Gotta Love The Gulps

Berkley Gulps pretty much work as advertised.  They claim to outfish live bait and a lot of the time they do.  The only style I use are the 3" and 4" shrimp in a variety of colors but New Penny is my favorite.  The redfish really seem to love this color.  Rigged on a 5/0 Marsh Works swimbait hook as pictured above makes them weedless and easy to cast along the mangroves.  This is my go-to artificial for reds right now.  The only drawback to Gulps is their cost.  If you buy them in the smaller packets they're usually $1 a piece.  Buy them in the big buckets, which usually run around $40, and you'll get your money's worth.
