Last week I got a lot of 100 glow sticks off ebay. I paid 5.95 with shipping. WHere could you get them that cheap anywhere else. I also ordered my daughter the glow necklaces too. The sticks are single use and the necklaces are reusable. Now if someone could direct me to where I could get some surgical tubing that's glow in the dark. All of the links on line that I have seen either want you to purchase 20' of it or have you calling a phone number.

For surf fishing I'm not to fond of the bells. If I was in the bay or in slack water I could see using them. I used the bells before and didn't care for them. Does anyone know where to get some surgical tubing glow type cheap?

I use to fish up on the Pax river at the Naval station and we had a buddy who worked for MD Dept of Transportation. He would hook us up with the reflective tape used on road signs. We'd wrap a couple of pieces on the rod tip and only a small lantern light or even moonlight would be enough light to see your rod bend.
I've seen similar tape at the hardware stores.

B-013,

Learn to work in the dark ;)

A lot of good pier & surf fishing conditions will be during low to no light. Train yourself to do it blind and work up to the comfort of a dim light :eek:

Things really get interesting when you bait up, cast out, and hook something big in total darkness :cool:

Glow sticks are optional,

Geetings all,Hope this helps.

Use automotive reflective tape, and tape a "Thill: nite-brite" replacement battery (usually $2.49 at Wally world)right above the tape with the led facing the rod butt. The nite-brite lasts for 20 hours, and you can turn it on/off, and it comes in red,amber,green. :D

Why do you need glow in the dark surgical tubing for your glow sticks? Just use plain clear plastic tubing that you can buy at any hardware store and it comes in different diameters and is sold by the foot. Put a little electrical tape on both ends. Don't use a lantern up north the fishermen at night will kill you. The same goes for the idiots shining there headlights in the water or at you.

He surgical tubing is for when I go out fishing at night, I used to use it when I fished off party boats. It was great for whiting fishing in the evening. And I used to use a small piece of it as a teaser when fishing with metal.
