Default Fishbites Fast-Acting Bloodworm Bait- Work in Hudson?

OK-so these things have been out for a few years now- seems people online always rave about the "regular" Fishbites bloodworms being a more than adequate substitute for the real thing baitwise in coastal, warmer waters.

The Fast-Acting is their colder water version of the product, allegedly more suitable for the temperatures found in the Hudson during the Run.

Anyway, has anyone ever caught a Striper during the Spring Hudson Run on this stuff?

Ever?

Thanks

I bought a package of bloods & sand fishbites to try, but think I should wait until stripers are biting to test them otherwise I'll have no comparison.

Hey Fin- I got my scap net and stoolie lures all set- just exploring other potential bait options- down this way for shore-fishing, bloodworms are used WAY more often than herring- I don't know why, it is just the way things are-plus some spots you really need to cast FAR to be effective and a bloodworm whether threaded on the hook or "net-bagged" into a small ball, casts further than chunk due to aerodynamics or whatever.

Also, sometimes you don't have time to "Go fishing before you go fishing", need "quick to get bait", and Bloods are freakin' Expensive- and that Fishbites stuff does last a long time on the hook, which potentially helps out economically.

"Bagging" real bloods can really stretch their useful life on the end of your line, which also helps $-wise.

Any way, best of luck gents!
