Default Glow Baits

My feelings on glow baits are mixed, at best. I've had my best days (perch) with gold genz worms, I think they look dark (black) in the depth, but some days won't catch cold. Anybody got the science?

I like them when fishing deep for lakers, murky water and other low light situations. I think it definitely helps with the lakers.....

No science but my experience is the glow tear drops with the gold flapper deals on them do well for trout, perch, and crappie.

I agree with Mr. Tator on the 3" tubes for lakers.

Thats not so far fetched. I know guys who night fish and they clip a light sticke to a line with a big weight and drop it overboard. After awhile it will attract plankton, which then attracts bait fish which then attracts game fish. In theory it makes sense. Anyone every try it?

Try hanging a lantern up over your boat. Works greatfor crappie and other panfish but takes a little while to gather the bait fish before the crappie move in.
