One old fellow told me he has the best luck taking old Rattletrap lures, roughing up the surface,then painting them shiney black. I tried it with no luck whatsoever.

I don't want to sound like a smart-azz, but you put them in there to control the bluegill population..........use bluegills. I actually use a lot of small 'gills for striper and hybrid bait.

All the bluegills small enough for them to eat in the pond seem to be gone or I would try a gill. All the gills that are left are 9"-10" range which is what I was going for. The wipers are eating the smaller ones and the flatheads are eating the larger ones. Slowly the bluegill population drops getting the pond back to a reasonable number of bluegills with out having to poison the whole pond or having to do major work trying to remove many of the bluegills. Last summer the bluegills had gotten so bad that they were attacking crankbaits the biologist estimated there were approximately 10,000 bluegills in a pond that should only hold maybe 5,000. The problem with the wipers is now there is 65 of them in there and they are 16-20 inches. From the research I've done a good number is approximately 10-20 per acre so about 15-30 in this pond. So I need to get some of them back out or they are going to starve to death and possibly most of them would end up dying instead of leaving about half still alive.

What about a bluegill-style crank bait?

The wiper has a fairly short life expectancy, maybe eight years max. What happens if you just wait them out?

I can go to the store today and get a couple different "bluegill" crankbaits and see if they produce anything.

AC You could always M80 em out. The percussion will KO them long enough to net em. Not kill em.

I'm about ready to give up on these fish. My bluegill came back from out of no where and now the wipers are swimming in schools with the bluegill.

They are swimming with the bleugills because that is how stripers/wiper operate. They follow the bait fish around and let them get comfortable with them being there. Then the wipers will get hungry and go on a feeding frenzy. Later you'll see them peacefully swimming along with the bait again.

I may have the weekend of the 14-15 open right now. It has traditionally been good by that time. I haven't had a chance to get out yet. Playing farmer, and messing with the calves, and a major boat renovation (including a new t-top) has kept me busy so far this spring. I'll go get some scouting in before you come.
