Confused about Angle-eye

Recommended Posts

Guest

Is the angle-eye lure distributed by other manufactures, and if so is there any difference. I have an angle-eye by jb lures out of Winthrop, Mn. Can you order them just by color?

The angel eye spoons from jb are the same spoon that you will find here and elsewhere as the angel eye junior from scenic tackle.
The original angel eye spoon is called just that, the angel eye. It is quite a bit bigger than the AE junior but just as effective, Ive taken quite a few nice fish off the original angel eye spoons...Have a great ice season!! Paul

I am assuming JB also packages the glow devil as well but calls them "varmits"???????? They look awfully similar, but haven't seen a scenic glow-devil up close yet, so I could be wrong on this.

Just for your info the Varmite and Glow devil are very similar but they are a little different. The Varmite is shaped slightly different but I am sure they will work in a similar manner.

In my opinion, the Varmit in not even close to the Glow Devil. Similar in apprearance yes, but there are some MAJOR advantages to the Glow Devil if you look closely. This is my 4th year now using Glow Devils and they outfish Varmits big time.

I really like JB lures, they have great paint on them. I just don't think the Varmit is a good comparison to the Glow Devil.

Yes, it is my understanding that JB's Angel Eye and Scenic Tackle Angel Eye Jr's are the same thing. The advantage in getting Scenic Tackle Angel Eyes is the fact that you can get a card of them at a reduced price.

Maybe Jeff will jump in on this one.

I didn't see the glow devil in Gander Mt in Minnetonka. I saw the varmit though, but didn't get it.

Ebass - that is where I was at as well and didn't see them. But seen the varmits and angel eyes from JB and had to say to myself, apples to apples, apples to oranges???

The varmits didn't come in 1/16th oz. so it led me to beleive that they were different, and also the fact that the varmits came in "regular" and "rattle". I picked up a couple of the "rattling" ones. And One of each of the 1/8th blue, red and perch. Now I will be buying a card of the 1/8th glow devils so I can compare. And then get the 1/16th just because smile.gif

Korn_fish, that is the best way. Pick some up and check out the difference. I won't post the differences but the first time you use one will will understand what I am talking about. There are signicant differences between the Varmit and the Glow Devil. Let me know how it goes.

  • Your Responses - Share & Have Fun :)

    • The one thing I can think of that your son could have done differently is that maybe he should have got a name from the land owner and sought out the other hunter for a discussion before hand. The hunting woods are a much safer place when everyone hunting the area knows the whereabouts and plans of each other hunter in the woods.   That's not to say that the other 50 year old guy isn't being an unreasonable, entitled, first class a hole but part of this may be due to a misunderstanding if there was not a discussion prior to hunting season. 
    • I agree with you 100%. If it were me who had the permission to hunt I would approach things differently but when my son is involved I would back down and use it as a learning lesson. I would however tell the lady that your son is not going to be hunting her land and the exact reason why. If it were my land, I would want to know.
    • Horns make some otherwise normal people crazy. I'm not a horn hunter myself and that is one reason why.  
    • Dang what a shame not cool at all. I agree with leech. That’s more than enough acreage for more than one hunter to hunt. If he had the guts to go talk to the neighbor lady and she was fine with it then all is good. If this “kid” ( old guy) has an issue with it then he needs to grow up It’s not his land. Not many kids even hunt anymore so the fact that he wants to is great. Let him hunt some and if it continues to be an issue then maybe just tell him to pull the plug? I’m also dealing with some crazy neighbors right now that continue to feed. The CO has been out many times and they still do the same thing tickets have been given and there’s been some talking. I hate to “ tadle” on others but when people think they have rights that others shouldn’t have then that’s where a CO may come into play. Not saying you need to do this but if he comes barging to the door and demanding your son leave then maybe something needs to change and maybe he shouldn’t be allowed there. 
    • Leech- I thought about that same thing.  I do not know the guy or the family, so unsure of what the dynamic is there.    Thanks for the responses.  We are going to head over there this evening and talk with the lady. My plan is take it down either way.  If she says he can still hunt, and boot the other guy, or even let them both hunt i dont think if the experience is going to be anything we are looking forward to dealing with.  We have 10 acres at our house he's hunting too, and going to do some more knocking on doors.  I get being protective over his "spot". It just bothers me that he would be so unwilling to allow a 15 yr old to experience what he clearly loves to do.  Life will go on.  We will be in Montana in Oct, chasing elk and mule deer. He wont be missing out!  Those bucks are roaming the river bottom we live on, maybe the ultimate revenge will be having a chance to shoot one of them on our own land we are grooming for wildlife together.
    • Dang, I just moved Duff higher on the LIKE count!  😕
    • Beisswengers Hardware in New Brighton.  Top sales of Honda Gens and excellent service. Beisswengers
    • I would get a dlb ladder stand and sit with my kid as much as I could.  Don't let the dude bully you if you have the right to be there as well.  She may not know the age of this person if he had his kid go down there and get permission and he is really doing the hunting?  
    • He has permission from the landowner, let him hunt. If the 50 year old does anything to affect his hunt that is "hunter harassment" and he should be charged. 
    • Obviously the guy has "passion" for "his" hunting spot.  I would try to meet him face to face with your son and see if you couldn't reasonably discuss it and come to an agreement.  Possibly do it at the landowners home if you want to put him in his place.  This of course first goes with how you feel this gentleman would be towards a talk.  After all it is not his land and he can't just bully his way around.  Now if you feel he is psychotic then don't bother.  I have a chunk of land that I can't hunt (even though I have permission and all the rights to hunt it) because the neighbor is crazy enough that he will possibly hunt me and I don't need that feeling of being hunted.  Hope you can work things out!  People get funny when it comes to hunting land especially when they know there is a bigger deer in the area.
