Glow Rapalas?


Recommended Posts

Have they ever made them? Or have you painted one with a glow color?

The current In-Fisherman has an article on night fishing salmon with glow trolling tackle. They list several plugs and spoons and flies that glow, but nothing by Rapala.

Rebel, made by Pradco,makes some very nice jointed stick baits in several different colors that will glow! They have designed these plugs specifically for salmon fishing. Personally, I think they are superior to Rapala's.

sounds crazy, but you should also try painting a rapala black - and use it at night! caught a 25" eye on leech lk that way...

A few of us painted several in Glow and in Pearl White, 2 summers ago. As stated before, some of the ones we didn't like the color on, some that were found and some that were just plain cheap. I haven't really had a good chance to try them myself, but some of the ones my buddies painted, they came back with good reports. We based our painting on reports from a buddies dad who lives ON the Rainy. Pearl White WAS only available in Canada until a local bait shop owner brought back a few cartons. Sold out in a few days, just word of mouth. The problem with painting the Glow is they get REAL thick and heavy.

Painting them yourself is certainly more economical. If you arent into doing it yourself, there are a couple of guys on EBay that sell them. A guy I work with bought a few of them and they didnt look too bad.

Just get some glow paint and design your own sticks. Or just touch up old ones that you dont like the color on.
