    Question

    Anybody have any success with the berkley gulp blood worms? IM sure that nothing works better than a real worm but I saw them at Dicks Sporting goods the other day and figured why not and try them.

    I don't have any experience with the bloods but the Sand Worms used to work really well.

    I think the gulps and fishbites work just as good as the real thing. Gulps have more life like action and look. Fishbites are easier to care for and store.

    just read the package i know the fishbite blood worms work better than the gulp for a fact but some of them are ineffective in water temps under 65 degrees. Fish bite does make cold water artificial baits but i'm not certain they have the blood worm scent yet.

    I use the sandworm model all the time for fluke. This past yr w/ the weakfish coming back I used the same worms for them and have in the past w/ great results. I use a nightcrawler harness on the worms. They are not stainless but they don't last long anyway. Pick up the 3 hook design and hook the worm at different points down its lenght, you can prevent shortstrikes quickly.

    I feel The Berkley Gulp Blood worm and Sandworms work great. I got Kingfish and Croakers with them at Island Beach this past year and in NWW as well.

    The GULP definately works, do not confuse the Gupl Baits with Power Baits. They even just came out with a clam in 2", 3" and 4". I've got them all in stock and there is a really worthwhile rebate that will get you $5 back for every $10 you spend.

    For you die hard live bait guys I do have plenty of live bloodworms in stock and I just got a load of fresh surf clams. I'll be open every day from 7 am to 5 pm.

    MAKE sure that they are for cold water most fish bites are for water temps at 65 and over!!

    Dave it was nice meeting you and your partner today.

    You have the most impressive Gulp selection I have ever seen. I was shocked to see the clams and sand fleas in gulp form as well.

    Gulp bloodworms did great for flounder last year and we will expand our use to other species this year. So far only think Gulp is effective for bottom fishing, not stripers. Any other opinions out there?

    Gulp bloodworms, used them last year as an experiment off the beach. Set up the worms on a high low rig and left it out there what felt like all day, nothing. I'll be trying the fish bites this year.
