    Does anyone know the setup I need to use for Bluegill? I've been fishing lake Johnson with no luck.

    I know right... Lol I catch them by accident while bass fishing with huge lures... If ya try to fish for them specifically with live bait, ya don't catch any. Lol

    I think the bluegill is really screwed up in this sim. Bluegills have small mouth and the usually roam suspended in shallow waters close to weed. The best technique is float fishing with the snallest possible hook (#20 here) preferably at sunrise or sunset. But that's real Life. Here... I haven't caught any yet. And I saw a guy saying he got one with big bass lure (very umprobable in real life)

    I caught 2 blugills at a cove just south of the standard pier you spawn at. Well... no bites with live bait... then I switch to a 5 inches sinking lure and I caught them. The devs should do more research about real fish behavior... a long road ahead before they can call it fishing "sim". It looks more like an arcade game about catching fish...
