At the high-water mark of design and functionality are Choice Snagless Bucktails. Tried-and-true fish-attracting color patterns are elevated with premium materials and custom components. Using the backbone of specialized wire form construction, each lure is hand-tied with pattern-specific detail and capped with a custom color head. Around each lure body, additional lighter guage wires are formed into hook guards that protect each hook from snags. These guards are gently pushed below the hook and the tension is released when the fish bite down. This improved functionality not only fends off persistent snags, but will give any angler added confidence to fish areas otherwise often avoided such as flooded timber, bullrushes, lily pads, rock reefs and dense weedbeds. These hook guards can also be stowed over the bend of the hook for fishing in snag-free areas at your choosing for maximum hookup percentage. Each bucktail is crafted with premium soft materials such as deer hair, marabou and Whiting hackle.
Multiple options allow you to build just the right bucktail. Choose your tail color pattern, body weight size and finish, blade type and size, blade color and clevis type. This is the first product to offer two clevis types. Our standard stirrup clevises keep the blades on permanently or opt to use the swap clevises and interchange blades as desired. These are heavy duty components and hold on to the blades as never seen before! Additional blades are available to pair with bucktails using the swap clevis in our Bucktail Extras section. This is a great system for utilizing more blade color combinations with fewer lures cluttering your tackle box!
Weight varies depending on options selected from 0.9 to 1.4 oz. Choose 1/4 ounce body weight for standard 1-3 ft depth retrieve or the 1/2 ounce body weight for a deeper running lure.
Bantam size tails are pictured here with a single French 7 blade. These patterns are a smaller profile and do not use marabou as in our standard size Single Tails. Some hair and feather Single Tails are pictured but will be built in this Bantam Tail size. Select the color options in the dropdown menus for photos.
