I fish for gills with rattle buckshots all the time. Also use Hali jigs, forage spoons and demons. My favorite is the buckshot though, but I always replace the treble with a dropper chain with a single hook or size 18 treble. They are so heavy on the rod it makes it incredibly easy to see the bite.

Small silver Hali and a couple spikes on the dropper hook...

Hali is a definite go to. I use the littler ones with a mini bobber on the hook. usually plucks gills right out.

1/16th silver or gold hammered slender spoon with the treble switched out to a single hook dropper. I tie the dropper with 2lb Flouroclear and don't use a chain.

got to use the Clam pinhead minnow this year and man, in the smallest size that spoon is a gill killer. it's been a long time since i've had such aggressive strikes through the ice.

I like the Northland forage spoons, and like others have mentioned, I like a slender spoon or something of the like that will search out to the side of the hole, but with a dropper line and a #14 ice fly on the business end.

My favorite spoon for bluegill is a 1/16th ounce slender spoon.
prefer a dropper single hook so your not digging out three hooks to get back to fishing.
spikes are all i carry for live bait.
