you mean the Lindy Techni-glow series of jigs? you should be able to find them at any bait and tackle store.

I bought a couple different Genz jigs and the Genz worms I think they are glowed well, but the fat boys didn't glow at all or very, very little. They said GLOW on the package... I think there must have been a mistake on those, they didn't glow at all it seemed.

I too agree on the glow paint on the Genz fatboys and Genz worms. Mine seemed to glow the first few times I used them, but now don't seem to glow at all.

Good Luck and Tight Lines!

You don't want to store you genz worms near any of the new "plastics". It must be the oil in the plastics, but something weekens the paint on the Genz Jigs. I now keep my Genz worms in the original box until I use them. That seems to be the best way to get life out of them.

Maybe I can get Jeff Beckwith from Scenic Tackle to repaint the jigs. His paint won't come off with a hammer grin.gif

I have to agree about the Genz Jigs glow paint. I have repainted most of my old jigs. They glow right out of the box but it doesn't last long. I have had to recover most of my old genz worms with a thicker glow paint.

I read years ago that glow paint left out in the light too much will lose its glow ability. I compared a jig left on a rod to one that was stored in the box and it seems to hold true. When not being used, I store my glow lures in a dark tackle box. Also, when buying new ones off the rack, I don't take the pack hanging in front. I go back a couple of packs to some that have been shaded from the store's lights.

I have Phelps Tick Jigs in the same box as my Genz Worms and they don't lose their glow at all.

I have a walleye box full of Glow Devils and not one of them as lost its glow. Some are going on 3 years old.

I have never been happy with the paint on the Genz Worms. I really like the body design but the paint is bad and the hook shanks are to thin. I am sure the diehard panfish guys can relate to that one.

scott, where could i find some glow paint to paint some of my jigs? I have always made my own crappie jigs and painted them with fingernail polish. Anyone want something to do on those long nights that you cant get out to the lake? get a fly-tying kit and stat making your own flies and crappie/sunfish jigs.

I repair mine with the stuff you can buy at Mills or Gander. You heat the jig and dip it in the paint, then bake it a little. I can't remember the name of the paint but I am sure someone will know what it is called. It is not near as good as the paint the good tackle companies use but it is a quick fix.

I would be nice if it was done right from the start. You sure pay enough for the panfish jigs.

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
