This last spring I went down to one of the local backwatters of the Yakima/Columbia river delta, was fishing strictly bottom in the early spring. Since I don't have a boat I am relegated to bank fishin. I got my pole set up & baited tossed it in & set it in my home made pole holde, and realized I fort my tackle bag that had my clip on brass cowbells in it. I dug around in my tackle bags & truck to see what if anything I could use instead of my headlamp or Maglight to tell when I get a bite. All I could find in my truck was a few large glowsticks, & I remebered seeing someone using glowsticks hung from the eyes of a pole. I thought I could figure a better way to use em, so I got a double snap swivel out and put a 3/4 oz weight on the big end, & hooked the small end through the hole on the top of the glowstick, the ones I have have a hook buit into the top of the stick, so I tightened up my line, then I hung the weighted glow stick from my line inbetween the 2nd & 3rd eye from the tip of the rod & pulled about 12" of line off the reel so the glowstick hung down 2/3 the way to the ground. the theory is when the cats bite the glowstick will rise thus telling my I have a bite & I don't run my flashlight/headlamp batteries dead. This worked like a charm, caught 3 cats that I would have missed cause they bit just light enought to make the glow stick rise an ich or so, and 2 that hit soo hard the glowstick went flying 3 feet away. Now I always have 4-6 glow sticks in my tackle bag as an optional bite indicator.
