Glow devils / Angel eyes

5 posts in this topic

I have never used either of these items, but everyone seems to brag them up, what is the big deal. Are they really that much better than northland ice fishing jigs and other similar products?

I wouldn't say that any lure is better than any other,all the time.
I have had days where buck shots or forage minnows worked the best.I have also had days where the fish would not take any thing but a Glow Devil.I keep a good stock of lures of all kinds in my box.
Angel Eyes have their place to.The jrs kick crappie but.Of course not always.But lots! smile.gifThey have a unique action that no other jigging spoon has,and the crappies and walleyes love it.

i gave all my northland baits away. no sense in keeping them when i dont use them anymore. i caught fish on them once in awhile but the glow devils and angel eyes are great. i seem to catch fish more consistant with these spoons.

I can say this. I haven't used a Northland spoon since I started using glow devils almost 4 years ago. I still have a few Forage Minnows in my box but I have not used them. That used to be my "go to" spoon.

All you guys who dont use your Northland tackle can send it to me! grin.gif Seriously though its what gives you the most confidence. I have tons of lures that catch fish but I get into ruts where Ill only use a dozen or so when I know others will work as well. I guess its fun and challenging to try stuff for the 1st time. Thats why my Croxston Pond Bag weighs 30#. grin.gif

    • It is summer bacon season, plus they have gotten trendy on their own.  
    • Fletcher must really like these guys that are small and quick.  I don't understand why they are trying so hard to keep the team intact.  They haven't made it past the 2nd round for the 5-6 years.  We've had this discussion before, but at what point do you say this just isn't working as is?   They have to move good players to get good players.  
    • I look at it like cast iron....numerous cookings give 'em a perfect seasoning. Gotta leave some residue on IMO.
    • No butcher buddy? They can order one for ya....be advised they have taken a huge leap in prices. Ask a butcher about that. Mine (who's also a good friend) said it's the highest he's ever seen 'em at right now.
    • jhust find a locker plant that smokes their own bellies and buy one from them.
    • I have seen it in Costco quite often.  Didn't look last time.    Or call around, often the meat markets will special order if desired.   Seems it was in the 3 buck a pound area if I remember right.     I don't know how far from a Costco you are, but they are a good place to buy meat.   Sams Club might work also. 
    • Pretty hard to tell. Is this on a TWSP, County or State road? You will need to get a permit from them and build it to their standards if approved. Will you need a culvert? Probably will unless you locate it at a highpoint. Will you have to remove any trees? How much fill is needed? is the ditch deep or shallow? How long do you want it? Hopefully you are not impacting any wetlands... It use to be simple, but now it is much more complicated. Could get spendy...
    • Since my smoker is new for now I throw them in the big wash sinks in the basement with some Dawn and hot water to soak. Then rinse them with more hot water. I'm sure in time once they get more "purplefloyd seasoned". I'll rub them a bit with a grill brush and hit them with a garden hose! 
    • Hello from the NW Angle of Lake of the Woods!

      Here in Minnesota, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s and the Walleyes keep rollin’ in! Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches and crank-baits right along the weed line. Crawlers on a gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 and 26 feet. Jigging has been tough this week with the strong winds, but the Mayflies have finally tapered off!!
       
      Up on the Canadian side, bottom bouncing has been filling the live wells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have seen nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action can currently be had in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing is still sporadic with high 40” class fish being caught from shallow bottom bays or just outside of them. 

      Fish of the Week:
      49" and 46" Muskie
      40" Pike
      At least 10 Walleye over 25" 

      We hope to see you soon! Sunset Lodge
    • Anyone know where I can find it?  Checked a couple grocery stores and even a butcher and nobody has it?  Also what's a decent price if I do find any?
