Default gulp clams

ok me and my buddy were fighting over saltwater lures and whats better than what etc.......


berkley gulp clams came to the table and i tried using a pack of them last year and got skunked. i think they're to hard, unrealistic and just out right suck. where as the guys fishin a little ways away were catchin on clams which were just left overs from the night before. no stripers were caught all skates but still. my gulp wasn't worthy of skate. i wanted your guys opinion on all this.

I've never used the Gulp clams. That said, do not discount any bait just because you used it once and got skunked. Also, a skate won't eat anything I catch bass on either

You can discount the Gulp clams
The rest of the Gulp family are great but the clams are a dud.

I do very well with the "new penny" color shrimp, and Swimming Mullet. For flounder, croaker, etc.
I would never use gulp to catch a Striper though.. IMO
Live or fresh only for me..

Jakbass, doesn't it say "not for human consumption" on the back of the package?

It does, my comment was a joke. I always laugh when I read that on the package.

I love reading that and:





My whole life growing up in Taxachusetts I saw that label on any fishing product I bought and ignored it. Now that I'm stationed in California I get a little nervous every time I buy a fishing product...

haha thanks guys. i do feel gulp is godly in other ways. i'm going to try the eels this year for the stripers in the fall.

Mrxracing also try the new penny, i've had awesome luck with them for weakies and fluke.

Hope to see you guys soon any for what it's worth. i see people making fun of zim for saying tight lines and i was reading the FISHERMAN the other day and in 2 articles they finished off with tight lines so i thought it was kinda funny.

yes I also tried the clams and got no hits. I actually did better with the fish bites.
