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.

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      Hi, I’m looking for a fresh report for this weekend. Thanks in advance! Good Fishing!

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      Thanks Cliff. I am coming up for my week of paradise tomorrow as well.

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.
    • gimruis
      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.
