I have the small minnows used for ice fishing and they smell like rotten -----! The smell is so nasty that I will not use them anymore. Not that I caught any fish with them anyway. I have had terrible luck with gulp.
Got a few lake trout in Port Austin harbor, Caseville and broken rocks through the ice. Used the 3 inch smelt black and white on a gold pearl do jigger. Never got a walleye but i don't try much. They do stink and the juice in the bag will freeze if left out. Would rather have a big minnow but cant get them in Port Austin so I always got GULP if i need it.
