Using soft plastics while fishing has several advantages over the traditional bait fishing method. Casting soft plastics means that you will cover more territory when compared to bait fishing, and they are also advantageous due to their movement in the water which helps fish locate the lure. However, it’s important to remember that fish have a keen sense of smell, and some soft plastics come out of the packet smelling like rubber.
Adding a scent to your lure could be just what you need to get the fish firing on a slow day's fishing.
The Berkley Gulp range of soft plastics is great because they are already scented, so can be fished straight out of the packet. However, it might be necessary to ‘re-activate’ your soft plastics once they have been fished with. You can do this by making sure your packet has plenty of Berley Gulp Re-Charge to ensure they are ready to go.
It comes in a 236ml bottle, so you can pour it directly onto your lures or add it to your soft plastic packets. The famous Gulp formula will attract both salt and freshwater species from afar.
You can also use this product to give your home-made berley mix an extra kick, so that more fish are attracted to your fishing area.
Make your artificial lures smell alive, thanks to the Berley Gulp Re-Charge.
