1. dead stick bait or lure?
2 dead stick hook size?
3. bobber or not?
4. indicator or not ?

other tips.  thanks

Ice_Fly_Guy:
I've not had success deadsticking bluegills.  Seems like they take a peck and it's just pure luck if they keep it long enough to set on them.  In my opinion, the juice ain't worth the squeeze.  If I was to try, I'd go with a tiny tungsten with a single spike.  Maybe it would be small enough for them to keep it in the mouth for a second or two.

Tipupguy:
I would use a jig rod with a ul spring bobber small tungsten with mousies

hardwater diehard:
A tip down would be a better choice .. scaling down with a small hook and a wax worm or minnow ..or a a rod ..small jig head and small minnow on a tip down rod holder

I will be mounting this version on my bucket this season

Yes.     Perhaps the goal should be  is for them to swallow the bait. eg like 2 spikes on a 14 bare hook within a split shot 6 above.  ??
