Angel Eyes vs. Glow Devils

12 posts in this topic

Hey guys,

I'm getting some new tackle for the season and plan to try the much discussed AE or Glow Devils. Can these be purchased individually anywhere? If not I will probably order one or the other as tackle is expensive. If I opt for the AE Jr, can I target more species(crappie/pannies)? I know I should probably purchase both for the right conditions, I'm just curious what you guys feel is the better of the two.

Tight lines

I use both lures. Both the GoDevils and AE jr will catch numerous different specie.

Check out this link where one can purchase assorted cards of numerous different colors.

The AE is probably the most popular.

That's a great bait for perch and walleyes on Winnie too .... and don't go to LOTW without one either.

I use Angel Eyes more than Jrs and Glow Devils.

Angel Eye Jrs tipped with a minnow head or loaded up with waxies is tough to beat.

Last year, Fleet Farm was selling them individually.

Thanks guys.

It sounds like everyone has their own opinion, but the consensus is that these lures work. I seldom fish the states largest lakes in the winter so the AE Jr. will probably be my best bet. Am I better off purchasing a pack of 12 or do you guys tend to stick with a specific color? I don’t want to purchase a pack of 12 just to primarily use 1 or 2 of the colors.

Angel Eye Jr is a good lure when the fish are a bit finicky where the Go Devils doesnt have as much action so you have to put the action into it yourself. Both will catch you fish but if I had little money to spend on them I would go Angel Eye Jr 1st. Hammered Gold/red, Glow Red, Pink/glow, green/glow and orange/chart would be the 1st I got. Always by 2 of each color when you can. It sucks losing your hot bait to a pike and not having another with you.

Exactly Northlander. Thats why I suggested the card of 12 with 6 different colors with 2 of each.

There are times when one color is hot and you need to share with a friend or the wife. Can't have too many when the fish are biting cause all it takes is a bite off from a Northern or 2 and you will have none. I have all the colors that Northlander mention and they have worked on every lake that I have tried them in.The AE have become one of my goto lures. The gold and reds/pink on LOTW and the greens and orange/perch on winni.

Agreed Northlander! Nothing worse than loosing the hot lure. For me I usually have one rod rigged with an angel eye, one with a buckshot, one with a forage minnow, and last one rigged up with a sweedish pimple. I find that the angel eye's are much lighter, than any of the other 3 I just listed, so keep in mind with that if your fishing over 20 feet, but they are my go to lure early ice for walleyes. Plus Angel eye's are produced for a much lower cost from JB Lures than a buck shot or forage minnow from Northland. Never used the Go Devils to much, mainly for perch but they do work for walleye but I am more confident with the angel eyes, pimples, buckshots, forage minnows, just a personal preference I guess. Buy both and test them out thats my advice.

    • And we know you like it raw.  No vaseline.   Pink steak, sure.  But raw burger just isn't my jam.   
    • AHH..... Memories.... I would have loved to have a odometer on our  Tri-Moto 125, had to have put thousands of miles on that 3 wheeler, burnt it down a few times when we were kids but Dad said you'll have to learn to fix it yourself! I'm not bringing it back to the dealer every time there's something wrong! We got good at new pistons and rings and gasket sets..... eventually we brought it to the dealer in pieces after we couldn't fix it anymore, think it was a rod bearing that eventually was it's demise, ended up getting a rippin' Tri-Moto 175 after that, those wheelers were our main transportation since we didn't have drivers licenses yet....... good times for sure.   You're carb is having issues, I would go there first, somethings not stopping the fuel from getting into your carb, either the float has a hole in it and isn't floating, or it could be sticking somewhere or your needle and seat are shot.   Give the carb a good once over and you should have your problem fixed.   Those were pretty basic 2 cycle engines, I don't think they even had reed valves.   Mike    
    • I planned on getting seeds and starting them at home, I won't be up there until late April. I have planted squash up there and they did not grow, I will look at blue hubbard, I have not had/grown them before, they sound interesting.
    • Tomatoes, peppers and most other veggies can be easily grown in containers. This allows you to get your plants from the greenhouse and pot them up a week or two earlier if you have a sheltered spot for them.   Veggies can be mixed with ornamental plants in your containers and you can create some really cool landscaping. I have a ton of antique containers that I've integrated into my landscaping and they usually turn out great.
    • Probably.    What are you out if they don't grow?   Just use seeds.   No need to buy plants.   A couple bucks will get enough seeds to plant quite a few hills (plant several seeds in a group).   Or plant butternut squash and you get to eat some too.    Or Blue Hubbard...  
    •   Yes, definitely fence it if you are able. We have a large garden that we don't fence do to the size. Each year the deer do some damage but the worst is raccoons. We don't have many of them but they came through 2 years ago and destroyed our sweet corn crop. We had 4 rows, each over 50' long all gone in one night. It looked like they had a party with corn husks laying in piles all over the yard and corn cobs stripped clean everywhere. It was actually kind of comical to me but my wife was not pleased. 
    • Second the swim jig, comes through any cover nice, and if they aren't hitting the frog they will the swim jig
    • I would like to grow some pumpkins this year in the field on my hunting land in Wadena county. The ground is mostly sand. Can I dig a few holes, fill them with black dirt/compost and plant the plants in these, will they grow ok? Any advice will be appreciated.
    •   Yeah, yeah we know your the real Meat expert!  Vaseline.  
    • Never had dog.   Raw beef is tasty.  Rare steak,  carpaccio, steak tartare, Wisconsin cannibal sandwiches.     http://articles.latimes.com/2013/dec/06/news/la-ol-cannibal-sandwich-wisconsin-illness-20131206   'War on Christmas' expands to 'war on cannibal sandwich' in Wisconsin December 06, 2013|By Paul Whitefield   Forget the war on Christmas; now the nanny statists have taken aim at another storied holiday tradition (at least if you live in Wisconsin): cannibalism. OK, wait, that’s not quite accurate (though it is a heck of lede). It’s actually the “cannibal sandwich” that has caught the all-seeing eye of Big Government — and it doesn’t like what it’s seeing. First, some background, for those folks who live in normal places and eat normal food — or those who are having visions of the wood-chipper scene in “Fargo” (which wasn’t even set in Wisconsin, by the way, for you geographically challenged Californians).   It seems that the “cannibal sandwich” is a popular item in areas of the upper Midwest, and especially in Wisconsin. According to the Associated Press: “The appetizer, also called ‘tiger meat,’ ‘steak tartare’ or simply ‘ground beef,’ is usually a simple dish of lean ground meat seasoned with salt and pepper on rye cocktail bread with sliced raw onion.” The AP gleaned this tidbit from one John Gurda, a “Milwaukee historian … who served it at his 1977 wedding reception” (which must’ve been one of the highlights of the season that year in Milwaukee). Oh, yes, and in case you were planning on making this at home: “Occasionally, a raw egg will be mixed with the meat.” Or, I suppose, you could throw caution completely to the winds and slap on a raw oyster or two. But it’s yummy, at least to Wisconsinites. As Keith Meyer, who runs a butcher shop in Kenosha, explained to the AP: “It’s like eating a cold hamburger that’s a little on the raw side.” Or, I’d say, it’s exactly like eating a cold hamburger that is in fact raw — then again, I’ve never had one, so what would I know? Anyway, as I started to say when I began this rant, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (a.k.a. one of the nanny staters) doesn’t have the same, ahem, respect for tradition as the common cheeseheads, and it issued a warning this week about the Wisconsin fare. Seems it had found 50 cases of food-borne illness in 1972, 1978 and 1994 in the state, and in the 2012 holiday season, it linked at least four and possibly more than a dozen cases of E. Coli to the consumption of “cannibal sandwiches” in central Wisconsin. To which I say: Only 50? Only four? Heck, more people get sick eating bad cantaloupes and spinach. You’re going to deprive the good people of the upper Midwest a cherished holiday party platter because a few folks got really sick? No, I say! Rather, “Don’t tread on my bread!” Or, “You can have my cold raw hamburger sandwich when you pry it from my cold dead fingers.” I say, “If it was good enough for Grandpa Ollie, it’s good enough for (anyone silly enough to eat it)!” Or, at the very least, just give it a better name. After all, in California, we pay big bucks to eat sushi — raw fish. So maybe the Wisconsin folks should call their concoction a “sashi sandwich.” Who knows, it might be the next big thing on the Left Coast.
