Bucktail Banana Jigs


  • Eagle Claw for fishing light tackle (not suited for medium(+) braid)
  • Mustad XXH if you want to fish heavier (suited to medium(+) braid)

Perhaps the most widely traveled lure of all time is the bucktail jig. So universal is its success that the bucktail jig was a critical component in the fishing survival kit issued to World War II servicemen.

Designed to be cast and retrieved back with a jerk and pause action. This will allow the jig to rise and fall like a darting baitfish, at the same time the premium bucktail will pulse, bringing the jig to life.

Target Species:

  • smaller sizes suitable for flathead, flounder, skippy, herring, sooty grunter.
  • medium sizes suitable for various trevally, queenfish, mackerel, pink snapper, mangrove jacks, fingermark, saltwater barramundi, coral trout etc.
  • large sizes suitable for tropical demersals such as XOS fingermark, black jewfish, rankin cod, red emperor, cods, coral trout etc.


  • 'forged' Eagle Claw OR Mustad XXH hooks.
  • premium powder paint, oven baked to form a super durable finish.
  • clear overcoat for added finish durability.
  • hand painted enamel eyes.
  • glow coloured heads can be charged up with a torch or light, they will then glow in the dark.
  • premium Wapsi bucktail.
  • pearl Mylar strips inside the tail.
  • tails hand bound, bindings sealed with epoxy resin for longevity. 

#Note - Actual length of bucktail on the jig may vary from jig to jig due to the organic nature of the material.
