    Light them on fire
    Jk... pick up a cheap UV light from amazon. You will no doubt have to continue to recharge the jig every 10 min or so...

    The entire day is easy. It’s during the night that it gets a little trickier.

    The "charged" time is a material function, it's not going to stay illuminated for long. Google half-life and fluorescence.

    Just use 100 lb leader and you'll learn about half-life right away.

    I timed some 200g and 250g flatfalls and after charging them for 10 minutes with an LED shoplight (not a blacklight) there was still plenty of glow from the jig after 45 minutes.

    Remember that the fish that you are targeting find plenty of food in the inky depths that have no glow.

    I and a lot of other guys have taken deep tuna on jigs that don't glow at all, Flat Fall types of other colors and Tady and Salas and many other lures. Glow just helps attract the attention of the fish at a distance.

    Light the glow lure up as often as you wish, or not at all. I personally think that the movement of the lure is more important than the glow -- or lack.
