Do you love big bluegill?
You can pick up a lifetime supply of bluegill lures in multiple colors in your local dollar store toy isle. I use a pair of scissors to cut off the various stretchy toy appendages in different lengths. They are soft and durable. I usually drop shot rig them on a #8 Owner Mosquito hook or a #12 aberdeen fly hook. They stay on the hook well, seldom requiring replacement. The un-weighted material floats and might make a good fly fishing or Tenkara lure on a small hook. See attached photos.
yep and I get mine at walmart on big balls
Resourceful and cost effective there Marcus ! I use plastics sometimes but not a lot anymore .Bait from the yard or cheap hotdogs cut into pieces is my choice these days .Going to use plastics this weekend though as I 'm camping and fishin' the Delaware river for 2 days and it'll be practical to use some of the plastic baits I have .
those tentacle things feel more like a worm than a worm does.llots of online vids of flies and jigs made from these things
