Few questions regarding the Glo Shot Light Sticks. I apologize in advance if they have been answered already.

1. How long does one usually last? I heard the colder the water the less time.
2. What colour seems to be working best?
3. How effective are they? Must have for the annual trip to Nip?
4. For lure what size is best to be tipped with minnow; 1/8oz or 1/4?

Thanks for the support. Tight lines!

i can answer the first one. seemed to last about 4 hours for me last weekend. the lure glows too, so just shine your phone light on it for about 10 seconds and you're good for another 10 minutes of jigging.

We had a lot more time with ours... up to about 12 hours. if you notice the brightness fading, shake the lure vigorously and it will "recharge". Even worked the next day.

I was fishing with Pretzelboy and we started with these lures on at noon on Thursday and they were still on when we left on Sunday, changed the glow sticks a couple of times throughout the weekend. We both had steady action on them every day. I would say it would be worth picking one up if you can still find them, green glo sticks seemed to work best for us.

I'll be looking for them online next year, especially for the refills. I searched everywhere, luckily found 2 at Walmart both pink one 1/8 and one 1/4 with red glow sticks. Gonna try them out this weekend for the first time.

They catch fish, but they're no magic pill. As far as how long they last? I used one stick for the whole weekend. Two weeks later, I went to grab my tackle box out of the truck in the dark and I could still see the darn thing glowing away.

Thanks for the advice everyone. I managed to grab a 1/4oz, a 1/8oz and all three light colours from the local Canadian Tire to add to the arsenal for the upcoming trip. Let's hope we nail them. Tight Lines!

There always is... but I still want one... I've said it before and I'll say it again. Lures catch more fishermen then fish.

The worst is when you try to find a lure again and you can't. The one that bugs me the most is my Lake Ontario stuff. I have so many salmon spoons that are so beaten up and I can't buy replacements. Either the spoons don't exist anymore or I just can't find them.

I found them to be no more effective then any of the buckshot spoons with the uv coating on them, That being said my tip up with a split shot and a candy coated octopus hook on it outfished everyone.
