    a nice sized pond.fish were ice cold.they were hitting live blugill,alot of times people think of bass when it comes to ponds,na find a pond that has broken trees all around it,the key is bluegill cut or live,ponds u might catch some on stink,liver,but not all the time,in a pond bluegill is main food souce for bass and catfish,honestly another method, the good old bobber and worm,throw it up in the sticks,i mean in the sticks,its ruff but u will get them.and u dont have to set bobber deep like a foot and a half.JMOanyway.o and with the bluegill dont focus on the middle of the pond throw that bluegill up by the sticks or under brush hanging over.

    Bluegill are legal, you just have to catch them with hook and line. You cannot catch them in a net like you do shad and use them as bait. That goes for any game fish. If it is considered a "game" fish then they have to be caught by hook and line.

    They also have to come out of the same water you are fishing in......And if on a lake with a size limit (there are a few) they best be in the range to keep......
