The fish in this lake are extremely finicky. They always have been and getting them to bite has always been a challenge. However, tempting them into the area has never been an issue. This year, we went with an unconventional method and it called the bluegill in from all over.
That's exactly what it looks like: a wacky rigged Senko. While I despise this "do nothing bait" for bass, it's slight wiggles was a bluegill beacon this weekend. For whatever reason they seemed fascinated by it, and it was enough to draw them into our area. Using tiny jigs tipped with "spikes" we were able to coax a few into biting and had a very successful day on the hard water.
