"I use my sonar just like I do when I'm bass fishing. Bluegills show up like little round balls rather than hooks. When you take a hard look at your screen and realize what you're looking at, they're pretty easy to find." Ouachita has deep hydrilla and milfoil, and Davis begins there. If the lake level is high, he says, he'll start trolling on the inside edge of the grass on a long point while watching his sonar screen. When he marks the bluegill balls, he'll toss out a floating buoy and drop the live cricket. His simple rig consists of a ¼-ounce drop-shot sinker with a cricket hook about 12 feet above the weight. Crappie stake beds, brush piles, rocks, or stumps on long points, or standing timber in open water, are a bonus, Davis says. Bass anglers who plant brush piles unwittingly feed his addiction to summer bluegills. Bass and bluegills are in the sunfish family, so the two species inhabit similar territories.
