Years ago did some testing of the concept. Nothing was conclusive good or bad, there were benefits and issues. As many have stated lobster will find the bait by smell/scent and other means. You have to put your nets in the correct spot each night, which is a bigger nut you need to crack first. My short answer is it’s a waste of time and mental energy. John.I know this has been gone over in years past in BD, but why not ask? I saw these small glow sticks at party city, and thought about stuffing one in the bait cages. Anyone tried these? I know, the enemy of good is better! I thought in dirty water...maybe?

I bought those. Caught more stingray orgies than I care for. Ripped the glow plastic rings off and started attracting the right kind.They were selling nets with glow in the dark rings once upon a time. So I assume they can work. I do agree that they are more likely to cause more seal problems than they will attract lobsters though.
