  Bluegill
  Posted by: RockyRaab on Apr-17-13 10:03 AM (EST)
 

THE classic baits for bluegill are a tiny piece of worm, a cricket, or a wax worm/maggot on a #10 Aberdeen hook - but those aren't artificials.

Get a few 1/16th ounce jigs in white or yellow. You can tip the hook with a Berkely GULP artificial maggot, or one of their tiny 1" minnows. Fish under a small float.

Two tips for fishing with kids: Don't try to fish yourself - you'll have a full-time job helping out with casts, tangles, baiting up and unhooking trophy fish. And don't plan to stay long, especially if the fish don't cooperate. Kids have an attention span measured in picoseconds, so if he wants to throw rocks or run around instead of holding the rod, let him. And come back another day.
