Berkley Gulp! Alive! Angleworm Micro Baits
This does catch fish but its no replacement for real wax worms.

Work when you run out of everything else
These worms, they do work. However they really cannot compare to the classic lure invented by mother nature, a real worm. They have their uses though. Like when I was out channel catfishing and needed more cut bait. I just pulled out my Ultra-Light rod and popped one of these on a hook, dipped it in the water, and pulled out 6 itty bitty gills that were then cut up into pieces and thrown out for the cats. So yes, these work. But only if you don't have the convenience of buying real worms.
While I cannot recommend these strongly over actual worms, I must commend Gulp! for their hard work and attention to detail on the realism of these worms. They really do look and feel like the real thing.

Fantastic With Other Baits
Great Bait!!! I mainly use these for the panfish that hang out around the boat launch at the lake by my cabin. The only way to catch fish effectively is to have these in natural, Gulp Alive Waxies in white, and Gulp Alive 1 inch minnows in emerald shiner. I tend to start out with waxies, if that doesn't work, then I switch to these, if that doesn't work, then I will switch to the minnows. I just use any bobber rig with a smaller sized bobber. A small split shot or two and then a small size twelve dry fly hook that I have for fly tying.

Great bream bait
This is great to keep in your tackle box for those days the bass aren't biting and you want to kill some time fishing for panfish. It works just as well as real redworms, but you don't have to go through the trouble of buying live bait. I even caught a nice stringer of bluegill off my friend's dock on Smith Lake, where fish are as finicky as they get due to gin clear water and heavy boat traffic. Just make sure not to use a hook that's too small, because about every fish I caught swallowed the entire hook because they love this stuff.
