Decided to take a page out of the fly fisherman's playbook. Gills love runner legs.

LOL @ don't let JMoe see these. I caught fish on one of them last week, but my buddy used one without the rubber legs and also caught fish, so i can't say they made a difference that day. I just know from fishing with a fly rod over the years that bluegills are attracted to baits with rubber legs.

You have a point there. hmmm Sunnies do love insects with long legs. Grasshoppers,crickets,mayflies,etc. thumb

Sunfish baits for sure. I have my best results using flies with long legs!

Beetle bodies with rubber legs are as classic for bream as cane poles and bobbers. It's breamin' tradition and glad to see it is still alive. Nice baits FTID. Try the "X" pattern with the rubber legs when you get a chance. Tends to have a much flatter, slower fall.
