what for bluegill?

Recommended Posts

For bigger bluegill use a small crappie jig.................but if you just want to catch a crap load of them use a fly.

BLUEGILL ROCK. (So do rock bass) ;D

i have a tiny panfish popper. will that work?

Don't know, I've never used topwater for them. But they will readily take a variety of artificial lures. I used to use a small Kastmaster spoon, but these days I use small crankbaits, mainly a Rapala Mini Fat Rap or Rapala Countdown, size 3. I suspect they would also take inline spinners, jigs and other appropriate-size lures.

You can use flies that look like spiders.  I have one called "the bream killer." Wal-Mart has them.  It works pretty good. If you don't know how to use it on fly fishing gear, put in a spinning gear and use a light split shot weight.

little tube jigs, paddle tail jigs, curly tail jigs, any little jig for that matter.  8-)  Different size jigheads for depth control.

I have caught plenty of bluegill that were in decent size while fishing for bass.

I found the REBEL small crayfish, crickhopper, and bumble bee lures to be productive. Also little surface popers and small inline spinners work well too.  ;D

so i can use a fly on light tackle?

You can also throw a fly with a casting bubble or even a bobber. Both will work.

There is a casting bubble i think its called rainbow float or something like that. It is a clear plastic bubble that you tie on a couple feet in front of your fly. Almost ANY fly will work, but the little spider ones are superb. The are made of foam with rubber legs, so the last forever. Btw, size 0 and 1 mepps work pretty good, so do small panther martins.

I use the Gulp Earthworms that come in the small jars.  You can get them anywhere usually.  Just thread them on a hook like you would a real worm, put a bobber a couple of feet above, and you'll be pulling blue gill out all day long.  It's the only thing I ever use.

I kill the Bluegills with a grilled Ball Park Frank.  All Beef.   ;D

I cut it into little chunks and hide a #1 circle hook in it.  If they are on to you, down size to a #4 hook and smaller chunk.

I used to use a ball of ready made dough.  Got it in a tube out of the grocers fridge.  Way to messy.  And the dogs are money.

I do not target them but I catch a lot of them on bass lures every year. This year I caught one on a 8" zoom lizard and a LC pointer 100sp.
