So even though you can’t see the bait glow in the boat because of the bright sunlight, at 8 feet in the water, the UV rays will be causing your lure to instantly glow and add flash and contrast to your lure to help it standout and attract predators.
Walleye fishermen have known for several years about the power of glowing lures. The secrets out and bass fisherman are beginning to learn of the benefits of adding glow effects to lures. Even crystal clear water can get pretty dark pretty quick. When you are fishing in the 6-15 foot range, the water has already turned shadowy. High-quality glowing lures only need a slight shadow, not total darkness, to make their glow patterns visible to the light seeking eyes of that big predator hiding near cover. Bass, walleye, pike, salmon, trout, steelhead, and many other species of fish have vision optimized for color selection. Color does make a difference. The problem is most lures, without glow, look the same color – grey – when you get down several feed in the water. Today’s glowing lures bring a variety of colors down to the depths where the fish are actively feeding. These colors include an ever-increasing palette of violets, blues, greens, yellows, and oranges. Today’s glow lures allow you to add flash, contrast, and increased color to 8-25 feet, and deeper, fishing. These glow colors greatly increase the contrast between the lure and its surroundings and allows for easy locating, tracking, and attacking by predator fish always looking for that bait fish that stands out from the crowd and looks like easy pickings.
Charge the baits with sun light, led light or a uv light. You can see that some look to be brighter, these were charged with a portable spot light. These baits will hold a charge and glow for hours.
