    Yes, I have cought quite a few trout on glow bugs using spining gear. They work well in areas with a bit of current where you let the glow bug drift in the current using it a bit like a jig.

    I normally use a 1m trace with a 1/2oz sinker above the swivel.

    cool, thanks
    would they work in lakes and do they float above the sinker?

    They sink down with the sinker which is what you want in places like the Tekapo canal where most fish sit near the bottom. Ive heard of people using floats with glow bugs but have never tried this myself.

    Ive Never tried them in lakes ether so cant really comment on wether they would work or not.

    I fish the canals spinning with a lure, although it never occured to me to use a glow bug in there.
