    Default #1 Gill/Cracker Bait

    I probably wont list enough to cover everybody but wondered what is your choice for your #1 bait when bream fishing.

    This is a trick poll. Here in Louisiana I use crickets for gills and small crawfish (under 1 inch) for chinqapins (crackers)
    I release all my fish... just before my fingers touch the grease.

    Maggots are easily #1. Mealworms would be a distant second.

    I've used crickets for gills but they dont seem to stay on the hook long enough so most times it's dug up worms from home for me.

    I like using tiny cranks the most, but I'm not claiming it is the most effective at all.

    If they wont hit a small jig, which i think you catch bigger gills on, then i break out the red worms, and the peacock float.

    Default Favorite Lure

    My favorite for bream and crackers is a small tube jig followed by crickets if necessary.
