Default Bloodworm substitutes-Any luck in '07?

There are many bloodworm-substitute baits out there now- Fishbites Bag o Bloods, Seabait Bloodworm Potion, Maine Baits' Bloodworm liquid bait, some kind of "squid strip" in Bloodworm flavor, and perhaps others.

Has anyone ever used any of these products for Striped Bass, seen them used, "heard something about them being used", etc-

I tried the Cold-water Fishbites Bloods in the Hudson last year and was less than impressed, though since I was shorefishing I may not have really given them a fair shake-even with real Bloods it requires a lot of patience as the hits are generally few and far between.

Bloods have gotten up to $12 a dozen in the general area of the Hudson River where I usually fish, and they are just straight up the best bait to use from shore around here.

Just looking to see if any of these products have the potential to liberate the numerous shorebound Hudson River Blood-Chuckers from the grip of high prices and RIDICULOUSLY small bloodworms that count as part of the $1-a-worm dozen you buy. Many of these worms are of a size that, if I recall correctly, are too small to be harvested under current Maine harvest regulations (Where they come from).

The prices are just getting out of hand. There's gotta be another way. Maybe.
