Bottom thump/noisy/flashy. Sound/activity can draw them over, color could then be irrelevant but Glow or bright might not hurt

Pound bottom with something UV and rattle.  Make noise and call them in.  If it were me I'd go for a 1/8th UV orage buckshot flutter spoon and a minnow head.  If it's a big place, punch holes and do some search and destroy.  If it's small or crowded, set up and wait for schools to come through.

Perch color to try to match what they eat, at that depth you should not need glow in the dark.
