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

    • Sorry. I see this concept is completely over everyone's head here.    
    •   Just outlaw anything that might hurt someone.    If it saves just one life..... Do it for the children....   And they want us to believe these 2 political parties are different. 
    • Luckily for me my neighbor across the road bought a hive with 2500 or 25,000 bees, I forget, last summer. Have bees everywhere here in the summer and we plant a lot of flowers and will be increasing that this summer to help the little dudes. Even got a jar of honey from him last year!
    • I think just about anything can be smoked. would be easy to get the crappies over dry. they turned out great using the technique above. dang near as good as smoked eggs!  
    • Raised beds, you hear people talk about them but what are they? Depending on how much money you want to spend on material and dirt a raised bed can be just a couple 2x8’s nailed together to waist high beds that you don’t need to bend over to work. Now that waist high one will with dirt is going to cost you some compared to the shallow 2x8 bed. Either way a raised bed does some or all of the following things. It eliminates the need for tilling, as you never step into the bed thus compacting it. When you fill the bed it allows you too put clean dirt exactly where you want it, not on the paths between beds where you walk and never plant. Weed control is much easier. Containing the crop you are growing is much easier. Harvesting is much easier. You can add fertilizer taylor made for the crop you are growing not fertilizing the entire garden that maybe 30% of that you walk on and don’t grow in.   The last few years I have been switching to low raised beds and container growing. A typical 4x8 bed takes twenty bags of dirt to fill or about 500#’s the beds are so fluffy that I can turn them over with my hand or just a little rake. This season I am going to add three more beds which will give me total of 11 and over 50 five gallon containers. Of course if room is not a problem then traditional planting stills works just fine especially for spuds and melons and squash. Just offering other ideas.
    •   But yet Christians claim they do.....  
    •   The one I made called for cumin. I think next time I might do something in between my recipe and this one.
    • I always thought smoking was for more fattier fish such as lake trout, salmon, suckers, whitefish and the like?
    •     This sounds good. Gonna have to try it   Plus the emphasis on vegetables in most Chilis
