    I'm really getting into the idea of using those glow stiks. Perhaps in a gallon milk jug, 2 oz. weight, one gold fish n - - - let her float!
    Anyone do this?

    i have used glow sticks with my ballons before i use to tape them on but a boc member had a good idea told me to try putting the glow stick inside the ballon. i also use 2 ounce sinker and make my ballons about tennis ball size works great for me.

    I am not familiar with this technique. Can anyone help out a rookie by providing some details of this set up. Thanks

    well basically using some kind of float ( bobbers) i like ballons myself (cheap) and putting glow sticks on them so u can see them at night. i have my hook on the bottom come up a foot or 2 tie on my sinker usually 2 to 4 ounces depending on size of live bait then tie on the ballon or float of your choice at what ever depth u desire i usually do this in some what shallow water 2 to 10 foot and try to keep my bait around what i think is 2 foot off the bottom. slip floats work well for deeper situations they sell both the glow sticks and slip floats at wal mart. its fun way to fish watching the float take off and disapear:smile2: not knowing if its a 2 lber or a 100 lber.

    :roll_eyes:Gary,
    I use them on my jugs ( swim noodles ) just push them into the foam they stay on good. You can see them for about 1/8 mile when the jug stands up. Only way to go for jug fishing at night.

    I use the gow sticks on my kat bobbers love watching them at night. also I put them up close to end of pole and boy can you see your pole.That works real good.
    Guess I'm gonna have to order somemore Kat Bobbers from Mr Gene. I had one i called my lucky bobberCan't recall how many times I lost it,got it back however last Sunday I wasn't so lucky.Got it hung up and yep lost it again down at Clarksville Dam. So Skipeye if you find a KatBobber floating down at Winfield Dam IT'S MINE>:roll_eyes: Figured the rate it was travelin it would be there by dark.
    Anyway getting back to question at hand THEYWORK GREAT

    I love using the glow sticks. I use a stick bobber, and attach the glow stick to the stick portion (TOP).
    Whats nice about this, is if i lose my bait somehow, or my bait hits the ground, the glow stick won't stick straight up.

    But when my bait is on the hook, and is not laying on the ground, the glow stick points straight up.
    I use em without any sinker, just a big chunk of doughbait, and a hook.
    It's pretty cool when they hit it, and you watch the glow travel with the fish under water.

    Or you can attach the glow stick to the end of your rod, if you want to fish on the bottom. You can't miss a strike with that glow stick on there. And on a night with no moon, those suckers can be pretty bright...
