Gulp Lures

Posted on November 26th, 2012 by The Bloke

I’m not usually a big fan of fishing lures, but I do like to keep a packet of “Gulp” handy in my tackle box. These are a soft plastic lure that’s impregnated with a fish scent. They look quite realistic.

A quick word of advice, mind you – although Gulp lures come in a resealable zip-lock bag, I’ve found that they still dry out easily. Once they’ve dried out, it doesn’t seem to matter how long you soak them in water, they will be solid as wood and you won’t be able to get a hook through them. In future I’ll be buying a few smaller packets to have on hand.

I can still unhesitatingly recommend keeping a pack of Gulp lures handy because they are the next best thing to real bait – and if you’re anything like me, you never know what time of day or night or how far from civilisation you might find yourself the next time you get the urge to cast a line in.
