Man, the first time I used them, the Specs were trying to pull the pole out of my hands when they hit. They would hit it that hard. I even caught a 2 pound Sand Trout. After that first time, it's been hit or miss with the Gulp. I think it's like any other bait, the color matters. The first time I used them, I used the New Penny color Shrimp in 4 inch. The next time, they wouldn't touch it so I switched to Molten Shrimp in 3 inch and they tore that up. The only problem is that they are so soft. I catch a couple of fish and the bite the tip off and start over. I even turn them around after the head is all beat up and hook them through the tail. I can catch about 5 to 8 fish per bait like that. After I used all the baits out of the bucket, I started soaking my split tails in the juice and they work good too..
Hope that helps.
