I see that cabelas has tightlines uv crappie grubs on their site and they claim crappie can see them 80% better? Any of you guys had any experience with them? I am looking for an edge while night fishing... Not sure if these are worth it or not at 5.99 per 10... What do you guys think?

I just bought some UV jig head powder paint I want to try as well. I painted a few jigs with glow in the dark powder paint and used glow in the dark Bobby Garland baby shad and I was catching them easily during night time. I will let you know how the UV paint works as well when I try them out. I know it's not UV grub but I am hoping it helps.

The last step in powder painting of all my crappie and bass jigs and spoons is a dip in UV Blast. I believe it makes a difference and it certainly helps my confidence level.

Tried some pink-chartreuse uv crappie grubs yesterday. Had real good luck with them. I caught twenty fish, my friends caught four - using other grubs. There must be something to this uv stuff, it worked for me.

If I am not mistaken, one needs uv light (i.e. sunlight) to activate the special visibility properties of the uv grubs and jigs. If you are looking for something to use night fishing, I would think that the glow jigs and grubs would be more visible to the fish.

I just make mine myself. They are great for pre dawn fishing. The best powders are glow green and glow blue. Here is the post. http://www.crappie.com/crappie/showthread.php/235777-Made-my-first-glow-in-the-dark-lures

Bugtussle they have UV flashlights that store in your tacklebox to activate the glow in dark lures. c.com sells them also. http://www.crappiewear.com/Crappiecom-9-LED-Flashlight_p_18.html It is part number 118

Ship, I believe people are getting confused by the terminology. The uv flashlights will make the glow lures glow, but the uv paint jobs that have become more popular in recent years on jigs, spoons and crankbaits will not glow after the light from the uv flashlight is removed, hence the uv properties of these lures that make them more visible underwater will only occur while they are being exposed to the ultraviolet light from the sun.http://www.fishingclub.com/magazine/articles/articletype/articleview/articleid/3302/the-bright-future-of-uv-lures
