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.

      How is it going today

      Carp30, Vermilion is starting into the fall transition period now that the water is cooling down. The bite can be either great or tough during this period. Yesterday we caught walleyes as deep as 44' and as shallow as 10'! Location and time of day is the key! We caught walleyes deep using short snell Lindy rigs,( 2 ft.), with minnows, The shallow walleyes hit best on the same rigs using 1/2 crawler. Sand and rock mix or transitions are the key areas right now. Necked down areas that have deep water and adjacent sand flats are almost always good now. Cliff

      If  my memory serves me correctly , yes you can . I believe that we were able to safely walk a 16ft boat through the short stretch of current . When we did this it was warm part of summer and we were in shorts and just had a pair of tennis shoes on when we walked the boat up stream which was about a 30 yard or so pull .Now if you would attempt this during colder weather like now , I’m sure a pair of knee length rubber boots would be sufficient . Very beautiful clear water with awesome scenery . Walleye , Smallmouth , and Lakers .

      Has anyone fished North Lake before? Lakefinder says there’s a navigable waterway there via Gunflint Lake. However, the map shows rapids in between Little Gunflint and Little North, with a short portage. Just wondering if I could get a boat in there.

      Have got out 3 evenings so far.  Seeing deer only one of those evenings.  4 deer Monday evening with a fawn buck and a small 1 and half old buck coming within range.   Woods and fields are changing fast.

      Good opener on the water in the Mankato area. 3 wood ducks and 2 geese. Little guy’s first opener, we left at 10:00 and he wanted to stay longer than I did!

      As many of the other dog owners told me the third hunting season is when it comes together for lots of dogs. Finn did much better today and he got to watch a veteran dog again. I am excited to keep getting finn out hunting

      We got two ducks. We should had more but it was fun shooting. I need to keep my face on my stock. I had pass on many birds as another group moved in on top of us. I had 5 woodies locked up and I drew a bead and I saw the other guys faces. No shot as i would killed them or wounded them. They knew we there but did not seem to care.
