15 posts in this topic

Hi all, I am wondering what is the best glo lite. I am using a Lund white lite and my husband is using a Tazer blue lite. What is the best and why?

I think they all work ok, some are better thrn others. But I agree with mnhunter, the cheaper!! They seem to find a way down the hole with me.

Since you are from Chisholm, go to the L & M in Hibbing and at their check-out counters they have a nine LED flashlight for under $2 that works awesome. Runs on three AAA batteries and since it is LED it runs for a long time. Very bright light and compact.

Thanks for all the info. I will still use the one I have. You could try using one of the strech cords you get form a casino to attach to you glo lite. They work great for us, as you can attatch the to something so if it falls in you can still get it. Thy attatching it to your shirt of jacket.

One of the best lights I've found for charging jigs was at a garage sale an was an old Minolta camera with a strobe flash holy smokesdose that thing light them up, but if you take a direct hit in the eyes from the flash you might as well take a nap cause you wnt be seeing anything for awhile. Boar

I have been using my old Minolta flash for charging glow stuff for several years. But no longer since the Upper Red Lake Triangle decided it wanted it more than me and made it jump out of my hand and into the hole. The next morning I took my camera and saw it comfortably resting on the bottom. No way to retrieve it though. \:\(

I have always attached the glo lite, my forceps, and clipper to a Northland lanyard that I put around by neck. You could use a shoe string or any other material for that matter. Everything is attached so nothing is going down the hole. It works good and is always at my disposal. Good luck, hang on. Bill

I kill 2 birds with one stone and use an led flashlite so my glow charger was free! I don't think I've charged anything glow this year outside of just 1 particular day on the ice, and this would be out of about 30 trips onto the LOTW ice sheet this season so far since Dec 1. That particular day I tried the red glow folks speak so highly of, hmmmmmm....I caught 1 Walleye right away, fished with it for another 1/2 hour without a nibble then 2 back to back rather large Burbot....Enough with that color for the day and probably for the season! Has been a good color for me on URL years past for them Slabbers though.

This year the Perch/FT gold back AEjr has been 9 outta 10 go to on Jig stick. Deadstick exact same color in a 1/16oz Frostee. Last year I ran Pink and White pretty steady all season. So give me Perch/FT, P&W, and of course straight Golds and I'm usually good to go. I'm thinking maybe the Red Glo that folks like so much is maybe better on the eastside for the deep and sometimes oh so shy basin Saugers maybe? I don't doubt folks with their reports on that color but speaking with ccmonsr a couple weeks back and then SRJ yesterday we kinda pretty much agree on that red glo thing and the 3 of us all fish the pond fairly often.

Quick question. How long are the AEjr's? Compared to the bigger size? I just got some in the mail today, and they are bigger than I expected.(1 5/8 inches) I thought they sent me the wrong size? or are these the jr's? Thanks

      How big are the hooks you're using, wookie?   Make sure they're big enough, especially if you're using big minnows.    I also use heavier line than most people (10 lb flouro) on our rattle reels so I can set the hook with a bit of gusto without worrying about breaking off.  I might get a few less bites than my friends using 4 lb or 6 lb test, but in the long run I bet we both get the same number of fish on the ice.

        Lighten up Francis!  LOL!  It was a blanket statement.  We see it all the time.     If you wanna get away from Sillytown, keep on fishin!

      I have read that mercury levels are a reason there is no commercial harvest on vermilion. But it was probably the same thing you read as I have not found a second source of that. There is commercial harvest of rustys on other Minnesota lakes so there must be a reason it's not done here.    For or what it's worth, the DNR has suggestions on how much fish to eat because of mercury.
