Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

I am excited about tring these small spoons for BIG bluegills what areas of the lake should I target and what tech do I use during my retreave. The lake I fish has many sand bars with deep water close to these humps. I do well in the spring till earl;y summer and then I can't find them any more Thoughts?

Deep, along the lower transition from bottom to sandbar is one idea.

Early and late on the upper transition of the sandbars is another.

THANKS HAVE YOU TRIED THIS TECHNIQUE?
After the spawn, look for fish suspending just outside the deep weed edge, in close proximity to deeper water.
Agree with Musky. Not sure if it's a northern 'thing' but have found the big 'gills acting more like Crappies post spawn(s). The smaller ones tend to head deep off the first drop and stay on/near the bottom munching on the worms or larvae hatches going on, which they may follow up to the surface. Big ones seem to prefer minnow fry, take them nearly interchangeable with the Crappies very often. They will attack a bug hatch as will Crappies but small minnow imitations do a number on them, suspended/moving around, most of the summer. They do tend to make shallower flats excursions much more often than Crappies, usually chasing a specific hatch
thanks Cobra I have to search my lake it is very deep in alot of areas with many sand bars witch makes it great because the speed limit is 10mph no jet skies or pleasure boaters
