"Hi, Rob. Now when Christmas is coming I thought to post a short review of Viper's efishency.
I was trolling with the SandViper BB in late Oktober and believe me or not I managed to catch over 50 northern pikes in 3 days ! Thank You for a great lure ! Merry Christmas to all of you. "
You may think that Spaddler's luminous bib is designed to attract the fish. Well, you'd be right! There's no doubt it makes Spaddler easier for fish to see on a dark night - not that they really need our help to zero in and attack prey items.
We think the main benefit of the glow-in-the-dark bib is to you, the angler. How often have you been lure casting from a boat towards a tree-lined bank at night and had trouble judging the distance? How often have you strained to hear the sound of your surface walking lure so you could judge where it was as you retrieved it? Do you know exactly where your surface lure is heading when you've cast into the blackness?
We've experienced those problems so we guess they are issues for lots of nocturnal lure tossers. So how good is it that Spaddler's luminous bib acts as a guidance system for anglers?
You carry a torch when fishing at night, yeah? Give Spaddler's bib a few seconds in the limelight and it will glow for minutes (even without a torch-assisted charge these bibs will glow).
Then watch the path of the lure when you cast. It will arc towards your target out there in the blackness like a shooting star. You can easily track its direction and distance to drop it closer to your target than you're used to with a non-glowing lure.
After touchdown, you can still see where Spaddler is. Now it's easier to work the lure in the strike zone, or track it as you wind it back. It's all good!
NOTE: On bright moonlit nights, the luminous bib is less of an advantage. The higher ambient light levels mean that the luminous bib doesn't stand out so much. But cast in to a bank shaded from the moon by vegetation and you will see the difference.
FACT: With 10 colours to choose from, there are bound to be a few that will suit the fish in your area. Dealers! - all MinMin colours are available, but the 10 shown here are the standard range. Click the thumbnail to see a larger image.
