This year's Gulp seems to be more durable like they were in years past. When you can use one to catch 5-6 fish and as many as 20 at times, the cost goes way down. They work and account for 90% of my fishing. With the formula they were using last year, I did quit using them because they simply weren't worth it. They frequently came apart before I could even catch a fish on them. Much better now. My record for one gulp is 22 specks.

I use 1/4 oz jig most situations and 1/8 in summer when the grass is tall and thick and I have to keep it above that salad.

I have caught nearly everything that swims on them. Everything you would expect, plus Cobia, king, sharks, grouper, snapper, and every kind of ray.

Do you change the plastic more often to keep a fresh scent on it?
They're made of fish, not normal plastics, so the scent does not wash off like it does on other baits. The downside is that if you forget to take one off your jig head when you're done fishing, they dry up to a tiny piece of concrete and you'll have to throw that jig away.

Are you using the Gulp Alive that comes in the plastic container full of liquid or the regular Gulp that comes in a plastic pouch without any liquid?

It's the same stuff. The plastic pouches also contain the same liquid, just less of it than in the past. When I fish out of my boat, I keep a tub by me. When in my kayak, I keep the plastic bags in my shirt pocket.
