This Mean For Walleye Fishermen
all, walleye have superior sight capabilities in low light conditions.
They tend to suspend off the bottom and come into the shallows
at night or during the day when a chop is on the water.
The chop tends to prevent the light from entering the water
thus attracting walleyes into the shallows where they have a
much greater sight advantage over the bait fish.
Couple this with the fact that the ultraviolet rays still manage
to penetrate the water thus providing glow to your glow lure
even on cloudy days and you have a fish catching combination.
So what may not be obvious to you becomes very obvious to the
hungry walleye at depths unseen by the human eye. The
glowing lure takes on more contrast and flash in the lower light
conditions in the aquatic world. This makes it an easier
target to follow and attack with predatory instinct.
In essence, the glow lure carries the sunlight with it causing
it to show the colors of the lure in their truest state at depths
up to 30 ft or more. It is very simple; these lures are
fish attracting machines in lower light conditions.
The Key to
More Effective Glow Pattern Lures
true in the non-glow world still holds true in the glow world.
You canít simply tie on a glowing glob of plastic or lead and
expect this to trigger the predatory instinct of a walleye.
The lure must have an effective presentation, good vibration,
realistic action and must be a good imitation. Painting
a lure in one color glow does not represent reality to feeding
walleye. Painting in contrasting colors, with realistic
baitfish patterns, is necessary to trigger a feeding frenzy.
Make sure the patterns are distinctive. Ensure that
the scales on the lureís profile stand out with the use of light
and dark color contrast. Look for creative color patterns
such as the contrasting underbelly of a walleyes favorite baitfish.
Simply put Ė glow in and of itself ó is not enough. The
glow must represent a realistic imitation of a baitfish Ė wounded
or otherwise. Bottom line, not all glow patterns
are created the same. Do your homework.
When It Comes
to Glow, ďThe Eyes Have ItĒ
of the baitfish represent a lot to a feeding walleye.
Instinctively the walleyes are processing information.
Is this a baitfish? What direction is the baitfish swimming?
Does the fish need to be maneuvered for head first swallowing?
Is this fish injured?
The use of
oversized 3D eyes that glow can be very stimulating to feeding
walleye. Bottom line, the eyes, when exaggerated,
can increase the strike ratio. Walleyes just canít stop
themselves from hitting a baitfish with such an alluring feature.
PK Glow Lures have trademarked glow eyes and have perfected
the use of this alluring technique. These lures
cannot be out performed by any other glow lure on the market.
Why? Because of the painstaking detail that has gone into every
aspect of each lure they produce.
take all these factors into account when carrying a line of
glow lures. PK glow lures have proven to have all the
elements needed to be fish attracting machines.
Without the glow patterns, these lures work extremely well.
Add the distinctive, contrasting color glow schemes and get
ready to fill up the live well. The cranks have the right
wobbling action and vibration to fool the craftiest of walleye.
Add the rattle and the distinctive glow patterns and these lures
cannot be out-fished. The spoons are enhanced by
the glow contrasting patterns. What was already a highly
effective lure turns into a killer attractant in low visibility
conditions. Add the 3D glowing eyes and get ready for
some serious action.
If we, at
a line of lures that out fished the glow line of PKís ó believe
me we would. But you really canít improve on near
perfection. We decided to carry PK Lures instead of competing
with them. It really was the only option we had.
