Arrow Best Gulp Color For Jigging For Walleyes

I was wondering what color of the gulp minnows work best for you when jigging for walleyes, and if you use gulp alive or regular gulp. I want to know before I go buy a bunch

Thumbs up

Here in Mid-Michigan, the Smelt color really shines. I buy them by the pint (GULP! Alive). C-man

Aren't gulp and gulp alive the same thing? Just that the alive has a bunch of scent juice that can be used to resoak your baits?

I have found that the white with the chartruese seems to be the top color for me when using gulp. I pretty much always use frozen minnows or live worms or leeches.

We have a live minnow ban here so frozen is the way to go over plastics most of the time.

I like all the colors...chartreuse if dirty water and natural looking colors in clear water. There is some kind of difference in the composition of the two. I put regular gulp minnows in with gulp alive and they ended up turning real soft/mushy and wont stay on a hook very long....basically ruined them. So if ya have both keep them separate...atleast for long term storage.

You had better have numerous colors on hand.
Different water conditions, clarity, forage present, depth, etc.
Ya never know....

I have gone to storing all my Gulp in the Gulp juice.

Default Color of gulp

Tmac is right, have all colors along. Instead of loading up on just one color, have a good supply of all colors. Experiment constantly. I have had a color work good in the A.M. than change in the P.M. It changes on time of year too. Some lakes seem to produce well with certain colors.

I fish a lake close to home that is clear and white and Flo. Yellow are the two best colors. Other lakes have different combinations. So experiment on the lakes you fish untill you see a definite patern. To increase your multi color presentation, also use different color jig heads. Experiment there too to see if there is a color combination that seems to work better than others.

This might seem like a lot to do about nothing, but I've always seen that the little things make a big difference. It's also a good idea to kep a log book on the different lakes you fish so you can remember all the little differences that work well on what lake. Good luck fishing

I know that you should really have a bunch of colors, but I am looking for some colors to start off with. I was thinking about getting a couple colors just to try to see what works good on the places I fish. So what I really wanted to know was what is a good all around color(like if you could only choose 1 or 2 colors what would they be?) Eventually I hope to have a bunch of colors but I don't have 80 bucks to get all the colors
