What I do for a living:


  1. LI_Angler


    As I replenish my supply of bucktails, I was wondering if anyone finds particular brands to be more durable, or any brands that are less durable? Also, if you have any favorite types or brands, I would be interested to hear. Most of my fishing is from shore for stripers or blues. Thanks.
  2. Does anyone put eyes on their homemade smiling bill and bullet bucktail jigs? Going to start making my own. Want to see some examples. Also what size eyes would you put on a bullet bucktail jig head? Thanks
  3. What are everyone's method on labeling weights of plugs for bucktails and needle fish? I hear some scratch the weight on for bucktails. Writing the ounces with black or white sharpie on needle fish seems like another way to me. Thankyou.
  4. WTB: JOEBAGGS BUCKTAIL Blurple and White 1 1/2 oz, 2 oz, and 3 oz
  5. So they say there are no stupid questions.... Any hints on how to tell the weight of a bucktail without using a scale. I've got a whole bunch of 1/2-1 1/2 oz bucktails in my bag and they tend to get all mixed up. Any thoughts or tricks are appreciated.

  11. Hello all, Here I have a bucktail pouch that was made by a friend of mine. Used but in Great condition. Will hold upto 5oz bucktails. Added Plastic inserts to keep the pouch open. Asking: $75 shipped
  12. Any idea what is this line tie for? When you already have one in the middle of the weighted head? Connecting the leader to the middle line tie gives me better action than the one on the nose. Also, this is a 1oz Mustad Bucktail. Think the lure, or the hook is too large for its size?
  13. How many bucktails do you lose in a year? How many days a year are you out? Are there any major factors that cause you to snag?
  14. 1. Does your favorite bucktail jig have eyes? 2. If so, what style is it? (holographic, foil, red, etc.) 3. From the above pictures, which eyes would you prefer if you were making your own bucktail jig? Or none? I am deciding on the eyes to use for my homemade bucktail. I am leaning toward the foil eyes (right). Thank you for your input.
  15. Hey guys recently got an 8'6" inshore rod with extra fast action rod rated for 3g-12g lures. Living in MA, I have plans to fish smaller species- namely, schoolies, flounder, and blues. Have been looking to increase my inventory of light surf fishing lures. So far, I have some Spro Bucktails rated from 7g-14g and a Smithwick Suspending Rattlin Rogue 3/8oz Jerkbait. Having casted the Smithwick jerkbait, I noticed that it's quite poor at casting- the lure seems to tumble quite a bit... I was wondering if you guys could recommend me some sub 1/2oz minnow baits/poppers that are more capable of going the distance. Ideally, the plugs are less than 10 dollars each. It seems that the heavier lures have the internal weight transfer system, while the lighter ones don't. Some lures I've been looking at are the X-Rap series as well as the Yozuri Crystal Minnow series, but I'm curious to as whether you guys have found any cheaper alternatives [ideally anything under 10 dollars] I've seen tons of cool looking lures on AliExpress, but don't have any experience with them, so if anyone has any lures that they swear by from Ali, I'd be open to hearing about it!
  16. Show your best/worst terminal failure. Let's see how that one big fish owned you and what it left you with. Provide a short story and if possible a picture included. Will also be interesting to see what brands fail more than others. Ex: hooks, split rings, swivels. Here's mine. This is a mustad 34185 8/0 jig hook bent out by a very big fish. Fish ate it me at my feet (thought I was stuck in rocks). Gave two sharp rod snaps and it took off with no turning back. Tried to set the hook couple more times and it ran faster, even with a tight drag. It rounded the bolder point I was on and spit the jig before I could catch up with it. left me with a bentout hook and seaweed on my leader for extra insult.
  17. Ok i have three big lots i want to get rid of, i haven't done much salt water fishing the past two years. Slimming down what i have. I am located in RI if you want to pick up. I accept paypal or cash. Plug lot $250 picked up, $265 shipped. Jig lot with diamond jigs and bucktails $140 shipped. $130 picked up. Soft plastic lot $140 shipped. $130 picked up. Willing to do $400 picked up on everything.
  18. The last three years I've been using Blue Frog "Original" Bucktails w/swing hook more & more from Jetties. These are the best Bucktails on the planet IMO...they present well with pork/fat cow/otter/paddle tail tips, are really well made, strong reliable hooks, hold up well clanging the rocks...those of you who fish them know of what I speak. Since June, the B&T shops that I frequent in NJ & LI have been saying they are struggling to get inventory, most recently this week up on LI...Some have sold out completely, others only have 1/2 oz. & 3 oz. sizes left on the rack. Anyone know what's going on? WHERE TO GET THE 1.0/1.5/2.0 sizes? Thanks!
  19. Just received my first Tinman bucktails. Omg you guys were spot on. These are definitely the best bucktails I think I’ve ever got. This year I wanted to really stick to fishing bucktails. Always felt like I had to retrieve them too fast to keep them off the bottom and never seemed to catch. But these bucktails with the amount of hair they have. Holy crap. Is this why you guys slay them with bucktails? Quality! Heading out tonight to a damn where the stripers are on herring. Hope to stick something. Let’s here your opinion on these bucktails.

  23. Anyone know where I can buy bulk deer tails for tying bucktails?
  24. 6 big bucktails 4 spoons/tins that I think are Sling Jigs, but can’t swear to it 1 Viking cod jig The two black bucktails jigs are bug-eye style, 7.5” long and 5.5 oz. each Chartreuse is 6” long and 11 oz. Red/black is 7.5” and 3.5 oz., with what I'll call a tri-lobe head Chrome head is 7” and 6.5 oz. Purple parachute is 11” and 5.3 oz. The black, chartreuse and red/black ones have fixed hooks. The purple parachute jig hook is on a bead chain. The chrome head has a swinging hook. Sling Jigs are ~5” long and ~6 3/4 oz. Green Mackerel has seen some water and rocks. Two have tackle-box storage wear and the Goggle Eye pattern has only three very small (< 1/16”) chips on the very top. The body of the Viking jig is 8" long. It weighs 9.9 oz on my scale. After cleaning it up a bit, I found that under the chrome plating is copper, because chrome does not bond to lead, I just learned. Thus one needs three metals to get chrome onto lead: Lead>copper>chrome. $95.00 plus shipping for all. Any payment type is ok. These will all fit into a USPS Priority Flat Rate Small Box, which means that shipping is $7 for two- to three-day delivery time (according to USPS guidelines), includes tracking and $50 insurance. More insurance is available upon request at extra cost. If you’re in MA or RI, I’ll be happy to meet you somewhere from PVD to the ditch, and I’m occasionally in Boston.
