Berkley Gulp Sandeel what is it ?

Post by flynnboy »

Hi

I read an article recently in which the writer stated that the Berkley Gulp Sandeel was "excellent for estuary fishing and spinning off the rocks......... " I thought I would have a go at them and they arrived this morning, but I'm confused.

From looking at the packet they are obviously used as substitute bottom bait as they come with a 'flavour'/'scent' and are contained within juice in the packet. Are these the same thing that I read about and can they simply be used for spinning also as suggested ???

I bought some of the Gulp crabs as a standby bait, used them and nothing touched them at all. I don't rate them either.

Thanks guys ! Wow, so much for their hype !

Still interested to know if they can be used for spinning as the guy who wrote the article seemed to suggest or whether they are uniquely for the bottom ?

u can use them for spinning with a simple cast and retrieve method (similar to feathering) but your just as well using the unscented eels (redgill etc).
but personally i would use fresh/frozen eels.
