Bluegill Catchin Tip
While you see most folks fishing for bluegills/bream/sunfish with a hook-n-bobber… I love to fish using in-line spinners and don’t be afraid to use some wacky colors every now and then!!! Always give them something that they haven’t seen before!!
I generally use the “double-ought” (or “00”) and then the “0” and the “1”…. lots of black and brown in-line spinners in my pack but there’s also yellow, red, and chartreuse…. even a few purples.
But one trick I love to use is tying on a trailing fly! I’ll tie it in using 2-pound (when you can find it!!) or 4-pound test line right on the d-ring used to hold the treble to the in-line spinner. Give yourself about a foot of line and tie on your trailing fly. This way, when the in-line spinner goes through the school, you’ll get a fish on there for sure but the all the other fish that have gotten excited will see that trailing fly and nail it too!!
Fish on y’all!
