Angle eyes or glow devils

Recommended Posts

I can only afford a card. Which ones would you buy? Angle eyes in glow or regular? Or glow devils which size 1/16 or 1/8? Need help!

Since both isn't an option,..glow angel eyes for sure. That solid red glow is my #1 lure every where and on all species!

blackmax,
There are 1/4, 1/8, and 1/16 oz glow devils but you posted 4 different hook sizes for something. Are you refering to Glow Devils or something else? What are you using.

thats a tough one. i slam fish on both styles. can you borrow the money to get both? or you can do what i did, i got three buddies to pitch in and we bought both cards. there are too many situations where you almost need both angel eyes and glow devils.

Ever since getting the Angle Eyes a couple of years ago, I was hooked on them. But, on Saturday morning I received the Glow Devils. Had to test them out that afternoon. By far, I had even better luck with the 1/8 oz Glow Devils. Gotta have both now.

I like the Angel Eyes best. Very versatile lure. Glow and Regular Jr's are hard to beat.

If you're fishing deeper water or are in a quick search for agressive biters then Glow Devils for sure.

They both have their time and place.

If I went by the number of orders as votes, it would be Angel Eye Jr Glows, then 1/8 and 1/16th oz Glow Devils, with Angel Eye Jr Reg and 1/4 oz Glow Devils picking up the slack.

Get a card of the Glow Angel Eye Jr's. They seem to be a more versatile spoon and that slow fluttering fall is awesome on everything that swims!

Does anyone use angel eyes and glow devils during the open water seasons? I have a card of each and was wondering if they would be useful for fishing Lake Osakis crappies in Sept./Oct.

Glow Devils are now called Go Devils.

Thought I would bring this topic back up so you could see what others were saying about these hot ice fishing lures last year.

You can see them, get more info and and order them by going to TackleCity.com - CLICK HERE

In a perfect world you wouldnt have to make this decision. There are days when the Go Devil will out produce the Angle Eye... and days when the Angle Eye will out produce the Go Devil... to be honest.. I love them both!!!! Dont make me choose!

Exude-

Bring those with you to Lake of the Woods this week. Hammered Gold Angel Eye Jr. or pick up a Sr. if you can find one. Perch colored Go-Devil also produced well. Jigging spoons w/ a minnow head actively jigged were the ticket.

How do you bait those smaller ones? Minnow heads, waxies, spikes, nothing? I've tried them a few times with no success confused.gif (better luck with small jigs/minnows)

I want to get in on all the action so any advise on how to use these lures would be great!

EDIT:

Sorry for the post I just saw the topic (its been a long weekend away from the computer) blush.gif

TV BOY-

No need to apologize. You also asked a couple good questions.

I typically bait my jigging spoons with a minnow head. I just pinch the minnow in half and hook the head end through the back. I'll then proceed to drop the spoon all the way to the bottom of the lake. I'll then bring it up 6-8" or so watching on my LX-3 and proceed to jig it 4-6 inches up repeatedly. As soon as it is dropping to the bottom, I'll jig it up again so I'm continuously jigging the lure and keeping it moving. Every so often I'll drop it back down to the bottom again and then bring it up again and keep jigging.

When a fish shows up on your flasher, I'll typically keep up the same jigging I was doing. That is what attracted the fish there so I'll proceed to do the same thing. If I don't get a strike, I'll either drop the spoon to the bottom or start coming up with it 3, 4, 5, 6 feet and watch the flasher for the fishes reaction.

Sometimes they hit it right away, sometimes it'll get scooped up off the bottom, and sometimes they'll chase it up.

It can be a very effective technique. But some days, it just won't work for you. Then you'll have to switch to something a little more subtle.

(I guess I should add that I primarily use this technique for walleye but Upper Red crappies can also be suckers for the jigging spoon)

    • 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.
