It's your call of course........
On the other hand.......
All the best fishing hoochies have eyes and the better ones have red behind the eyes......the cheapcrap hoochies that have lousy painted eyes with no red and a black pinhole pupil do not fish as well as ones like Yozuri for example.
All plugs have eyes....
Me personally I catch more fish with spoons with eyes...I have eyes on both sides of the spoons....one eye has red behind it.
Tomic puts eyes on their spoons.
True spoons do work without eyes.....but I think they work better with 'em myself.
There are eyes and there are eyes......I like the straight Glow eye, which is pretty well all I use these days.
I was using the plastic eyes ....but.....not necessary...the stick-on ones work fine.
Guides I know even put bugly eyes on their strip and teaser heads for better results.
I don't think the fish down there go "Hey Larry...did you just see the spoon that went by?......sort of a Monet finish with just a touch of Dali..I'm gonna smash that one."
The baitfish they catch all have eyes..........
Then again, herring don't glow either....but glow spoons work.
I take it you have access to a great facility and equipment plus finishes at your disposal due to your occupation (or old occupation)....
You are a fortunate guy......
(First thing I do when I paint a spoon is remember the name ROY G. BIV
stands for red,orange , yellow, green,blue,indigo, ultra-violet.
These are the order in which colrs disappear in the water column at depth.
Fluorescent colors do not disappear as fast as ordinary colors.
Then I check 'em in the dark with a black light to see if the colors "pop"
All fluo colors "pop"...lots of ordinary colors don't.
If they "pop" fish can see them better at depth.
I usually fish over 100ft deep most of the time.
Most store bought hoochies and spoons don't glow too long....one hour and they are about done.
There are glow coatings that will glow brighter and way longer than one hour.
Surprising how many off-the shelf ordinary colors have absolutely no "pop" to them at all...in fact some look downright ugly under blacklight.
