Do y'all have success throwing bluegill swimbaits during the bluegill spawn or after?

I have a big, hinged bluegill swim bait. I've used it a few times with mixed results. So...I'm gonna see what the pros have to say.

Mattlures, both the soft Ultimate Bluegill and the Hardgill versions, are two of the most productive baits I throw. Those baits have produced several large bass for me so I have at least one version tied on every virtually every trip.

They were crushing a Megabass Magdraft yesterday in the ayu color with just a small amount of the tail dipped in chartreuse. The 5 and 6" versions were working especially after I dipped the tail to mimic the bluegill I was seeing.

In the same areas you would find spawning bass?

Yes. Anyplace a gill or shad can swim will be a good place to try one.
