has anyone used the left overs from blue gill after they are filleted?
The heads are real good bait.:wink:
lol thanks we saved them the other day and going to try it hopely sunday
I love to keep all the guts out of my gill's/redear's and use them, also if the females have egg's use them, they're deadly.
Hope this helps,
I think I will keep the heads off of the bluegill next time my self.
Sounds like a good bait to me. Keep them fresh and they should work
They work real well! My wife and daughter where cleaning some gills, I took the heads and threw them on a hook. I hooked several big cats, but could not land them due to to light of gear.
let us know how you come out.maybe we can try the same thing
I keep the heads off of any small fish I fillet (bream, crappie, white bass, etc.). If you are going fishin' a day or two after you clean them, then the heads should be ok in the fridge till then. You could also vacuum seal them or put them in ziploc bags and freeze them to use later in the winter. Good luck fishin'.
cant keep or use any part of a game fish but i keep and freeze all my gill heads.i also keep all my creek chubs that die while im fishing.
last weekend when fishing on the Colorado river at Yuma.... we were primarily using live gills for bait..... in the morning, my bait tank had been turned off and we were without the live bait..... I did fillet several and tried it for a bit while making some new bait..... it seems that as long as it is fresh, that it would leave a scent trail and attract some fish..... our main attraction for fishing was flatheads and the live bait is what I believe that they are more attracted to given the choice.....however, we had some mackeral, and sardines which got some stripers to hit...... we wanted the bigger cats and stayed with the live bait.....
thanks for all the in put but didnt make it out this weekend but will post when we go i put them in the freezer so i hope they will still be good:sad2:
Live bluegill at Santee Cooper are deadly but we use the heads with good success too. I've caught some monsters on Bluegill heads on Lake Marion.
