1/8oz Bucktail Banana Jig
THE BUCKTAIL JIG, ONE OF THE MOST WIDELY TRAVELLED LURES OF ALL TIME
A multi-species and technique jig, the pulse of bucktail on a well worked jig is a proven fish attractor.
- 'forged' 1/0 Eagle Claw or Mustad XXH UltraPoint hooks.
- premium powder paint, oven baked to form a super durable finish.
- clear overcoat for added finish durability.
- glow colours can be charged up with a torch or light, they will then glow in the dark. UV light will provide the best charge.
- bucktail hand bound to jig head, binding sealed with epoxy resin for longevity.
- dual pearl mylar strips inside tail.
- hand painted enamel eyes.
- inshore fish such as skippy, snook, flathead and flounder
Jigging – the natural, hollow bucktail tail material will pulse behind the jig as it is jigged, the dual, mylar tail strip inserts will catch any light as the tail material pulses out and provide additional, fish attracting flash. Try and use the lightest jig possible (within reason), let sink to the desired depth and then flick jig upwards by lifting the rod tip, retrieve slack and then repeat, the jig will slowly rise through the water column.
Cast, flick, retrieve – a great technique when chasing flathead and flounder around shallow flats and sandbars. Cast the jig out, let it sink to the bottom, then flick it forward with a flick of the rod, causing a puff of sand as the jig jumps off the bottom, wind up the slack as you drop the rod and repeat, the hit normally coming on the pause/drop when you wind up the slack.
Turn and burn – if you are working a bucktail and see fish feeding in the vicinity, a high speed retrieve will often elicit a strike.
After use, wash your bucktails in fresh water, gently straighten the tail material and allow to dry naturally. Store separately from other lures as the hollow material can easily crimp if crushed/squashed against heavy lures or sinkers stored in your tackle bag.
