Glass Jigs

Question

mudman

I thought I saw someone post about glass jigs that hold a glow charge for 20 min or something like that.

Does anyone know?

Yes. I bought a couple of them in Baudette once at Log Cabin Bait. I thought they were kind of neat. They were clear, with a drop of glow paint in the center about the size of a pea or a little smaller. I used them a few times, but was not impressed. I went back to my forage minnow instead.

Mudman-

These are the glass jigs that people have been talking about.

I think I picked them up a couple years ago and didn't really notice a difference. I gave them a good shot on URL and my good old Phelps glow tube still produced more.

I can tell you that the paint on mine doesn't glow anymore.

The glass jigs glow very bright, but stop glowing pretty quick when in cold water. Not the best glow jigs in the world.

I said the very same thing not to long after they came out and everyone here thought I was crazy. They work great if they are nice and warm (like sitting inside the house in the tackle box) but in cold water they quit glowing very quickly.

ya there no good - i had a few and the all broke - not the glass but the glass and paint seperated so now all i have is a plain hook with some glow paint on the end. the smaller ones float with no bait on them.

I've used these on occasion with mixed results. At Lake of the Woods they never did a thing for me, but on URL last weekend they were the best thing in the box for those big slabs.

      Well that gets you out of making lunch, but not getting unstuck! 😊

      You got that right!  I don’t fish Vermillion but have always liked reading the posts.  Log in issues or not, I hope he decides to get back in the swing of things here.   Again, not a big V fisherman but I’m gonna check my calendar for the weekend of the kids event and maybe throw my hat in to help if I can.  I can at least get some lines wet if pointed in the right direction.

      @leech~~ did buy me a steak dinner at the Ely steakhouse when I took him lake trout fishing several years ago.  He’s not without his charities. 🙂

      Hey @leech could I put you in charge of bringing the beverages, snacks and food? Maybe even bring a little table to set it all up on like a buffet style 😂
    • leech~~
      Where?  Just so I can help next time? 😁

      You were a big help today I really appricetate it. I’ve fished that same area at least one a week for the last month. Every time from 1-6pm. Haven’t had a terrible trip yet every time I get a lot of nice gills. The first time I tried that bite I got a few nice crappies and a 17” walleye. Last night fished again and kept 6 nice gills and threw back a lot of good ones to and got I a 21” walleye. It’s a sunset bite for sure then after dark if you hang around long enough the crappies bite to. But it’s hard to stay out last 6pm when it’s this cold trying to heat the portable can become hard even with a good heater. Glad to hear you guys had some luck I’ve heard that area is good but I’ve never tried it. Haha another buddy who always fish’s in the cold told me I was crazy for going out. Well look you did well the last two days......😂. Good luck to you tommarow!

      Thanks for the shout out; glad to help!  I was heading back out to jump start my brothers diesel and saw you get stuck.  Needed to get my bro’s truck going first.  Saw you were in the same spot and knew a little help would go a long way in that rutted mess out there.   You had a good catch for the afternoon. 😎  We were in that area Friday night but after the bite was over.  Got some but not that good.  Had a nice evening crappie bite to the east last night.  A few pike this morning before pulling up stakes.     Gonna head north I think tomorrow.  But it sounds like I’m the only one willing to brave the weather.

      Thanks to Wanderer (Tracy) for extracting me from a sticky situation 🤦‍♂️. It was also nice to finally meet you in person!! I think you need to start a weekend towing business lol. I had a buddy of mine and his dad come out and check and make sure I was okay after you left. Fishing was pretty good I got 8 gills all around 8” and 1 crappie 9”. Dad came out and got 5 gills. We stayed till 6:15pm and I was able to make it off the lake no problem.
