Great time of year to be fishing them on Ultralight gear with 6 pound fluorocarbon. I went fishing this evening with a buddy of mine and I caught Largemouth, Bluegill, Crappie, skipjack and shellcrackers all on the same lure... 3 inch gulp minnow and a trout magnet jig... lost count of all the fish I caught but sure is fun... I kept expecting to catch a catfish and small mouth but did not... That would have been the "evening trifecta"... It is strange cause I catch a lot of channel cats on them and also small mouth but neither of those showed up tonight.

Just figured I would share the info...

I hear ya... they are very close to live bait... it never seems to amaze me the volume and variety I catch when fishing with these things... I tend to catch more on the 1 inch but mainly just catching more bream...

Funny you should post that. I fished with the 4 inch gulp minnow Friday for the first time . I caught 3 large mouth, several got off. 3 channel catfish and a sauger. I started off today with a 3 inch gulp minnow and only got one hit on it all morning before I switched to a crank bait.

of course FAL friday was outstanding as compared to today. when they hungry, they hungry but when they aint, they are finicky.

Second biggest largemouth I ever caught was on a gulp minnow. I just had it dangling over the side of the boat and a 7+ pound largemouth came out of no where and inhaled it on the French Broad across the river from where the little pigeon dumps out in to it.
