    Default Gill Riggin

    I take 2-3 inch gills and a #4 hook and hook them right thru the eyes, then I take one of those big ol bobbers and set it about 1 or 1 1/2 deep and throw it right up on bank and drag towards me in the evening when the whoppers are on the prowl!!!:big_smile:

    If you're not fishing in any current, I'd just hook it through the back just behind the dorsal fin and then put it under a bobber at whatever depth you see them at. Also you can just throw the thing out there with no weight or bobber. This works really well when you can see the bass sitting there or if it's actively feeding. Hope some of this works for ya.

    Default Ellusive 'gills...

    I like to fish them on a "free line" with no weight or bobber. However, if you are fishing around a lot of weeds, put a smaller hook through the nose from inside the mouth out, without pinning the lips together. This uses your line sort of as a block so they can't get back into the weedline as easy as if the hook were farther back on the body. Some of my biggest bass ever came off live 'gills fished this way, including my first bass over 7lbs. that was caught in Iowa, and my very first N.C. bass.

    I would agree with that. They are a great bass bait...W

    I too agree, except that I put the hook about an inch in front of the dorsal fin. Seems to result in more hook ups on Bass.
