Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

After watching some YouTube videos on bluegill fishing and the Lucky Tackle Box Panfish reviews on YouTube, I went shopping today. I went to Cabela's and Sports Academy and didn't find ANY of the lures and plastics on my list. Stores around here seem to specialize in LARGE lures for LARGE largemouth bass. The fishing line began at 10 lbs while I was looking for 4 and 2 lb lines. So, can anyone suggest an online company that sells things like the Zoom Tiny Fluke, Impulse Slug Bug and Impulse, the Tree Top Lures Tubby Grub, and the Baby Craw, the Lip Ripper Floating Dooies, and the Impulse Scud Bug? And while you're at it, if there is another great bait that you know that I didn't mention, then please MENTION it! What I would like to try is drifting and drop shot fishing with some of these baits. I can catch tiny bluegills near the bank in my hydro-electric impoundment, but I have yet to find any decent sized fish. I'm thinking they may be deeper. I have a Humminbird, (don't remember the model number) but it's a few years old and it's just a down image, not a side image machine. If anyone has suggestions to help me find and catch some larger bluegills, I would be grateful for any help offered. 

Thanks 

Randall
