First of all, let's start with your verbiage. They are called bream down here and there is not really such a thing as a 'lure'. Down here, it is just like Coke. EVERYTHING is Coke, then you specify what type, i.e. Sprite, Dr. Pepper, Root Beer and so on. There is no lure, it is 'bait'. And that/those baits are worms, crickets, tube jigs, beetle spins etc.
Some prefer crickets to worms but those are the 2 most common. If you want to target chinquapin/shellcrackers you want to use worms although crickets will sometimes work. Personally, I prefer worms as they are more durable and allow for multiple fish per worm.
As for just wanting to have fun, my favorite is a beetle spin with a black/chartreuse tube jig.

Please understand that the first part of this reply is just me messing with you and was not meant as an attack or meant to degrade you in any way.

What area are you looking at fishing? That will really tell what method you should use

Where are you from? They are very well called 'bluegills' down here in South Louisiana. Maybe north or LA they are called 'bream' but I have NEVER heard anyone refer to them as that.
Also, we do use the arm 'lures' but we also say 'baits' or 'jigs'

Before you correct someone next time, make sure you understand there are no correct way of saying something down here.

Bluegills can be found in any freshwater body of water anywhere in Louisiana, you just have to fish for them. Depending on the time of year will improve your odds. They LOVE night crawlers, and crickets. Jigs work when they are stacked up.

Buck - easy there hoss. I was just jerking his chain. I even told him that.
As for the term bluegill, I have been fishing 40 years, and had camps in Henderson and Verret. Never before have I heard people talk about the bluegill they catch. Never have I been asked if the bluegill were biting or anything else about bluegill. Look at all the posts on this site and see how many times someone posts pics or a report about 'bluegill'. Read Joe Macaluso's report in the Thursday Advocate, he will not give tips on where to catch bluegill.
Again, I was just poking the OP and actually let him know I meant nothing by it. Chill brother...

I have several gum trees in my yard. I will get all the caterpillars I can and use them as chum. When I get to a spot, I will throw 10-12 in the water, if bream start eating them, I will pick up my fly rod. I throw a popping bug with a 16-18 leader. Tied to the other end of that leader is a Bream Killer. The popping bug floats, bream killer sinks. Have caught tons of doubles this way.
Good thing with the caterpillars is if you throw them out and nothing eats them, you move on until you find a sizable bed.

This service may be needed if you have an overgrown tree that needs trimming so which structures below don't get damaged from falling branches or when limbs break off during storms.

In the winter, ice fishermen frequently pursue bluegill fishing. For catching bluegill under the ice, wax worms and mealworms work well as live bait. Using little scoops, fake flies, and small hooks, you can catch a lot of bluegill during ice fishing. Almost all of the country's waters are home to bluegill, although farm ponds, where fishing pressure is lower, seem to produce the biggest fish.
