    Hey bro, check this section of the forum out...

    bluegills are hardy and will live days if you care for them by keeping the water changed or filtered and fresh. I keep gills in a rubbermaid tote with a hang on the back fishtank filter for days on end... when I go out in my small boat that don't have a circulating livewell I take a pot to dip out and change half the water with every hour to keep 'em fresh and lively.... water changes and keepin' them out of the hot sun while fishing... also watch what gets on your hands and insect repellent spray.

    on a rig setup... Use a Carolina Rig and an 8/0 gamma circle hook...
    Hook you gills in the tail closest to its back fin. and i would recomend you go to walmart and buy a cheap airatior to keep the gills alive... I think a bubble box is $8. and that will keep your gills alive long enough for a night of fishing.. and if you choose to use them longer just change out the water like Dr.Pepper said

    Anyone wondering what "Kaw Point" is, it's our boat ramp / park near downtown Kansas City. I'm not sure if Charlie knows he posted under Indiana, but he did post the same question in the Kansas and Missouri sections.
