I am looking for help on fishing ponds for gills(pms accepted-lol).. What company or ebay seller sells good plastic crickets or other baits that would catch some fair size Bluegills. I am looking for instant help to get me in the Ballgame. Plastic creature/ company or maker address / hook/ hooksize and float.. Thanks to those willing to hare their hard earned secrets.

    Almost any small (1/64 or 1/32 oz) jig or fly will catch bluegill.

    Trout magnet, beetle spin, crappie sliders, etc. work great. Any Walmart will carry these or something similar.

    I haven't used the Gulp Alive Crickets personally, but did see a video of a guy doing a comparison using them along side live Crickets for BG. The live Crickets did very well, as expected, but the Gulp Crickets caught hardly any fish at all in that video. Don't know how conclusive this is though?

    The Gulp Minnows however, as ketchn has stated, are a very effective, proven BG bait.

    Mister Twister Micro Craw. Not a cricket, a little crawfish, but the bream seem to love them. I use a 1/32 oz jig with a #6 hook, or smaller, like a 0.5 g Daiwa Gekkabijin with #10 hook. For scent I use slab sauce or a tiny piece of Berkley power wiggler.

    i have tested the gulp cricket , the gulp worm and the gulp minnows , the gulp minnows are by FAR the best of the 3 , the crickets were totally a waste of money and the worms were on their best day ONLY if you were desperate .
