Lindy Tasers for glow in the dark lures???

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,
I've noticed the Lindy Tasers come in 2 colors, blue and white. Aside from the different colored light what's the difference? Does one color work better for certain color lures as far as recharging the glow goes? Those suckers are expensive at about $12 a pop in walmart. Are there cheaper alternatives that work just as well? Anyone use anything else to charge their glow in the dark lures? Inquiring minds want to know.

Actually, the sunlight off the snow and ice works the best of any of the tazers. Although, if it is dark and you can't use option 1, the best thing I have found is a small green light made by energizer. It cost me 2.99 and has a watch battery that last me all of last winter. I bought mine at Kmart.

I bought a High Tech light. It's blue. It cost me $5 at L an M Fleet in Bemidji. Looked at Gander Mtn, and found nothing even close to that price.

I also use an old camera flash. Works great and cheap if you have one laying around.

Go with custom jigs and spins nuclear flasher in the blue color. The blue one has UV light in it. The UV light really charges up the glow paint.

We just got about a hundred little generic lure lights. They seem to work just as good as my more expensive Lindy and Northland tazers. They run about $4 as compared to $12. I have a feeling it'll be tough to sell the more expensive ones now. I'd buy the cheaper lure lights if you can get them.

I found one at Gander Mountain that cost me $7.99 in the ice-fishing area. Tested it in my bathroom and it's okay. From everybody I've talked to though, the camera flash seems to be the best.

    • Mmm mm Thanks!!!!!!!!
    • your package went in the mail today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • Figured I'd loop back on this with an update.  I ended up getting the Weber Spirit 3 burner.  Picked it up at Ace Hardware.  Its the same price everywhere ($449) but Ace will assemble it, deliver it, and haul away the old one for no charge.  Bought it Saturday morning had it sitting on the back patio by 3pm that same afternoon.   I ended up looking at a lot of grills including many brands of gas grills, pellet grills, and some charcoal grills.  There were some other gas grills that I liked, they looked to be made solidly from good materials and they came at a decent price.  However, they all lacked a decent warranty.  The webers use less stainless steel than some of the others and I'm not 100% sure what the china production will do to the quality and longevity of a Weber but they do come with the best warranty that I saw.  I believe grates and flavorizer bars have a 5 year warranty and everything else has a 10 year warranty.  Customer service and part availability was also a big selling point.  Weber parts look to be easily available and if you do end up having to replace the grate, flavorizer bars, and burners it will only set you back $150 which should get you many more years out of the grill.    I let my almost 3 year old son pick the color since he came with to help pick it out.  I couldn't argue with his choice of red.  It is clearly the fastest looking grill, now I just need to add a racing stripe. 
    • Saturday morning I was able to put my tag on a nice bird. If I did no get to put some scouting time in I would of moved too fast. I knew these bird was going to show up but he never made a peep on roost or the ground. I was able to call in the hens with him following. The hens yelped twice on the ground and that was it. Had other birds gobbling but I knew this guy was around. It was him with 3 Jakes and 3 hens that pretty much stayed by themselves and nothing to do with the larger group of birds. I was able to see him the Saturday before opener and trail cameras showing he was coming through around 720 each morning. I shot him at 7:15 plan worked out great. 20 Gauge is becoming my favorite gun for turkeys. He was just a couple oz’s shy of 24lbs. double beard 11inch, spurs 1inch. Some big birds dropping. My dads was 25lbs and Protourbait above 24. Might head back to NE this weekend see how the week goes. I have WI left for a couple tags.
    • I personally don't use hens often.  When I do she's in a breeding position near a strutting tom.  I usually go jakes of various postures or no decoys.  I like to keep them guessing where that hen is at.  I've had too many mature Tom's hang up, strut and gobble until the real hens show up to escort him away when using just hens.
    • What would be the reasoning behind just using hen\ hens decoys? To put the toms at ease? I usually use the standard hen / jake combo.
    • Nice!   Yep, that looks just the way I hope to find em!  Nada for me but maybe if I get some time in the turkey woods I’ll have some better luck.
    • That's one cut I need to do on the pellet smoker. Everything so far has turned out real moist and tender,  I'm guessing since the door seals up so tight. I prefer as well to slice that day, the leftovers can go in the crockpot for shredding.. I better go get one.
    • Num that looks awesome. Bet the carcass would boil up to make a mighty fine tasty soup too!
