Glow sights (update) - recommendations

10 posts in this topic

I checked the archive for old posts on the glow sights and thought I'd check back to see if opinions have changed. Has anyone anything good/bad to say about them? Thanks!

I've fo0und them to work well but only for turkeys & deer.As for waterfowl I do not like them.I have trouble keeping the bird in my sights as I start to swing the gun.BUT that's just me.

I also like them for turkey and deer hunting. But don't use them for anything else.

I had one on my Winchester a cuople years ago, it was handy for that first half hour before sunrise, but after that they serve no purpose. I just point and shoot anyway as opposed to aiming and shooting.

I tried one and coulnt hit anything, took it off any started hitting again. I actually shoot better with no bead on my barrel at all.

I have Easyhit Fiber optic beads on my shotguns and would highly recommend them. They are held on with adhesive tape and low profile. I had them on for a few years now and through just about any environment imaginable and they are never came off. They cost around 20-25 $ and well worth it. Happy Hunting Brian

If you're talking about fiber optic sites I have them on my muzzle loader & my 870 slug barrel. I really like them in low light, but even in general they're finer than the original slug barrel sights, so I shoot better with them. I've never used them for bird hunting.

I use a magnetic one that I can change colors on and to different guns. I use it for the morning and It really helps for the fast flying early ducks. I would suggest them.

My advise...If you are focusing on your "bead"....you will loose your lead. Always focus on your target and let your mind and gun do the rest.

Looking at the barrel stops your swing. Use a gun that fits, see the target and you will be more successful!

i love my green tru glo for ducks/geese/pheasants/doves.....it is wicked bright on the darkest of mornings, and I seem to do quite good with it.

on the other hand, my brother's glo sight just fell off his gun and the bead is gone too...but he can shoot geese better than I can (at least lately) so there ya go...good shooters will succeed with or without a glo sight...i don't know if i would have ever bought one, but i got mine as a gift and i like it

S.A.

      No idea the brand, it's an 8 inch, it's in good shape needs a sharpening I would imagine.  Haven't used it for a couple years

      Hey guys heading up to the canadian side in a few weeks just wondering when fishing over rocks what works better 1/4 or 3/8 for jigs to stay out of the rocks?

      7/20 day 6 Today was was the feast day. Spending most of the day hanging on shore visiting and eating the weeks catch of fish for lunch and burgers and salads for supper.  Some water time for the kids and the wife.  Avas' parents also drive up to spend the evening around the fire.  It was quite the family affair.   Fishing today was targeted towards finding the big panfish for my folks to catch.  This plan was an utter failure.  Both boats out this evening and no one could find the panfish!  Frustrating to say the least. I decided late in the evening to go back after walleyes to try and put the folks on some fish.  I ended up boating only 1 northern 20", Dad landed a 18", 17", and 14" walleye, while mom boated a 14" walleye, and 2, 8" bluegills.  Not bad for a fall back plan the last hour and a half.   7/21 day 7   Today was a day to say goodby to My folks and the borther and sister inlaw.  As well as to start to sad action of packing up and being ready for our trip back home early the next morning. Our late afternoon was interupted by a nice strong thunderstorm that would rattle cabins, dump a ton rain, and light a couple of trees on fire around the lake from lightning strikes!  Also leaving us without power for 7 hrs.  It was a good storm. With the kids off to a movie, and the in laws on shore with boat.  It was just me off to lake for one last fishing outing after the storm.  With only a little over an hour fish i hit our standard walleye spot.  With old faithful providing me with two small walleyes 12" and 14".  The darkness came and fishing for the week was over.

      I was to Graceton a couple of times and saw the boats but never saw the fish. I really like that are but missed it this year. Bouncers in reeftops is hot as heck right now. Lemms was loaded with big biters yesterday. Good plan. I have been jigging out in the mud, more and more fish out deep every day. Good luck

      Hey Curt, not me. But I might get over that way tomorrow as I'm coming up this afternoon. Depending on the wind, I hope to go reef hopping pulling bouncers rather than trolling. I'm curious if the big school is still sitting over east of LP, more or less in front of the Graceton cut. It was a big bunch of fish. A week or so of stable weather would sure be nice. The only  time the wind seems to blow from the same direction for more than a day is if it is somewhere out of the north.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.
