Berkley Gulp!® Turtle Back Worms
best worms ever made
the Berkley Gulp worms are some of the best worms I have ever used. If you get the worm close to a Bass they will bite.

I just bought my first pack of these in Pumpkinseed. I had used Berkley Powerbait before and thought I'd give GULP a try. Talk about surprised!! My first 10 casts...8 fish!! I never had that many hits that fast before...with anything! What an AWESOME bait! The fish just tore them up! They are a little soft but still last longer than live crawler.

My favorite worm
I have used these Turtlback worms for about 2 years & they are my favorite plastic bait. They are heavy enough to be fished weightless (they sink, not float), but I typically Texas rig them with a 1/4 or 1/2 bullet sinker. I would highly recommend them for someone who is new to plastic worm fishing, for the bass really do hang onto them a long time and they are soft enough for hook sets from beginners. For my waters, the Pumpkinseed & Junebug work best.
Not a complaint, but an observation, two of those features can also be negatives. I lose more of these worms when landing fish because they sink when fish throw them off the wook (often I have a decision to grab the fish or the sinking worm). They do tear easy being so soft, but I'll take that because I find it leads to a higher hookset ratio.
Also, when I use up all the worms in a pack, I pour the "juice" that is in the package into a ziplock containg older assorted, non-scented worms. They don't absorb it as well as the gulp worms, but it still works well.

Best worms made
I started using the Gulp brand a few years ago and have not looked back. The fish pick them up and won't let go. Best worms I have ever used.
