There has been great debate in the past but to put it in a nutshell save your money and buy proper bait. I don't know how tackle shops can give it away never mind sell it.

Gulps not very good as a static bait, just whacked out with a beachcaster and forgotten about, but if you treat it as a lure it is very effective, especially the peeler when fished on a 2-10g jighead into kelp forests for codling, pollock or coalies up the west coast of Scotland.
The worm, sandeels and shads have been getting good results on Bass, Turbot and Plaice on the south coast sandbanks out from Plymouth and Weymouth over the last couple of years too. Also been very good for pollock and whiteing on the reefs out from Looe.
The worm in shorter 3in lengths is very god for flatties in esturies when fished on 0.9-3.5g jigheads and allowed to bounce down in the flow, or for mullet on baited spoons.
Look up LRF fishing for lots of user reports as its one of the goto baits for fishing light along with Isome worm.
