Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

I just saw a youtube video of Roland Martin and a lake Okeechobee bluegill guide, and I didn't understand his beetle spin mods, these are the favorite lure of my children. does anyone have any beetle spin mods or suggestions/ideas?

thanks!

I carried the link here maybe somebody could figure out what they are doing ..he calls it a beetle spin but he's using a eagle claw spinner with a 1/6 oz jig head .. I like the rod RM  is using ..

I think #2 Colorado blade? 1/32 oz grub? 1/16 oz jighead with a tiny hook(where do I get those?)

anyone know where I could get jigheads that are 1/16 oz with tiny hooks?

thanks!

he may be building his own beetle spin type baits.  i use arkie jig spinners and crappie magnet hair jigs to build mine.  ill check my boat tomorrow and post what size spinners they are as well as the hook sizes.  personally on KY lake gills i like a #6 hook unless conditions call for finesse then i down size to #8.  i do like the white/red stripe soft baits that come with the beetle spins but i have been using a pearl/pink tube body with great success.  

Roland is one of the great bass anglers of his time but not so sure when it comes to tips on catching more panfish.

I catch all species and all size fish using 8lb test braid/ 2 lb test diameter. If I use a leader of f/c I never need to use less than 6 lb test.  1/16oz and 1/24 oz jigs do fine with Beetle Spins and with other finesse soft plastics or dog hair jigsJig hook size: 4 or 6;  8 maybe for ice fishing.

He mentioned the word clevis which is usually used with in-line spinners, spinnerbaits,  and like was mentioned above, an Eagle Claw two-way spinner- never a Beetle Spin. 

The only changes to be made using a Beetle Spin are the lures attached to it.

Still selling stuff after all these years.
