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.

    • They can sure humble a person. 
    • Well I tagged out this morning.   I got out later as my daughter and her family were over so I headed out after breakfast.  I drove by the field to see if there were any there so I could plan a route to the blind.   There was a fl8cknof Jake's and a flock of longbeards.  I quickly snuck into my blind and stuck a funky chicken decoy out.  As I was stepping into the blind the Jake's start clearing the trees between the blind and them.  They worked around out front a ways.  Suddenly I see 2 toms fly into the field.  The jakes immediately charged the toms driving them out of the field.  After that the jakes saw the funky chicked and headed over to check it out.  With the toms gone and time dlipoung away I picked one out and shot him at 30 yards.  He'll taste good on rhe grill this summer.   Got in the blind at 10 am and was done by 10:15 am.  It's been a long season. 
    • Fun in the yak today in SE SD caught and released a bunch of these today:
    • How can a bird with brain the size of a pea out smart us!
    • The 2 lakes i bass fish have slowed way down the last week.   A swim-bait ripple shad was hot ticket for a while but that is just a pike attraction right now.  Been switching to a Senko and helped a little.   Pads are coming up fast now and we should see a spike up in activity soon.  Cannot wait to throw the frogs soon as that is the biggest rush watching those eruptions in the water!!   Thanks for posting as i found it to be quite slower than usual also.   Which means i need to find better ammo during those times.  
    • Tomorrow we will be back at it
    • I am giving it a last hurrah tomorrow. Sorry I haven't been able to check in here much. I have hardly been able to get out this year between work, a baby at home, and a recent trip out of the country for a relative's wedding.    Last time I was out I had a real nice Tom within 20 yards after a very long standoff. I think I screwed it up by rushing myself a bit. He stood around 50 yards out literally strutting back and forth like someone had drawn a line in the mud that he wouldnt cross. He must not have wanted to fight with the strutter decoy we had out. He did that for 45 minutes to an hour and finally came our way after a hen led him towards us.    They came past us but were outside the decoys and angling slightly away from us. Then the tom turned and started angling straight at the strutter decoy. That meant he was basically quartering to me and when he was 15-17 yards or so out I drew because in the back of my mind i was thinking if he kept moving that way and past the decoy he would quickly be in a spot I would have had no shot.   In hindsight I think he had realized (once he got close enough) that he would have been able to whoop up on the decoy and he was coming in to do just that. I probably should have waited to see, but I didn't and right as I hit the backwall of my draw his head popped up on alert and he turned around and walked straight away knowing something wasn't quite right. I could have easily shot at him at 20 yards but he was facing away and I just didn't feel comfortable. I am confident I would have hit my mark but I didn't like shooting at something walking straight away when I am not experienced with bow hunting turkeys.   I know some people will say that I should have shot, but I have been bow hunting for awhile and never wounded anything because of a poor shot or poor shot selection, so I didn't want that to be a first. Hopefully I get a shot at redemption tomorrow!
    • Way to go team!! I sure took the avg score down with my jake
    • nice story, fishing has a way of easing the pains we have. even when we hurt like crazy when done for the day we are looking forward to the next outing.
    • way to go, guys yep, the toms not about to give up even though its close to closing time have seen several strutters the past couple weeks and heard gobbles yesterday while fishing
