Glass Jigs?

Question

Fish-n-Freak

I thoought there was a string on these -- but, I couldn't find it?

Just bought another handful, and talked to the manufacture directly -- met him at Angler's Paradise on Hwy 10, dropping off another supply -- these jigs are really something! The glow last forever and the very light weight delivers a very natural presentation. They come in a bunch of colors. Green, yellow, Pink, Red, Purple and Orange in about 4 or 5 sizes.

Can't wait for the weekend!

Yes... there was a post, but it "disappeared". I bought some from Vados in Spring Lake Park. Got home and did an un-scientific test on their glow capabilities. End result?
Versus ALL of my glow stuff (weell, one of each), these jigs blew them away. 1 hour after, there still was a noticeable glow from these things. Red seemed to fade the fastest, green glowed the brightest, and blue glowed the longest. Can't wait to try them out.

Hey fella's. I think the reason the thread gets hosed is because your advertising products that aren't forum sponsors. In all fairness to the people that support this thread, you can't be pointing people in other directions. Talk to this guy and have him help sponsor this site.

Labrat,
All they are called so far are "glass jigs", they are made by a couple of guys and they have been trying to get them into as many bait shops as they can. But at a price of $4.59 not all bait shops are willing to carry them.

I told the guy about this site, I hope he will contact Rick and set-up an add with the site or better yet add his product to the FishingMN store!

Currently I know they have them at Angler's Paradise, Vado's and Capra's.

The hubby was out in search of these jigs today. He bought a few and his brother practically cleaned out Anglers Paradise. They then went to Vados, they had them but were smaller. He then went to a store in St. Francis and found some there (I didn't get the name of the store). The guy at Anglers Paradise told the hubby that they would glow for an hour and a half. I can't wait to try them.

I tried the URL last weekend. They worked pretty good... but not good enough to justify $4.50!! But that was just one time using them... this weekend they will see some action on local lakes.

      So dad, my bro, n I started fishing at 4pm last Sunday (crane). We caught 21 eyes, 4 sauger, n a 10in. Perch. We were fortunate enough that 12 eyes, 2 saugers n the perch were keepers. We also had the pleasure of throwing back two 18", a 22" and a 24" eye. We ended up fishing  for 5 hours. There were 2 thing we noticed that affected r fishing. (A) the lack of water ment lack of current which is fundamental the first 3 weeks of opener. (B) we seen 14+ eyes surface as well as 6-7 mayflies in the boat. Getanet I hate 2 state the obvious but from my quick look at kab u weren't even close to a spot I would think would be good this time of year. The best 4 types of spots the first 3 weeks of eyes opener in vnp r current, current, current, n sand. I've never fished kab this time of year but I know Sullivan bay/ash river is the best spot.

      I used to fish the City lakes quite a bit many years ago.  Calhoun was a go to for me to have a fun bass fishing day.  I can’t tell you how things are now but back then (1990’s) I’d not only expect numbers but at least one 5 lbr each outing.  My best from there was 6lb 4oz caught on a 10 inch black/blue Power Worm.  We used Carolina Rigged lizards as our second best bait.  We lost some of those to the muskies though. Lake of the Isles was not as good to us but had more interesting Muskie stories than Calhoun did.   Heck, is it even called “Calhoun” anymore?

      On our way up for the weekend.  Live or frozen shiners?   Best place to get them?  thanks

      Any reports from Frazier bay at all? I’m thinking of making a run in my little boat the narrows. I’m itching to catch some walleye for the frying pan and think heading east may be my best bet but want to see if there’s any info out there before I make the 45 minutes trip!

      Saturday opener was great on Basswood for 3 of us.  Well, bitter sweet.  We brought 10 fish home; but due to the slot of only 1 over 20 inches we had to let 10 fish go.  Some  big eyes that afternoon

      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..
