I have a question about hook type/size for bluegill. I want to make sure I'm using the correct setup and new to fishing for gills, as you can see.
I have some plain shank and Aberdeen size 6 and 8 hooks. Is this what I should be using? A few weeks back, I used the dried bacon fat tip and I could see the gills coming over to the bait and trying to take it. However, only one could actually take the hook to where it could be reeled in. Not sure if it was due to the size of the bluegills, hook, or both. I'm wanting to take my 6 year old son out for some bank fishing, but want to have the right equipment first.
Feel free to post a link/photos of the hooks you recommend.
Thanks for the help!
