"Glojigs"

14 posts in this topic

Has anyone had any luck with these battery powered jigs? I am making a trip to Upper Red and Lake of the Woods this weekend and hope to give them a try.
I noticed the threads were kind of screwed up, the cap didn't want to screw on straight. The light still worked though.
Just looking for positive/negative feelings on this new product.

Thanks,

I used it once and the battery was dead in about 20 minutes. I wasn't impressed. I'll be interested to hear how it works out for you.

In my opinion your money is better spent on new super glow luminescent jigs than battery powered gadgets. If you want to put batteries in something put them in a good camera flash and than use rechargeable batteries for that.

Northland and Costume Jig's and Spin's have new super glow finishes that last up to 45 minutes compared to the old 15 to 20 minute a shot glow jigs. Better use of a dollar and less junk in the tackle box that never get used in my opinion.

I use a Vivitar 2000 flash avalable at Wall Mart for $18 and powered it with Rayovac rechargeable alkaline batteries. I hate buying $200 worth of throw away's every year, don't do it any more. My second year on the same batteries and they hold a charge very well and recharge fast too. Environmentally friendly too.

Well worth the investment in the charger. I use the rechargeable in all my outdoor stuff, GPS, flashlights, cameras, flash's, radios, and lighted market buoys.

We have used the "Glojigs".
Mille Lacs = one (1) Burbot.
Lake of the woods = one (1) Burbot.
Red Lake = one (1) perch & one (1) Burbot.
We gave them a fair shake - jig...

Hey Eddy!
I've been using this little light called a pocket beam. It has a super intense blue beam that really does a number on the new glow in the dark stuff! It also fits on a keychain, or your jacket zipper. Cost is alot less than 18 dollars and the battery is supposed to last up to ten years. Mine is still like the day I took it out of the package. I got one sitting right in front of me with your name on it! Paul

Hey Paul,
Where can I get one of those? I met with Jeff Beckwith the other day and he showed me his. Wow! that thing is bright! I made the mistake of looking at the light when I lit it up (I'll be more carefull next time).

Would the small laser with the red beam work the same?, or is it something about the blue beam?.

For those of you who can not find the Vector lights drop me an email. I just got 2 cases of them in.

    • Its a great house. Yep its heavy, yep the cover is bulky compared to a single layer, yep I'd buy it again. You can always pull down a zipper or 2 (front and back doors) if you get hot. For what its worth I switched from a Clam Yukon TC (normal sides with a insulated top) both are a similar size. On below zero days in the clam I would have to use a big buddy. In the otter I use a buddy and rarely turn it on high.
    • Ya, right. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA   From a car audio site....MOTORHEADS talkin'...   FlyinMiata9,
      A shorter antenna mast captures a smaller portion of a radio broadcast station's travelling radio wave. That results in reduced radio reception capability. The reduced radio reception capability may never be noticed if only listening to nearby radio broadcast stations in the city. 

      There's no overall magic of one short antenna over another. There are some that include a signal amplifier. They can at times enhance more distant radio receptions, but usually degrade other radio reception situations, often those where there are multiple strong radio signals in the reception area.

      The overall disadvantages of antenna amplifiers for car antennas tend to be far more predominant than advantages. There are some radio signal amplifiers for car antennas that automatically switch "off" when operated in a strong signal area. That can assist clearly listening to the nearby strong radio stations, but reduce the prospect of listening to any some distance away.

      There's always a prospect of the antenna you installed being defective, or not installed properly well mounted to the car's fender for a good electrical radio reception ground plane. Check to make sure the in-line Motorola connector set is fully pushed-in inserted together. 

      A simple way to test the antenna line and system is to tune in a weak AM radio station in the daytime and then grab hold of the antenna mast to detect stronger and louder reception of that weak AM radio station. Your conductive body mass adds some to the short antenna's reception capability. There may also be an initial "thump" sound as the car's radio makes an automatic adjustment of its radio reception sensitivity. If there's no dramatic change in weak AM radio reception, look for an open or shorted electrical problem. Best bet is a full length proper antenna.
    • The replacements most likely have tuning components built in.  And it isn't too big a deal anyway if you have decent signal strength.
    •     What are ya, a parrot? Someone needs to tune you...with 220 volts of inductance. *ZZZZZT*  
    • Well you guys could have given me this info before.
    • Not in disagreement....most Ice gear is though.   Just trying to find some feed back on if it works well and lights up like it should.
