    I've heard that you can catch bluegill with dipbait, stink bait, ect.
    Can you really?
    If so what's the best for this?

    i never use that stuff, i find that bluegills love shrimp. you can by the "fresh frozen" shrimp at the store and use them. works good for me.

    for my trap(Whistlers trap) i use cat food, they love it, i tried dog food but didnt get nearly the same results as the cat food

    The best baits for gills hands down is small pieces of hotdogs and worms...

    Ive wondered the same thing,i was thinking you coud cut a small piece of a dip tub or a small piece of a loopers rig and put in on a small hook.Dont know if it would work or not but it couldnt hurt to try.I normally use just worms.

    Mac,

    I'm a dip/stink Bait user & I have been for some time now, But I'm here to tell ya "that would be one of the last things that I wound use to catch Bluegills".
    :confused2:
    Dip Baits are for Catfish - "Period"!!!!
    There are to many other ways to get Bluegills. If you do catch any gills on dip baits, those are some very,very,very desperate Gills.:0a14:

    Stick with using things like the members in the post above use like Worms, Crickets, small pieces of shrimp, Etc.........

    I seen a utube video of this. The guy was fishing with some kids. They was dipping a hook baited with worm in it. I feel the worm was what got the fish.

    Your Right BigBoy,

    I could be wrong but
    I thing that Bluegills feed mostly on "Site & Movement" Than they do on "Smell & Scent". :0a23:

    Use pieces of nightcrawler usually, but have caught some good size 'gills on chicken liver while fishing for channels.

    I like to use meal worms, maggots,roostertails,wax worms,nightcrawlers and many other baits. never tried dip baits for bluegills. They do sell this stuff at Wal-mart that's like the Berkley power bait for bluegills and other panfish never tried it though.

    The Berkley Gulp maggots work real well & are easy to use & store but the shrimp get the fastest bites.

    The last two weekends we caught a five gallon bucket full between us:wink:, using the shrimp.
