FISH SEE FORAGE MINNOWS® LIKE NEVER BEFORE
NORTHLAND OPTICALLY BRIGHTENS LIFELIKE FORAGE MINNOW® FAMILY
WITH REFLECTIVE UV FINISHES
Bemidji, Minn.—Gamefish see Northland’s proven Forage Minnow® Series better than ever, even in dirty water and low-light conditions, thanks to a new optically brightening, high-vis UV finish that catches and reflects the sun’s ultraviolet rays.
“Similar to glow finishes, UV coatings make lures more visible to fish,” says tournament champion and veteran guide Scott Glorvigen. “But because a fish’s eyes are different than our own, it’s hard for us to appreciate the increased visibility. That is, until we start schooling anglers who aren’t using UV baits.”
Glorvigen has harnessed the power of ultraviolet light for perch and walleyes, and is convinced we’ve only touched the tip of the iceberg in UV applications. “It’s a factor in shallow water during low-light periods, in stained water, and in deep water as well,” he says. “Optical enhancements to the Forage Minnow® family give us even greater options for tapping UV finishes as a fish-attracting tool.”
The UV Forage Minnow® Fry mimics a juvenile panfish in color, profile and size, making it a deadly weapon wherever crappies and other predators wax fat on young pans. Adding attraction, the flat body offers an erratic action, while the extended hook shank engenders easy tipping with soft plastics such as IMPULSE® Tapeworm.
A flash and flutter standout, the UV Forage Minnow® Jig excels with a variety of jig strokes, and is equally effective in deadstick applications when paired with a lively minnow. For its part, the UV Forage Minnow® Spoon owes its erratic, crippled-minnow action and phenomenal flutter to its unique shape and flat sides.
The UV Forage Minnow® Fry is available in 1/16- and 3/32-ounce sizes and retails for $3.99 per two-card. UV Forage Minnow® Jigs come in 1/16- and 1/8-ounce sizes and retail for $3.99 per two. UV Forage Minnow® Spoons are available in 1/32-, 1/16-, 1/8- and 1/4-ounce options with an MSRP of $3.49 apiece.
