How about completely free, all natural processed bugs. Every morning on my picture window there are reminders of a night of feasting on bugs that are attracted to the light of the window and get consumed by the local frog population, by morning these bluegill bite size morsals are firm enough to be collected and saved for the next fishing trip, I call it Frog Gulp 2.0 , the secret bait for Giant Bluegill, Let us know how it works for you.
Well! This one is different. It's honest to goodness thinking outside the box. Litter box! Have you experimented with it Yer Lordship? I'd bet you have! Well, what's the poop from your personal tests? How well does it store, for how long. Do you need one of these for any odor problem?
Does it stay on the hook good?
Free, natural, delivered to your window ledge, catchy name! If we just had some visuals. Pictures, we need pictures. On a hook, in a bluegill's mouth. Not a CRAPpies mouth, a bluegill's! NO faking!. Actually catch one on Frog Gulp 2.0 and take pictures. I'm counting on you and trusting you LOFR, cause if this works, I will eat my crickets!. At least two of them.
You might want to rename your sensation Frog Gulp #2. Make up a little tune that parodies the old rock song Love Potion #9. "I held my nose I closed my eyes, I baited my hook".
Speakin' of baitin' a hook. I'm all out of crickets but thought sure I would have to get me some just to honor that I'll eat my crickets thing. Thought sure you was out gettin' pictures of gills caught on Frog Gulp whatever. Guess not huh? Guess I can get my crickets next time I go fishin' and let the gills eat 'em instead! I been gettin' all psyched up for my new appetizer and now His Lordship ain't got no pictures. Come on LOFR, go fish!!!!!! GULP!
It's hard to be serious after lord of the fly rods post, I can't stop laughing. Who knows, maybe it works, I've heard of crazier things. Now that I've got the tears out of my eyes let me say this: if using live bait I would use crickets, they're hard to beat, but after watching the gills shred my Bobby Garland baby shad bodies on 1/16 oz roadrunner heads while trolling for crappie, I would have to give that a try out on open water. They loved the crystal lamb, and the licorice-chartreuse pearl. The cajun cricket didn't do bad either.
World record bluegill on worms! Maryland record also on nightcrawler! If one bait I use for monster bluegills then it would be a fresh live small nightcraewler tip on hook and throw out! Leech on slip float is also real good bait from late Spring to Fall. I use giant leafworm most of the time!
