I've had good success on this lure called the Worm Rival Spin from K&E tackle. Here's a pic of a couple of the colors that I've used with pretty good success. I've also caught quite a few sunfish on 1/16th ounce hand tied jigs as well. For me the jigs with small hooks, like size 6 or 8 work better for obvious reasons and I usually add a chunk of cut fish, a crappie nibble, or a worm. But by far my favorite bait for gills are chunks of nightcrawlers or worms that I find under some rocks and flower pots on the side of my house fished on a number 8 hook.

Worms and wigglers for me.

Once I took bankers advice on upping the hook size and the amount of worm on the hook, the size went up of the fish

My own hand poured plastics:








Leland's Crappie Magnet:



Hybrid lures using a candle flame and the parts of two different lures:



Gary Yamamoto Kut Tail Worm


These are only a few multi-species lures that I can always count on regardless the water temperature or lake.

I don't know about sunfish but for fresh water Reds it was a Chartreuse Jig on a down rigger.

I have a lot of luck jigging with Gulp! minnows on a 1/64 or 1/32 oz. jig head and freelining Gulp! waxies using the slow fall as my action. Jigging catches the bigger ones and freelining catches 'em all.

I use live maggots except in the heat of summer.
Nighcrawlers in the summer.
