If you want the "best" sunfish bait on earth IMHO, then just order someREAL
maggots. I get mine from speedyworm.com. $11 a thousand.
Worth every cent. They last in the refrigerator for many weeks. They go
into a dormant state at around 34-36F and will not pupate. Take them out
of the fridge and they start wiggling in a couple of minutes. You just take
what you need for the day and leave the rest in the fridge.
Put 3 or 4 of them on a #6 wire hook. I usually get 2 or 3 fish before
I have to rebait. Maggots are quite durable on the hook. They are
very "clean" to use, much more so than earth worms.
I start getting an uneasy feeling when my maggot supply gets low. https://youtu.be/j4pDPQTxTv0
