I whipped up a couple of these "Bluegill Blades" for a trip to northern WI and did very well on Bass and a Pike. I had four Pike over 30". One was while I was on a remote no-named lake in a float tube. That was a blast. They like to try to get free by diving... INTO YOUR LEGS!!!
The water was warm up there this year and everything was deep. These blades fit in perfect. The weight is 5/8th ounce on this one. The single treble worked well. I never missed a thing. The bait was about 2 3/4" long so everything completely ate it. No Tail nippers.
I've noticed over the past couple years that small bluegills have become a forage base in some of these northern WI lakes. This worked out perfect.
