A few words about the bucktail

October 25th 2012 01:30
bucktail jig
This jig has been retired but is available in many colors and weights.
Bucktais have been around a long time and are often an excellent bait. In fact, they are often just the thing when nothing else works.

A spinner like this will land a Musky.

The design of bucktails is fairly simple-- you have a heavy head with deer hair tied to them. BUT you know how things are these days—a lot of companies are using synthetic fibers instead of true deer hair. And back in the day, it was a sure bet the head would be lead but as things have moved toward more environmentally friendly metals, that has changed too. Today, the term HAIRJIG is often used interchangeably None the less, the idea is they will look like a minnow in the water, and can be made in just about any size to match different baitfish. Better still, they’re a fairly versatile lure.

Bucktails are great is you're fishing the surf or doing some inshore work. Bass, stripers, cobia, or even Musky are some of the fish that will bite on a bucktail.

If the bite is slow, give bucktails a try. No matter what you’re after, bucktails may be just the thing!

Remember to take the hooks outta yer pocket before ya sit down!
