Best panfish lures

When fishing for panfish such as bluegill, sunfish, crappie or yellow perch, the type of fishing lures you are using is essential. The ability of your lure to mimic in size, shape and movement the bait of the panfish is the key to your success.


Bluegill fishing lures

Experienced anglers know that natural baits work excellent with bluegill. However every angler will tell you that using a small fishing lure can be very productive and often more successful than the natural bait. This aggressive and territorial fish will bite on almost anything that is mobile and shiny, no matter where you fish them. In a range of different lure type, minnow have shown to be the best fishing lures for crappie, bluegill and other panfish.


Ultra light minnows make the perfect panfish and crappie lures

These crankbaits are often considered at top of their game when it comes to panfish. They are ideal in imitating a wounded minnow. This makes them very interesting and alluring for crappie or bluegill. The sizes recommended are 2, 3 and 4-inch depending on a panfish you want.

The 2-inch minnow crankbait is ideal when fishing for bluegill in open water, but It can also excel just above the weeds. Besides their enticing wobbling and rolling action, mini crankbaits emulate the minnows in patterns and colors, making them completely nature-like and attractive to the fish.


Using minnow crankbaits for bluegills, crappies, and perch will also help you cover larger water surface more quickly and you can avoid the little fish that easily come after the live baits. It is no doubt that these lures are a perfect choice for panfish baits.
