Homemade Bluegill Dough Bait
Here is a video of a guy that has a pretty good system for making his own dough bait to add a little scent and flavor to his bluegill rigs. I am a big fan of prepared baits and have added Berkley's Crappie Nibblets to any soft plastic without scent already impregnated into them. I have had great success with this addition to these types of baits and use quite a bit of the product. After watching this video, I may even try my hand at making a few scents of my own to see if I can improve the bite.
Give it a try. Looks like it is fairly easy and may save you some money. Who knows, you may discover the next gotta have scent to use for big bluegill.
