Lucky craft 55mm humpback minnow suspending, This is so hard to find If ANY of you can help thanks.
My absolute favorite is a 1/32 ounce jig head, with no barb, painted chartreuse with a black eye. Then I add a BPS "tripple ripple" grub that has a black body and a chartreuse tail.

It looks just like a big ol' dragonfly nymph struggling around.

I fish it low 'n' slow.
I picked a pack of those tripple ripple grubs the other day at bass pro. Cant wait to try them out. Couldnt find the black bodied ones though. Remember you mentioning them in another forum post. Along with little green plastic crickets with red hooks through the body.
My favorite lure would have to be a 1/32 ounc jighead with a little 2inch white twister tail grub. Not only do the bluegills love em but you can cath tons of other species with this lure as well.
I do the fly-flingin' thing, so you might not be interested, BUT... I really love a wooly bugger, or a popper, or a green paradrake, all around #12, give or take a size.
I usually fish a 1/80th Grizzly jig tipped with a meal worm either under a slip cork or just using a slow steady retrieve.
1/32 lead jig tied hard body stylye witha cricket.
yeah musky mod, I'm not finding a good source for the rattle flash spoons either, at least not in all the colors.
One of the best year round blue gill lures for me has been a #10 or12 Genz worm, make sure the knot is pulled towards the back of the jig so it hangs horizontal, small 3/4 in tubes, plastic tails or smashed wax worms, during the open water season hung below a thill shy bite float, it whacks em' good...I put back any and all gills over 8 1/2 inches...Bruce Yinger
My first choice is to use a homemade pink jighead tipped with a piece of nightcrawler my second choice is a orange twistertail on a pink or black jighead
