they tell me the whitting are biting really good, and are "nice sized", BUT, they are 'wormy" Cry. . 7 years ago, when we first went there, it was only the "bigger" black drum that had "worms", now  , it seems almost everything that you catch from the beach has them ! I suppose that might be a result of the decline in water quality  Huh?
I bet you can find a worm in every marine fish if you know what to look for.  It is better not to know what to look for and to just keep eating them like you've always done.  Do not, under any circumstances, read Robin Overstreet's book which is now available at a very reasonable price from Amazon.

I found that "pva" stuff on Amazon.....ordered some in "bag" form...a couple different sizes. It sure looks to be a pretty good option.....I was thinking that the 'organza' (or whatever that prom dress stuff is called) might not be something I wanted to see floating around in the gulf !  Too much crap out there, already !

been thinkin' (it only hurt a little)

the carp guys are generally working in drier conditions (spray, mist, fog and such) and their bait/chum is not surface-damp
maybe, only the slow-melt PVA is practical for S/W logistics -- it IS water-soluble, after all
(maybe, change your order if you still can)

please let us know how the stuff works out (I only know about it -- never tried it)
specifically, is it strong enough to put in EVERYTHING: lead, baited hook(s), loose bits as chum, etc.
so you're casting "one object"

That sounds like a really cool product. I'm looking forward to hearing how it works out! Is it expensive?

Elastic thread 🧵 is easily available at sewing stores, come in red,white and black colors and is about three and a half dollars.  I use the Dritz brand as it’s very elastic and you get a good sized roll.
  You can easily make a handy dispenser by slotting the side of a pill bottle with a cap. Or purchase one in the sewing store.   When you drop the dispenser the thread stays ready to use, unlike if you just drop the open spool on the rocks,  just my 2 sents.🎣🦀
