blue gillWorms, crickets, and other live bait will always catch bluegill, but if you want to catch more bluegill, switch to jigs. Bug-like jigs are great lure imitations, and tiny is better than big.

Tiny fishing jigs can be more easily fished at the sluggish pace that sunfish prefer. These featherweight jigs snag less and can tempt fish that may not be hungry enough to chomp a big bait. Also, enticing, erratic retrieves are possible with tiny offerings that can’t be duplicated with bigger jigs.

When bluegill get picky, matching their diet with a jig imitation can bring more action. Also remember that they may smell the jig before deciding to eat, so a panfish attractor scent, or tipping it with a maggot or worm piece, could help a lot.

Bluegills love eating bugs, and jigs that mimic these tiny creatures will help you catch more bluegills.
