Berkley Gulp! Earthworms
Another Excellent Bait
I have been using the Gulp earthworms for over 6 months with great results. They work well for trout on a split shot rig and are excellent panfish bait with a bobber. They have also been very productive for catfish. The natural color works best for panfish, stripers and catfish but the pink ones are the best for trout.

We have been using the Red Wigglers for at least 5 years now. We use them to tip the streamer flies when trolling for trout. Boy does it work! Bites fall off to nothing if the fish steal the bait.
Great product; just keep in the tackle box ready to go. Typically outfishes real worms three to one. I think the wiggle of the worm(we use a whole one) and the scent trail does the trick. Bad as that stuff smells the fish love it.
Don't go fishing without them; they work!

First they smell like Vinegar as much as I can describe it anyway. Second my wife and I have had luck across the board with the natural earthworm, nightcrawler and Red worm.
#1 Hitter is Blue Gill and Sunfish close to the bank, but we have caught bass and many Catfish on the bait. Bobber off for Cat and on for the others usually.
What I like is that they last on the hook. You can keep them in the car. They are not messy and honestly you can put a jar in the pocket and grab your Rod and go fish.
No doubt perfect for kids and I have purchased bulk of the product and continue to do so. Real worms will do better but far more messy to work with.

I wouldn't have believed it...
This bait looks kind of like live worms, in a tubular non wiggiling sort of way. Unlike a box of worms these don't die in the heat and you can leave them in your car. I suspect I could take these in a backpack for prolonged hiking trips with my pack rod and ultra-light gear and arrange for the occasional fresh fish on the trail. Panfish love this bait and I can't wait to try it on trout up north. My 3 year old daughter had a blast catching bluegill with this bait, but like all Gulp baits the smell is lingering (to put it nicely).
