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.

    • Whats everyone's thoughts on this new feature? https://www.navionics.com/usa/blog/post/ais-in-the-boating-app/  
    • What you are doing is even better than what they hope to achieve with the law. I do the same thing. My minnows never see lake water while in my possession except while riding on a hook. It is not possible to transfer invasives via my minnows or minnow container unless they came from the bait shop and the result would be same either way.   This brings up a good question. Aren't minnows trapped in lakes and streams? They could contain microscopic versions of invasive species and therefore be responsible for transporting them to every lake where the minnows are used. Even those raised in rearing ponds are potential threats if the rearing ponds become infected.   Unfortunately, it is impractical (not impossible) for a CO to know that my minnows have not been in the lake. He would have to take my word for it. As a result, unless they catch me taking my aerated minnow cooler from my boat to my truck, ....  
    • I see they got Eddie & Cron back last night but now Buxton's out again. It didn't help though as they played a sloppy game & beat themselves.
    • Work related travel.  Never been to the northeast before and wanted to experience it as much as possible so I drove and took a couple extra days.   Original plans had me touring some stuff in the DC area but its been a little more difficult and expensive to wander about than I’d hoped.   Get me to some water!!!
    • Most of the fish I've caught out of the abyss were caught just above the thermocline or high in the water column (1'-15' down). A friend of mine once caught a 31" hog walleye on a top raider over 100'+ of water. That's just one of the many hogs to come into my boat that were 0'-5' under the surface in mega deep water. So, keep your lures above the kill zone on slot lakes and you'll still get bit.
    • To young to be retired whats up with all this Wandering?  Didn't you just come back from Musky fishering? 🤔
    • Walked the Inner Harbor a bit, ate soft shell crab and took in an Oriole’s game at Camden Yards today.  Oh, and finally booked a SHORT trip on Erie to catch on the ride home.  Better than nothing.   White water rafting tomorrow will have to do for my most significant Maryland experience.  This put a little chill on me when I noticed what it was.     It’s a nice place to visit, but... you know the  rest.
    • Tried my hand at making Nashville hot chicken last night. It didn't turn out exactly like I expected but it was still good.  
    • Great fish @Lals!   You sound like we did on the way home from our trip - analyzing every fish we didn’t hook up or keep hooked after they bit.  I didn’t get any joy from a Top Raider either but live chucking them.   Thanks for the report!
    • Just came back from LOTW.  Numbers were down but not bites.  I was a miserable 6 for 15 fish on. 75% of the bites came on the figure 8, I mostly tried to set back into them and they would come "unbuttoned " pretty quickly.  Next year, I will  try pulling them around or if they bite up in the corner of my figure 8, I would then pull the rod straight back trying to set it in the corner of their mouth.   Smaller bucktails got the most bites.  Cranks did pretty well too -- 7" Slammers and Crane Bait.  One friend got a 48 on a Top Raider. I had a 4 -5 large fish follow a top raider or a jackpot but none bit.  My brother got a 50" on a Mepps Musky Marabou.
