    I don't know if it glows. I doubt it, but it is good string. That's what I've been useing after trying several more expensive brands with disappointing results. No problems with cajun yet. Welcome to the BOC bro!!

    CJ,
    Any line that says flourescent on it will glow under a blacklight and you can buy your lights at just about any major tackle shop. The bad thing about it is you have to carry a source of power. I myself am a bank fisherman and this makes it rough but the results are worth it. When doing this use no other light sources such as lanterns etc.... I also noted that you are in the lawn service business and I too run my own lawn service on the side !!!!!!!!!

    i used to think my wife was crazy for wanting all the colored line. after letting her buy some i found out it is very easy to see. now all we use is cajun line. works great.

    I just respooled my reels with Cajun Red Cast (8#). As far as I can tell, the line has fairly low memory; it doesn't curl as much as what I used to use. I haven't really noticed any difference in casting distance, but the prevailing winds make it hard to judge things objectively. The big difference for me is that I can now *see* my line in overcast weather.

    i dont have blacklights yet, but do use a green fish attractant light and am a bank fisher myself. what ya might try is what i do. I use a sealed unspillable 12v battery thats small enough to put in my backpack (deer feeder battery). ya just need to know what amp draw the light will have. my lil battery is an 8amp/hour battery and the light i use draws only 1/2 amp, so theorettically i should get 16 hours before my battery is dead. i think someone on a post here somewhere said one of the blacklights he has uses 2 amps, so an 8 amp battery would give you 4 hours.

    Cajun line will not flourese under blacklight, I have tried a few different blacklights of different wavelengths and It will not "glow". I think this is due to the fact that the colors red and ultraviolet are at opposite ends of the light spectrum, which basically means that red has a lower "power" so to say than the ultraviolet and its color is diffused easier. I hope that you can make sense of that. With that said, I absolutly love Cajun Line, great stuff it helped me catch my personal best a 40 lb blue cat on 12 lb Cajun Lightning, I emailed the Shakespere company and they sent me a thank you package with hat, patch, and line.

    Are you guys talkin about sheakspear red cajn line. I spooled a reel a month ago but haven't caught anything on that rod yet. I always use braided so I am a little nervous about using it.

    Yes, I believe that is what they are talking about.

    I don't think you need to be too concerned about using it. Catfish are not terribly line shy.

    They hunt and feed mostly by smell not by sight. They have the most sensitive sense of smell and most highly developed olefactory of all fresh water fish.

    I have not used it myself, but I know many people who use it for catfishing and they have good success with it. I have used other Hi-vis lines for other applications though. Mostly so I can see my line above the water when the light conditions are rather flat and there are a lot of snags that I want to avoid.

    If you have concerns still, just tie on a short leader of florocarbon line.

    some people say that the red line disappears very quick compared to other colors of line..... cats are not line shy.... as far as how they feed, I thought that I have caught some giant black bass only to have found that a big cat has jumped on my crank bait..... "they were looking" as the jumped on it..... they are the best at smelling..... " the whole body smells" when they are feeding everything is in "full recognition"

    dont know if it glows but its good stuff havent had any problems with it at all. One thing I have noticed is that the color fades over time but then all line fades to some degree.
