Interesting question! At the film producers request we were actually trying to get some squid on luminous lures at night. We failed, but it does work at times. I fly fish for sea- trout at night a lot. I have some flies fitted with luminous microlights, but in several years of trying I have yet to take a trout on them, whereas I am very successful on identical flies without the light! I have caught a lot of bass on bait at night, but have never tried a luminous lure! The bass in the film were not caught on luminous lures!often wondered if luminous lures would work better then non luminous lures anybody know.
