Once you get 8-10 feet from the surface the water will be extremely dark... perfect for you glow lures. Different colors travel different distances through water. Blue the farthest, green next, yellow, orange, and reds in decreasing order of distance traveled.
For example, a bright orange lure will actually look like a grey shade to fish Fisherman find lures that have gold or silver on them to be very effective due to the "flash " element added.
Our many customers including tackle manufacturing companies find that enhancing lures with a bit of "glow" creates they same effect that entices fish. The glow attracts the fish from a greater distance but the lure needs to be realistic and bait-like when the predator fish swims in and decides to attack or not.

A lot of people think that glowing lures are best for night fishing and murky water. They ACTUALLY work even better in mid afternoon. Glowing lures are charged by ultraviolet light. On a bright sunny day, the sunlight is full of UV rays that charge these lures.
