You do get different quality beads. Some will glow from a few minutes and others a few hours. I have recently ordered 10 000 X 12mm beads that are supposed to glow for a few hours.

I use glow beads for protecting knots and keeping skirts from pulling over the hook as well as any night fishing or deep water fishing as an attractant.

Even if it only glows for 10 minutes, it's better than nothing at all.

Hey Bennie ,

When we were at HITW , we just thought we would try it ,

Unfortunately i think we used normal glow beads & not some of teh brands that you mentioned etc ...

We heated up the bead & put it in a glass of tap water & within a minute it was gone ...
lost it's glow ...

Perhaps when you get your beads you can do a test for us !!!

Personally i wud rather go for a glow stick until i get some good beads !!!

Cheers

What made you do that? Heat it up or light it up? How hot did you make it?
I got beads from different suppliers at home, I'll try it tonight.

I think time does play a part, but within reason. If you flash the bead in the light for 2 seconds it wont glow as bright or as long as if you do for 2 minutes. 2 hours would/should make no difference. I'll do some different experiments.

The surecatch ones died fairly quickly and the others went on to just under 10 min. In or out of water made no difference.

Next experiment. Charge for 1 hour vs 1 min.

The beads.. For beck fishing off the boat, sometimes 5min is long enough. If they are there they will eat. Besides we drift for 5 min. then the bait comes out and put at the light. Down for 5 again!

Photoluminescent Pigment

Photoluminescence is a feature of a specialised pigments which glow bright in dark conditions. These pigments absorb ultra-violet light from any light source and store this energy. In dark conditions, this energy is slowly released in the form of visible light for a period of up to 12 hours.

 Alkaline earth aluminate pigment is a new type of pigment that exhibits extremely high brilliance and long afterglow times. The luminosity and after-glow time are over 30 times that of traditional Zns products.  These pigments are used as additives in a variety of applications including paints, plastics and resins.

Interresting facts guys......thanks.

so the question remains do they work? A glow bead or a skirt?

would apear that the only purpose a bead would serve is as a spacer to protect your knots.

what about a skirt, at night or in dirty water no purpose, rather get as much smell in the water as posible. In clean water a piece of shiny sardine skin or makkie skin will do just as much a shiny skirt to attrack the fish. right or wrong?

Skrops,
I still think if you get decent beads for night fishing it does work, be it for 10min. They are so cheap, if it gives you a 10min advantage, it's still 10min. If there is fish nearby they will spot it, but if you fishing in a desert.. Well thats a different story, then only smell will attract them.

My friend and I argued about the use of glow beads and whether they work or not until one night we tested it... He caught 4 fish which were all different species on a glow bead and i caught 1 sea barbel without a glow bead so i personally think they work!

Been using glow beads for a looong time for bottom fishing. I definitely noticed an increased hookup rate since putting them on. My dad once used a trace without them and me with a trace with them and I caught more and better fish. we were fishing back to back on the boat, so it was the same reef and alles.

They work
