Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

- my family goes fishing almost daily. We use nightcrawlers and mealworms as bait with a lot of success. we just wanted to know if there was any good bait besides that.

- also, what is some good artificial baits. (does YUM and other scented bait work?)

-what are some good jigs, crankbaits and other things like spinners.

- i appreciate your answers alot..........thanx - SARAH and ZACK


ALSO, WHAT ARE SOME SUCCESSFUL FLIES?

i use whitebread (arnolds. brick oven) it seems to work. they realy go for it if they're hungry. if you want me to show you what typ of flies i use that work, just ask because i didnt take any pics of them yet. ill also have to try new ones. i just dont like taking them off the line and tying other ones on.

Gulp works in almost every body of water that I have fished. Good luck!

we were going to go fishing today, but had no bait and only a saltwater rod. tied on a size 8 hook on 50 lb. test. it's so dry that in 3 hours of bait-searching, only 10 crickets and a nest of caterpillars.

hey guys thanks for the advice. Next weekend there's a fishing tournament, and i want to get a big bull to get the experience of cooking one up. my dad's gonna show me and my brother (Zack thomasson) how to fillet one with our new rapala filleting knife.
i'll use your advice and hopefully get a big one. =)

Those are all great. But something that will get the bass walleye u name it biting. I use gulp alive!!! Also i use a crayfish crank bait made by REBEL. u can get both of them at Wal-Mart, Dick's Sporting Goods. Anywhere they sell fishing stuff.

I use ice fishing jigs alot tipped with waxworms.Most anything in the Custom Jigs & Spins line works for me I especially like diamond jigs.Gill Pills,Rat Finkee's.

Nightcrawlers and mealworms are great baits but try leafworm, leeches and waxworms!

1/24 oz roostertail and no. 0 or 00 Mepps spinners are great bluegill spinners!

I caught a lot of bluegills on 1/64 oz Orange or red or green jighead with GULP maggots or Waxworm!

any small lure like 1/8 oz crankbait, small spoons etc do get some nice bluegills!
