27 specks on one bait) but this new stuff at times does not even last for one fish because it is so soft it won't hold the hook and jig head.

I'm very disappointed and wanted to see if anyone has run across any Gulp at all in the new packages that is not total crap.

The main ones I've had problems with have been the 3" shrimp natural color

I know that many will disagree, but I think that gulp is the most overrated and over priced bait on the market. The shrimp have a little durability, but the jerkshad will last for about one fish. I love the fluke with a little pro cure dabbed on them. A package of 10 flukes cost about $3 and I can catch a lot of fish on just one. The most durable plastics are the strike king baits made with the elaztec. You can catch 30-40 fish on one bait. They are also impervious to pin fish.

All my sugar and spice glows have been in the trays and they are my favorite so far. The glow bait looks to be multi-layered internally and inconsistent in transparency, which I like in these.

That strike king rage tail shrimp is tough. It's tough to even get on the hook and one or two usually last all day. It has some nice action too that you don't get from the gulp. Where do you get your pro cure?

I get my pro-cure from Steve at Dizzy Lizzy's......he's having a big sale on Friday next week. You might be able to stock up if you beat me to 'em.

Thanks for the info. I will be out of town for Turkey Day and won't be back until Friday night. Hopefully he won't be out.

get yourself one of those turkey injector syringes and stick your softbait with procure, it will slowly drip out and leave a trail. I shoot up my DOAs all the time.

Awesome tip. Which flavor of Pro-Cure do you favor?

They have 100 scents out now, I try to match it up with what bait I'm using. They have shrimp, menhaden, crab and all kinds of stuff.
