    Sleekcraft, I'm not sure about using a sabiki rig for bluegill. You might ask BigG. He's a sabiki master!

    I don't think a Sabiki is the answer. They work well with schooling bait fish in open water. Most bluegill stick to the cover, and they aren't as aggressive, as say, school of mackerel. I've never tried a trap for bluegill or sunfish, but that may be a better solution. I also don't think a Sabiki rig is legal where you fish.

    I don't think they work well with gills. I tried it once in a spot where they were tearing up nightcrawlers and didn't get a single hit.

    I would use a trap. It would be the second best way next to ultra lite rod and reel. I just prefer catching them on rod and reel because it is fun. I use a trap for small bluegill and it works great. I put it out and an hour later there is plenty of bluegill in there for a day of fishing. That is in a lake that the blue gill are over populated though. They just stocked some walleye in there to eat up some of the blue gill.

    I think it's like any thing else, depends on the day and conditions. Sometimes they work pretty good off a dock, or other structure you can release straight down, other times it's worms or traditional jigs. Just gotta offer it up and see what they like that day.

    You should check your fishing regulations before using sabiki rigs or a cast net to catch any game fish I know it is illigal here in Indiana
