    I often depend on bluegill as bait for flathead. I have a tip to
    develope spots to reliably produce bluegills with no added
    cost and very little effort.

    Any place you fish that you observe tent worms on limbs overhanging
    the water is a hotspot. Bluegills hang around eating any worms falling
    into the water. I often reach up with an rod tip and poke a hole in
    the tent to enhance the spot.
     
  2. hmmm, very intiresting! i see them all the time but never thought about them dropping off and attracting fish. when i was a kid we would try to catch a carp, or find some roadkill and tie it to an overhanging branch at a pond we would ride our bikes to. the maggots falling off would create awesome 'gill spots.
