    Default Glowing ice lures

    Does anyone use glow lures or water activated lights and what do you think about them?

    Yep, I've seen the action pick up after switching to them now and then.

    Yep I use them. Are they better than other non glow lures? I can't say as I haven't used them enough to be certain. However, they do catch fish. It is my understanding they are most beneficial for fishing really deep water. Most of my ice fishing is seldom more than 30 feet of water and I don't know if water clarity is really dark enough there to make a difference one way or the other.

    They work good. Wrap them in a piece of tin foil and give em a camera flash.

    +++1!!!!!!! You can buy the camera flash's from any camera store and they work great for "boosting" the glow jigs.

    Thumbs up Glow lures

    They work GREAT especially right at first light and evening . I have a camera flash made for charging them. It is available at Sportsman's warehouse.
    They are charged by any kind of light. The light excites the electrons or something like that and that makes them glow.You can even buy the Glow paint and tape. Most lures I use I just buy already painted this way. They can be recharged indefinetly. The glow will usually last several minutes.
    They used to make a spoon lure that used a small chemicaly activated glow stick.Break the inner capsule to start the Glow. The Luma Lure I believe they were called.they had slots for the glow stick. Hard to find nowadays and I never had much luck with them. The glow sticks would last several hours and then you had to replace them.

    darned right they work. send one down to a 25-30 ft. hole where a rogue burbot layeth dormant......and watch this lil glow n the dark jig with a piece of hooly or herring get inhaled.

    They work great, just make sure to recharge them regularly. As far as light down the hole (or on the ice), it is an attactant to baitfish.
