Glow Devils - Myth or Reality?

Recommended Posts

Going on a South Dakota fishing trip in a couple of weeks, and have been anxiously awaiting my delivery of Glow Devils I ordered on Dec. 19th. I heard some were being shipped out about two weeks ago, but not to my house. Thus, I am starting to wonder if these are just a big myth?

Only got one 21" walter on it and a few perch. But i haven't used it that much. Yes they work. I like the glow perch color. Good luck out there.

Like any other lure they have their time and place. I really like the glow/perch as well. The smallest one works real well on Crappie and Perch with waxies or spikes.

After hearing all the GLOWING comments about them I order a couple cards to try. Every time I've tried them I've ended up going back to the pimple. I've got 20 to 30 hours of fishing time on various colors with little to show for it, but fishing always improves when I go to the pimple. Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but I wouldn't say that there is anything magical about them.

So if you were fishing for crappies and perch, what size would be best? 1/16 I have found a store that has all colors and a good price. Don't have a lot of money, but willing to buy some. Just wondering on size! Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Duckman8,

The 1/16oz is a good choice for crappies and perch. Red glow and glow perch are both awesome colors, as is the pink and white. Sometimes up-sizing to the 1/8oz is a good choice as well. I like to tip my Glow Devils with maggots when fishing crappies and perch, minnow heads are good too. The 1/8oz are good for a perch/walleye combo too.

Good Fishin,
Matt Johnson

I caught 6 crappies all over 11" on Sunday with a 1/16 glow/perch colored glow devil, my buddy was using a red glow and landed two over 13.

The glow red have been a hot ticket for a lot of species for me so far this year. Crappies, walleye, perch, and catfish. The glow perch and chartruese/orange are a couple other good colors. But like Northlander said, the situation doesn't always call for a spoon when your out on the ice.

Good Fishin,

The glow red has been dynamite for me this year. When all else fails I go to the glow red and it usually produces. Have caught pike, walleye, perch, and crappies this year. The other color I have had decent success on is the hammered gold.

As with all lures there are times when they shine and times that something else will work a little better.I personally have at least one tied to a rod all the time.I have had some really good success with them for a number of species.
I think the fact that they are having trouble filling orders is testiment to the fact that they really do work.

If you are indoubt, check the Archives. I have written extensively on this subject. They are my go to spoon always!

As for not getting the product you ordered, I can't help there. But I bet someone is working to clear that up already.

I'm not doubting that they work. I would just like a simple answer as to when??

It would have been nice to know that they were on backorder at he time of ordering.

If its going to take a month to get them thats fine.Just tell everyone so we are'nt waiting like a kid on christmas.

I get depressed everyday I open the mailbox and no Devils inside frown.gif

I talked with Jeff of Scenic Tackle, he told me they shipped enough to fill every order we have and more so we will not be in backorder status.

When you order now it does say backordered. It's first come first served as well. Bear in mind that if we are ever in backorder status again, it will state that on your order.

If you really want your Glow Devils or Angel Eyes fast and at a great price, now is the time to order. We expect to have them no later than Thursday and will fill all outstanding orders. We will also be able to fill a number of new orders right away.

I advise you to order now to get your orders late this week or early next week.

Thanks all for your patience. We do appreciate it VERY much.

    • Interesting. I have used it in the past and have better results with nutty butter. SOn in law shot doezilla last week and the fat was unbelievable on her. I saved a few nice chunks and will put it out to see what happens. 
    • yep. first cut them off with the meat saw. Then cut again with hack saw. Then a little bit of filing. Takes a while but no mess.well, not much anyway. lol 
    • Wow, I didn't think single stage versus 2 stage snow throwers would become a Ford vs Chevy conversation.  My take is that for the average home owner with a flat, concrete/asphalt, standard three stall garage wide driveway, the single stage should suffice.  I will continue using my 2 stage at the cabin on the driveway and gravel parking/walkways.   Leech has me concerned on the Honda single stage, so now I just need to determine which to buy.
    • I wasn't planning on going due to the project list getting longer but I took my 7 year old out to sit last weekend. We got home and he was telling his mom all about it and how cool it was seeing deer walk by and how he wished there was more time in the season. That was when the wife asked why I wasn't going to go during muzzleloader and that I should go so I can take him out again. I felt like I had to be a good husband and just agree with her. Sometimes it's about compromising with your wife just to keep the peace in the house. 
    • I would bet that there will be people out on smaller lakes in the Detroit Lakes area this weekend. 
    • If time allows I will get out for a couple walks in the woods with the muzzy.  I didn't get anything with the gun and have yet to buy a bow license cuz time was spent chasing fall walleyes opposed to deer.  Good Luck to those that get out!!
    • Looks nice. You must have to be real careful with the saw to get clean even cuts and the bases.
    • Very cool, love the woodpeckers.  I save fat from my deer to feed them all winter. They seem to prefer that to the store bought suet cakes.
