I've read the hype and a few articles indicating that dipping your plastic trailer in this UV stuff is suppose to increase visibility for the fish, especially in dark/stained/muddy water.

Anyone care to comment on it? Anyone use this stuff? Thanks! :)

It will at least show up a lot farther in water. It doesn't mean the fish will bite it, but for example if you were in crystal clear water the last color that would show as it's color would be blue and that would be 40' away/deep. UV will increase that visibility something like several hundred feet. I don't remember just how far, but it was a lot. However Florescent colors also show up much better in water than just regular colors. There are lots of articles on the internet about this and you maybe should just so a search and read a little.

UV as well as Florescent colors will help the visibility a lot! The dip after you use it you can see how it works just by putting the soft plastic under a black light. Some colors like Black will show up as Blue, but some lit red will look like glowing red or Orange glowing Orange.
