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

    • friend good luck to you and your wife!!!!   I do know where you are at....  my prayers to ya............
    • Anyone been out this past week? My bird hunting has been cut short this year so I am depending on others to keep me up to date. My wife has Breast Cancer and is starting radiation treatments soon, lasting a good part of October. I may be able to do some deer hunting depending how she is feeling. She has had surgery and the outlook is great and she feels great so that's the main thing. Good luck to all you hunters.
    • dont everyone post at once!!!!!!🤣😂 hummers bailed from itasca county, got a couple still around cold spring, seen them yesterday. but i havent seen any robins in a while. anyone else???????????????????????????????????
    • My routing was keep all the drive train zerks greased every few outings, change oil & filter yearly and front and rear diff by-yearly unless I did a lot of swamp running.  There are a bunch of helpful videos on the Tube. 
    • I was out today putting up a deer stand and came across a lobster mushroom. I don't think I have seen any this late before. I will be enjoying the little gem tonight.
    • thanks for the write-up - and great pics!  hopefully these stories will keep me interested until i have my own west hunt.   good luck to all
    • Always enjoy the "out west" write ups!!!  I really appreciate you taking the time to share your journey!! 
    • Well I wasn’t going to do any fluid changes untill next fall but it’s been a little more than a year and I just clicked 1k miles. About 30-40 hours since last oil change. I think I’m just going to do it. So last time I just took it to a dealer but it’s expensive, the machine is gone for at least a week and it’s a hassle to deal with dropping off and picking up. So I think I’m going to try it myself. I’ve changed oil on things many times before so this isn’t anything new. I’m going to get ahold of my dealer and see what I need and have them walk me through the steps. I want to change the oil, the front and rear gear case oil and I’d like to do the transmission fluid also. I also just saw Polaris has a deal now through the 1st of oct for $10 off an oil change kit. So I think I just need an oil change kit and a quart of gearcase oil? I also have a new spark plug I’ll through in and go through the machine like I always do every few months. I know @leech~~ had a magnum what did you always do for maintence? 
    • enjoyed the story but this view is incredible  your lucky you get to hunt there
