Yes it works. I've caught tons of fish on Berkley Gulp Alive Saltwater. I really like the 3" shrimp tails in newpenny. I use them on 1/8oz jig heads mostly, and quite a bit under a popping cork. I also enjoy the 4" swimming shads for flounder. I tie them in tandom, and use the pink and white in combination, or the white and chartreuse, or pink and chartreuse. They work fantastic. I've caught trout, redfish, flounder, croaker, whiting, sand trout, spanish macks, small grouper, red snapper, drum, blue fish, pompano, and jacks on them. They work. I don't go fishing without them in salt water. I keep tubs of them.
