Do you love big bluegill?
I can not agree more! In my state the bass have seen every lure in every color combination 100 times over. I have been ultra light spin fishing for nearly my entire life. I average over 160 days on the water a year not counting ice fishing. I maintan a 50 fish per session average. All on lures. I have many 100 fish days on bluegills and Yellow Perch and many many awesome sessions on crappie. Enjoy the UL my friend it is a great way to fish.
I basically fish soft plastic lures on ultra light tackle 90% of the time. I like 1.5" to 2" plastic tails. I love Berkley power Grubs, Charlie Brewer Slider grubs, Kalin's grubs , etc. I rig them on either 1/16oz or 1/8oz jigheads. I also use small minnow baits and crankbaits at times. The Gary Yamamoto 2" senko wacky rigged on a size 4 finesse widegap hook works great too. I cast to docks and points. Outside and inside edges of weedlines, riprap areas, mud to hard bottom transition area's.....Feel free to message me if you need more details.
Look at it this way Lyndon - bass are sunfish, in that they are in the same family of fishes.
Many of the same baits, lures and techniques work on both, in the same ways. The real major difference being just the scale of things.
