Glo Paint

Recommended Posts

I have never used the glo paint. ButI do use a colored minnow powder which seems to increase the number of strikes on my tip up minnows.

The stuff I have works wonders on Tonka

i got a couple jars of glow paint from gander a couple weeks ago. It is the powder that you heat the jigs wih a lighter and then when you dip them in the powder it forms a really smooth finish on the jig. The chartreuse has an amazin long-lasting glow but i am no so impressed with the orange, it lasts a long time but is not so bright.

Here's a little hint that you may find helpful when looking for a "glow" paint for jigs. First apply a white under coat, then the glow. For color, use a transparent coat. The products I use are powder paint products for the base and glow coat and the top coat is called "color-rite, blade and plug dip". The big problem with the colored glow, one dip stuff is that the color itself will help to cover the glow agent. By using the transparent coat for color you allow the glow-over white undercoat to get more glow to the surface and by doing it this way the top coat will sort of glow in the color you see...much like the super glow lures that are so popular now.

Hey Guys: I've found the dipping method works better for me. Yes, the undercoat will make them much brighter.. I just dip'em and place the over a rod to dry. You don't waste paint with the overspray either.... Kaz

One sugestion when curing powder paints in your wifes oven.
Put some tin foil down in case the jigs fall. Getting the paint off of hot oven surfaces can hard to do and life threating when the wife finds out.

I forgot to add, I get the type paint, where you heat the jig with a propane torch a little and then dip it. That way you don't worry about the paint not drying fast. I also put dots for eyes on them...Kaz

    • 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!
