what species are you targeting???

 

Yes...we would use gulp shrimp too for halibut.  Its not that they had much action..the scent slick seemed to be the enticer....we would drop shot them.

 

If you have not done it...dropshotting gulp and soft plastics in the salt can be deadly.

The biggest advantage is working the presentation in place on structure instead of moving past it.

 

Mostly spotted seatrout, redfish, flounder, and Spanish mackerel.

 

I do like drop shotting Gulp baits. Works great. I did a deep dive some years ago learning about the origins of drop shotting, and learned that it originated in Japan, where there a lot of shore fishermen with access to limited structure, so they make the most out of what they have.

Every time I see people complaining about the durability of gulp I wonder why nobody recommends Elaztech baits from Z Man.  They are absolutely crazy indestructible and come in a ton of colors, shapes and sizes.  I use their plastics whenever possible as they last FOREVER.  Hard to get on the hook they’re so tough and if you’re cutting them down you better have scissors!  

 

They em don’t have the stink of pork but if it’s durability you’re after you’d be hard pressed to beat Elaztech!

I lucked out and came across a store that still had some Uncle Josh in stock. I bought a bunch at the time. When I run out I guess I'll go end up throwing otter tails instead.

I just don't like otter tails nearly as much as the real thing. It doesn't "flow" the same in the water and I've noticed it sometimes tangles more around the hook during casts and retrieves.

Couldn’t agree more on the otter tails ! Drives me bonkers with the way that they tangle up on the hook !!! Constantly fidgeting with them.
