Bluegill (Bream, Brim) Testimonials

Bill Shoopman – Montrose Wildlife Area, Missouri

Lure: Poc'it® Phenom®

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim)

The 5" Poc'it Phenom is my go to bait. The body of the worm holds up fish after fish and the tail has tantalizing action as it works it's way through cover and on the drop. I like to use several different colors (black/blueflake blue, junebug red, red black core)but the color I have been doing the best on lately is the black neon. Recently, I caught a nice 5 lb bass and a 6.5 lb bass plus several nice keepers with this color in a span of several hours. I like to use a 3/16 oz worm weight and Size 2 wide gap worm hook Texas rigged.

Caitlin Berchtold – Clayton, Delaware

Lure: 6" Phenom® Worm

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Almost Any Species

I've always used these lures, I even questioned an employee at Dick's Sporting Goods yesterday on why they no longer carry them. The other night some of the neighborhood boys were teasing me for using a rubber worm but a few minutes later I reeled in a 4lb largemouth bass which beat their 1/3 lb largemouth bass that they caught on a bobber with a minnow. Even a few nights ago I was fishing with one of these and the bass were going crazy for them, but not for what my 3 friends were throwing. I was the only one who brought in any fish that night. I absolutely love these lures and won't fish with anything else. I even just sent some to my boyfriend in the mail because he was asking me how I was always catching more fish than other people.

As a Fisheries Management major, as well as someone who works at an aquaculture facility, I endorse these lures 100%.

John Stone – Overland Park, Kansas

Lure: Blades

Fish Caught: Bass, Smallmouth - Bass, Striped - Bass, White - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White) - Pike, Northern - Walleye

I finally wore my first Electric Fisherman out after nearly 15 years. I actually bought a new Electric Fisherman as well as a Piranha electric knife 2 yrs ago. I just bought the Cuda 8" blade and am anxious to give it a go this spring. Comfort, strong, durable, and even after limits of several species it does not over heat.

James – Shoemakersville, Pennsylvania

Lure: VIE Shiner™

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim)

I got 18 bluegill, 2 crappies, and 4 largemouth bass in one hour of fishing using these Mister Twister VIE Shiner lures. I didn't even move them, just casted and they were engulfed.

James Shickles – ,ponds And Streams, Wisconsin

Lure: Sassy Shad®

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Rock - Bass, Smallmouth - Bass, White - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Catfish, Channel - Crappie (Black) - Perch, Yellow - Pike, Northern - Trout, Brown - Trout, Rainbow - Walleye

I started using Mister Twister Sassy Shads about four years ago and it never fails to catch fish I've caught more fish with these than all other baits combined. I don't even take my big tackle box with me any more, all I take is a plastic bag with two and a half and three inch sassy shads pearl white and black, a couple extra 1/16 and 1/8 oz. black lead jig heads and I know I'll catch fish. This is in my opinion the best lure ever devised!!!

Chameng Lee – Broomfield, Colorado

Fish Caught: Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White) - Perch, Yellow

Great lure to twitch under a bobber or on the bottom. Crappies and perch but have hit 3 lb bass on the too. Anything that sees it will basically hit it.

I use the Mister Twister 2" and 3" as well as the twin tail or double tail lures for a variety of fish on inland lakes and rivers in Grand Rapids and Detroit Michigan as well as lake Michigan on jumbo Yellow Perch. This is the most versatile lure in the world in my opinion. I have caught just about every freshwater fish that swims on this lure.

The new slogan for Mister Twister should be,and this primarily applies to the curly tail grubs.

"Mister Twister,The lure that catches fish without effort"

John – Whalen Lake, Hartland, Michigan

Lure: Lure Kit - 2-1/2 inch Sassy Shad®

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Rock - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White) - Perch, Yellow - Pike, Northern

The Sassy Shad, in all colors and sizes, is an incredible bait. This bait can pull a trophy from the water anywhere and anytime; it's dynamite. I have fished the Sassy Shad for years, and I will certainly continue to do so. Mister Twister, you nailed it.

Jeff – Souther California, California

Lure: Twister® Tail - 4" & 6"

Fish Caught: Bluegill (Bream, Brim)

One of my all time favorite lures, never have I ever used anything that has produced quite as good as the Twister Tail. I killed the panfish as a kid and now I am teaching my kids to do the same.

Rachel Miller – Drivers Creek Lake - Scottland Arkansas, Arkansas

Lure: Teenie™ - 2"

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie (White) - Sunfish (shellcracker)

In the small mountain lakes around the Ozarks the fish can be picky at best. I can always rely on my trusy little Teenies to catch the big ones!! Best colors I have found are the chartruce/blk line, brown orange tail and the limegreen yellow tail. When the fishing gets rough thats when I dig out the Teenies. Thanks Mr Twister!!!!

Gary Eckelberry – AEP Pond, Plainfield, Ohio

Lure: Lil' Bit™ - 1"

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim)

I used a chartruse Lil' Bit on a Bright Orange lead head Jig with the safety pin spinner. I caught 9.5" and 10" bluegill and some small (1.5 lb.) large mouth bass. They both seem to hit it after 1 or 2 cranks and then stop. They hit it during the fall of the lure. Big blue gill are very fine eating.

Gary Eckelberry – Pymatuning Lake, Andover, Ohio

Lure: Micro Crawfish™

Fish Caught: Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Perch, Yellow

Used th LA Craw on a 1/32 firetiger leafhead jig with a safetypin spinner. I was tossing it under pontoon boats that were docked and the big bluegills simply tore the little legs off of it. The color changed after being in the water for a while and it seemed to catch more after the legs/feelers changed color. Great bait.

Glenn Martin Miller – Freshwater Lake Hoptcong NJ , New Jersey

Lure: Exude™ Curly Tail Grubs

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Rock - Bass, Smallmouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Perch, Yellow

The surprise fish of an April ice-out perch fishing trip was a hawg largemouth on a tiny purple Exude grub. I use live bait and tip it with the Teenies.

Bull bluegills in spring took a liking to it also.

Lure: Lil' Bit™ - 1"

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Rock - Bass, Smallmouth - Bass, White - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Catfish, Channel - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White) - Musky - Perch, Yellow - Sunfish (shellcracker) - Walleye

The Lil' Bit is bar none the best item I have ever used for fishing on any body of water in my entire life. Before I started using the Lil' Bit, I had MANY days in which I didn't even get a nibble. Since that day I started using them, I have not had a fishless moment. Indeed the Lil' Bit may be small in size, but my 31 1/2 inch walleye landed recently didn't seem to mind at all! On those miserable days in which a cold front is upon you, I PROMISE the Lil' Bit won't let you down. As a fisherman who has succeeded in finding an alternative to live bait, I hope you found my testimonial useful!

Yet another amazing lure by Mister Twister!
Last year my dad and I decided we would try fishing for perch. After we got our equipment set, I set the minnow bucket in the water. Several minutes later I went to get a minnow and I noticed they were all gone! We were both upset thinking that because of a broken lid our fishing day would be ruined. Then I had an idea, I cut the tail off of the Exude grub and cast my line out to bottom fish. As unbelievable as it sounds, we almost limited out that day. To this day, the 1 inch Exude grub is the only lure I bother messing with. Why??? Obviously, I fish to catch 'em and the Exude grub easily allows me to do just that!

Greg Peterson – Private Pond, Sylvester, Georgia

Lure: Keeper™ Worm Hooks

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, White - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White)

I used the 2/0 Keeper hook for the past 10years. The hook handled a 10 lb. bass like a small fish. There is no other big fish hook out there for me. Keep up the good work.

Lure: Electric Fisherman™ Fillet Knife

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White) - Perch, Yellow - Pickerel - Pike, Northern - Walleye

It was the Minnesota Opener ,fishin was slow on our lake but managed to get one.My 16 yr. old duaghter asked if she could clean it, of course I said sure! We were ready to start but the Electric Fisherman just couldnt do it,I guess after 10 yrs or so it finally gave out, it had cleaned many many fish....we then had no choice but to use the ol' rapala,and to make a long story short my daughter informed me she was not cleaning fish for me again till I got a new Mister Twister Electric Fisherman, thanks for a great product!

Marc Morrone – Phillips Chain, Phillips, Wisconsin

Lure: Exude™ Curly Tail Grubs

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Rock - Bass, Smallmouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie (Black) - Musky - Perch, Yellow - Pike, Northern - Walleye

Exude grubs flat out catch everything that swims!!!!

Swim them on a jig or fish on a jig under a float. It's like having live bait in your tackle box, and without the "mess" of other scented baits.

Erich – Little St. Germain-Lake Nokomis-Wisconsin, Wisconsin

Lure: Teenie™ - 2"

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Rock - Bass, Smallmouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White) - Musky - Perch, Yellow - Pike, Northern - Sunfish (shellcracker) - Walleye

One of the best baits I've ver used. Without a minnow this bait will catch any sunfish or rock bass. With a minnow dipped at the end of the hook the number of fish that will bite your hook will greatly increase.

Charles Slone – Carr Creek Lake, Littcarr, Kentucky

Lure: Teenie™ - 2"

Fish Caught: Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Sunfish (shellcracker)

I caught bluegill and sunfish all day with this product. The best color is light green. I'm going to the shop to buy some more of these!

David Lind – Minong Flowage, Minong, Wisconsin

Lure: Micro Crawfish™

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie (Black) - Perch, Yellow

My fishing buddy and I found a few packages of the Micro Craw in one of those bins at the end of the aisle. The price was right, so we each picked a couple up. I threaded one on a 1/16th oz. pink lead-head jig, and tossed it out under a slip bobber. The bait didn't have time to settle before I saw the flash of the fish. 30 seconds later I had a 3/4 lb bluegill in the boat. Second cast was a repeat. As was the 3rd. And 4th. By the time I had my 5th gill in the livewell, my buddy had a Micro Craw on his hook, and joined in the fun. After 3-4 more fish, all the legs and claws were chewed off of my bait, so I threaded on another. We limited out, went home to clean fish and have a fish fry, but not before we stopped back at the store and cleaned them out of every last package of Micro Crawfish we could find. I never used live bait a single time last year.

Christian Cardona – Las Vegas, Nevada

Lure: Sassy Shad®

Fish Caught: Bluegill (Bream, Brim)

I used the chartreuse Sassy Shad for 5 years now,
it's the best river and stream bait I have ever used in my life!!!!
I caught striper, small and largemouth bass, bluegill,crappie, sunfish, mackerel, bullhead, bullfrogs even and last year I landed huge 5 pound rainbow trout with it on 2 pound line,
This is always in my tackle box, and it will stay there as long as I live!!!!

Gike Grand – Detroit, Michigan

Lure: Exude™ Trout Worm

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie (Black)

Long line trolling the bright yellow Trout Worm on a 1/16oz. jighead is a great way to locate schooling crappies on warm summer evenings. A 7-foot light to medium light action rod with a long cast spinning reel is good for both trolling and for casting at fish once they are located. Spool up with thin diameter braided line and a 2-3ft. leader of 2lb. fluorocarbon line. Also expect jumbo 'gills and largemouth bass.

David Jeon – Princeton, New Jersey

Lure: Nymph

Fish Caught: Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie (Black)

This is a great lure for slab crappie and monster bluegill. The most effective colors are chartreuse flake, and brown/yellow. Rig it on a 1/16 oz. jig head and vertical jig over structure, and hang on! The three tails wave up and down like tube, creating lots of action!

Bob Scarborough – Houston, Texas

Lure: Keeper™ Worm Hooks

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Perch, Yellow

The weighted worm is the Best.
I use them all the time, especially the smallest size.
It's great for finesse fishing from the bank with a 4" worm.
Works every time.
It's my GO TO bait. It catches panfish to bass.
Cut-Rate Tackle here in Houston used to have them.
I can't find them anywhere--Help a guy out, please.
The last ones I have are getting pretty worn,
I'm guarding them carefully.
Oh yeah, the Mepps Spinners are real fish catchers, panfish eat them up.

Bryon – Michigan

Lure: Micro Shad™

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Walleye

This is one of the best lures I've ever used. This lure has caught me more bluegill than any other bait. I've caught Black Crappie, BlueGill, Pumpkindseed, Perch, Smallmouth Bass, Largemouth Bass and Walleye. I fish this bait with a 1/32 Jig matching the color of the bait to the jig head. I use 6 lb. limp mono line like Trilene XL. The Black/Silver Micro Shad is a great all purpose color for lots of fish. Put these on and hold on because you could catch anything.
