Default Flies proved better catchers than Gulp Alive

For the past few days I've been testing soft plastics (including Gulp Alive .... the best plastic) against regular flies (Woolybuggers, Sponge Spiders, and BH Hares Ear).

It really surprised me! The flies won 10 to 1 , maybe 20 to 1!

I targeted Bluegills in 3 local lakes. I'm totally confident with only flies now! I am totally convinced that a big 9" Bluegill would rather hit a size 14 Beadhead Hear's Ear Nymph than a Gulp Alive 1" Smelt Minnow on a tiny jighead.

I've compared a dozen times, and I'll only take my fly rod from here on out!
