Looks ALIVE, tastes ALIVE, feels ALIVE -- because your bait actually "lives" in a natural, super-charged GULP solution! It's softbait in a bait bucket! Because these super-realistic biodegradable Berkley® Gulp! Alive®! Shrimp actually "live" in a high-octane Gulp! solution, they absorb up to 20% more attractant. That's 20% more scent, more taste, more action and more reason for fish to snap them up! Each super-charged Gulp! Alive! Shrimp bait disperses its potent essence like a blood trail in the water, and when you're done catching, you can simply put your Gulp! Alive! Shrimp back in the bucket to recharge for another day!
Live bait better?
I'm on the fence about this bait. I've heard great things from fellow anglers, but my luck has been about 50/50. Mostly use it for inshore perch, but skrimp or squid works just as well. I also noticed some molded in my tackle box after a couple weeks, nasty. It is easy to use. I've chopped it up and baited a sabiki with it and has results. Wish it worked better.

waste of money
The new gulp formula is pathetic. I have fished with gulps for several years, since they first came out. They used to last for several fish and were impossible to pull off the jig. This new biodegradable politically correct formula is so soft, one fish destroys them. At around a buck apiece, it is not worth it. Fish still love them, but they are way too soft and easy to pull off the jig by tail biters.

Best Saltwater plastic
I went fishing off the dock in mexico and literally caught a fish every cast. nice fish to. caught many Trumpet fish, Trigger fish, Parago, Jacks of all kinds, Dog Puffers, ladyfish, and hooked up to a big rooster fish but broke off because i was using 8 pound line. Any color works on any species.

Best Salt Water Trout
Works great, especially when small fish are around. You can catch several fish with out running out of bait. I use it for Trout, Reds, and the occasional Sheepshead

Not as a carry- as far as I know. If you do add them to your checked baggage, I do recommend the Gulp Alive Bait Management System by Plano. Definitely a great investment to prevent the Alive juice from leaking out on everything.
If you catch a pompano run, this works well with a double drop rig on a piramid sinker. 3/4 or 1 oz is usually adequate, but it depends on your rod, distance of surf, and strength of current. Switch colors until you find what they are biting
The only difference I could notice ( I purchased both) was that the 6 pack didn't have as powerful of a scent. The shrimp in the bucket had a much more powerful scent when I purchased them and I had more luck with them. I personally like actual live shrimp when I fish and probably would't buy either again.
I used the new penny on a Carolina rig to be able cast it on a bigger rod. The gulp was on a 1/2 oz black jig head and caught nice drum right up in the wash. I didnt have any problems with them falling apart and worked very well.
light colors in clear water and dark in darker water.

When using Gulp shrimp, I prefer the 3" size. The color I have had the absolute best results on is in New Penny on a 1/8 - 1/4oz red jig head or weighted jerk hook. I encounter water from stained tea and coffee to gin to clear. The two other colors I keep on hand are Nuclear/Electric Chicken and Pearl White.
In the colder months, work them slow and easy, as fish are a bit more lethargic. If used under a popping cork, hook through the middle and jerk/pop it a few times every other minute to attract attention.
