I've heard the same thing and there are a few lures using UV paint (or more often UV clearcoat) that supposedly helps the paint to "pop" visually to bass. Who knows? Maybe it's a plus on shallow crankbaits if you want them to stand out more from the environment. For deep divers, you'd probably need to use glow paint instead of a UV sensitive coating since the glow paint will store UV radiation and emit it later in dark water. I may be wrong but my thinking is the UV coating simply fluoresces when hit by UV, instead of storing UV energy and releasing it later like glow paint.
