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

Brian

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.

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
