Stopped by a local tackle shop here on Long Island's south shore and found the price of bloodworms dropped from $12.50/doz. last year to $8.99 now. Shop owner said Fishbites Bloodworm Alternative has knocked the bottom out of the price. It is a scent based artificial like Berkley Gulp but tough like pork rind.

Bloodworms
 
Cindy, the Gulp worms vary from $5.99 - $7.99, it's where you go. I picked them up for $5.99.

Question If uar are dead sticking for flounder are these gulps worms good has people had success with them with no movement. or is this type of bait better when its jigged ?

Not really!
 
The reason the price has dropped has nothing to do with gulp.
The is a large scale worm farm that is now selling farm raised worms that are cheaper and larger than the wilds.

MakoBob,

SeaBait of Maine. It is probably a good thing because my understanding was that worm diggers were decimating the worm population in Maine.

anywhere i can get artificial bloodworms like gulp or fishbites around bergen county New jersey? I visited Ramsey and Sports authortiy, and neither had any.

Also, that whole 12.00 gulp with 5 dollar rebate is such a hassle. Might as well buy real bloodworms.

It might also have something to do with most fishermen I know haven't bought bloods in years due to the non-excisting flounder population.
Years ago we bought a flat for 45.00 every weekend.

I think they only sell sandworms. Not bloodworms.
