Getting tired of getting crawler dirt on the boat and was thinking about getting a container (either the 3in smelt or leech) Anyone use them consistently?? what are your thoughts about this stuff???



Thanks in advance!

Just DON'T let it leak on ANYTHING you care about...
I've caught more fish on 'plain ole" plastic baits...
BUT, I don't have a "Berkley Corporate Sponsership" to uphold. >:D

That **** stinks. I put my crawlers in either dead leaves or wet newspaper, no more black dirt.

Real leeches work much better anyway-

What Boon says is true. I catch more keepers by ripping blades than dragging worms now.

My II Cents

If you have a rear live well keep the worms in there and bait hooks over it.
When done fishing pour water in it to rinse it out.

No rear live well use the motor splash well. :thumb:

Plano makes a nice waterproof container. Transfer the gulp into those and no worries about spilling. Nice thing about gulp is the colors don't bleed. Mix a few different colors and sizes in the Plano and they are good to go. Caught a lot of fish on the minnow baits, no so much the leeches.

Thanks guys, I've only used the ones that come in a smaller 10 pack, never the rechargeable, bigger container of liquid. That's nice that you can mix the leeches and minnows together. Also, the times I've used it, I've caught multiple fish on one bait. Crawlers, you are almost always re-baiting. In fact it's a bit of a celebration when you don't lose worms.:D Although I will say crawlers is my bait of choice. You catch everything that swims & they'll out fish everything out there.

Yep, that's what I use.
Great minds think alike!

And they come with some tongs so you don't have to stick your hand in the stinky!!
Here's a shot of both.
