Has anyone ever sucessfully re-hydrated a dried out gulp?

I'm talking about a fully dried out packet - can they be brought back to life.

And is there a used by date on the liquid in those plastic tubs full of juice

Absolutely. I put fully dried out gulp in a container of tap water and they eventually plumped up to their original size.

I've never had any success with it, I end up just chucking 'em out.

It'd be handy to know, getting the month-old worm of a jig-head is usually a challenge.

Good to hear - roughly how long did it take and how long had the gulp been in a dried out state

Yeah I did a big clean up the other day and turfed a few packs - it only occurred to me today maybe I was a bit hasty

It just occurred to me that hot water might help the water get back in quick and straighten out any kinks- sure works on other dehydrated foods

Chuck some water in the packet and their good as gold, if you leave em on a jig water in cup they'll swell back up.easy as to get off the jig.

I forgot to say also, drain some of the water out of the packet otherwise they'll be super soft, their great mouse bait too, caught to mice at once on a half a 2 inch molting shrimp.

yeah when ever I watch those survival shows - they're always mucking around with blow pipes - spears - bow and arrows and traps.

All they need is a bag of gulp and a hook and they can catch anything that walks, crawls, flies or swims
