Add a Little Gulp to Plastics
By John Campbell

Plastic baits are productive year 'round but I really like them during warm weather. When the water is warm, fish are frequently more willing to chase a bait. Plastic bait can be moved quickly, so more water can be covered. The more water you cover, the more walleyes you'll have the opportunity to catch. A jig heavier than normal is required to move the bait along at a quick pace. Quarter and three-eighths ounce heads are the sizes I use the most with plastics in warm weather, but eighth ounce heads are used in a variety of circumstances also. Walleyes will frequently spread out over shallow flats or on points. When they do so, try front trolling at a fairly quick clip. Tie on a jig and plastic trailer heavy enough to stay near the bottom as the boat moves along. As the trolling pass is made, sweep the rod so the bait jumps, then falls back to the bottom. A 6'6" Shimano medium heavy action spinning rod with Stren Original Clear Blue in eight to ten pound test will be about right. Plastic lures play an important part in three way rigging on rivers. The common three way or Wolf River rig is one of the oldest and most effective means of keeping a bait near the bottom while trolling upstream. Comprised of six pound test main line and leader, a small three way swivel, a lead sinker and an assortment of super sharp hooks, upstream rigging is very popular on large rivers like the Mississippi, Illinois, St. Croix, and Missouri. 3-Way rigs are among the oldest yet least refined rigging concepts in walleye fishing. They’re chiefly used with livebait snells in rivers, lakes and reservoirs during summer months when walleyes move out on deep flats. Three-way rigs cover the water quickly when active walleyes spread across flats, but they also excel with slow presentations more subtle to neutral fish.

Berkley Gulp Add now a new product like Berkley Gulp and you have a fish catchin’ lure that walleyes can not resist For years, Berkley scientists have been working to isolate the natural chemical compounds that tell fish, "This is food", and stimulate them to feed. The challenge then is to reproduce those scent and flavor compounds in an artificial bait which fish believe is actual prey, and thus attract more fish and prompt them to bite.

These goals were realized in the early 1980s with the introduction of the highly successful line of Power Bait® products. Now, after nearly two decades of further testing and refinement, Berkley has developed a much more powerful scent formula, combined with an all-natural compound that fish perceive as food in every sense. New Berkley Gulp! Gulp looks, swims, smells, feels and tastes more natural to game fish than any plastic bait ever could. In fact, it's so close to the real thing, fish actually eat it! It's even 100% biodegradable, so no harm done...to the fish, or the ecosystem. You fish Gulp using the same techniques you've used with plastic and live baits. Same rigs. Same techniques. Gulp is more durable than live bait lasts longer, never dies. You will catch more fish. Plastic grubs or Power Baits, now Berkley Gulp can also be easily added to a Wolf River rig. I prefer to add the smaller panfish style curly tail grubs to a floating jig head to give it more action and added color. Dressing up a #1 or #2 Aberdeen worm hook with a three or four-inch twister tail is another excellent way to add plastic or Gulp to your 3-way rig. Plastic lures, and Gulp can be fished clean on a 3-way rig, but most anglers prefer to tip the plastic with livebait. Leeches, minnows and crawlers can all be used successfully while 3-way rigging. Power Grubs and Power Worms, especially the new "Neonz" and Berkley Gulp are good examples of plastic baits with action tails that are extremely productive. The three and four inch sizes are the best for walleyes, although two inch Grubs can be good with fish that are finicky. Go with the larger baits when a slow fall is desired or when the walleyes are active. The bass angler has caught on to the idea of the plastic worm fishing and I believe that the walleye angler can't be far behind. Give this a try! Gulp does out fish live bait and if you find out that it doesn’t drop me a line at www.walleye.info. Hope to see you on the water with a lot of Gulp and some great fishing success
