How to prevent Gulp Alive jars from leaking
A lot of people have found Gulp Alive baits to work nearly as well as live bait; some say it's even better.
But everyone hates the smelly, sticky liquid that always leaks from Gulp Alive jars once they are opened.
The solution is not to take off the cardboard cover on the rim. In large baits such as Gulp leeches and Gulp worms, just make a double cross-slit across the surface of the cardboard, leaving the entire cardboard piece in place. You can just push your fingers through the cross-slits and get the bait.
In smaller baits such as these Gulp Alive waxworms which I like to use for perch ice fishing, you can cut out the inside of the cardboard leaving the cardboard over the rim. This leaves room for your fingers in the small jars to pick up the bait.
The cardboard acts as a gasket on this popular artificial bait's jars. If you take away the cardboard, the jars will leak.
Do Gulp Alive waxworms work for perch? Well, I've got to go clean a mess of perch right now and oh yes, a nice northern pike as well.
