Favorite Untraditional Bucktail Trailers

Rate this topic

18 posts in this topic

The traditional bucktail trailers seem to be curly tail grubs, and pork rinds. What are some of your favorite untraditional bucktail trailers, and when do you choose to use them over the traditional trailers? Thanks for playing along!

A piece of green surgical tubing - my 6 yo son wanted me to put it on after I changed the hooks on a Kastmater, so I obliged him figuring it'd be a waste of time. That night, that bucktail did some serious damage.

I'll use these in the warmer months when I want a large bait down deep for slow hopping the jig in current.

Tie 4 or 5 saddle hackle feathers to the hook shaft. Use 4" or 5" feathers. Very nice squid imitator, the feathers in water provide lots of action. Only drawback is the feather shafts tend to be a little fragile when fish are chomping on them. Awesome trailer.

BINGO Brother.

 

 

How pretty is a White Smilin' Bill with red lips and a yellow chicken feather butt. But not durable like the epoxy coated threads over bucktail.
