ths lure is hard to beat for deep water pike here in alaska. never go on the water without atleast one in firetiger and bre ready for savage strikes from deepwater pike.

I first tied one ot these bucktails at the end of this summer and I was pretty amazed. Caught multiple pike in rivers and lakes, also was pleasantly surprised to get a few hungry largemouth on it. Have yet to pull in a musky on one of these guys, but definitely a productive lure, probably due to the vibration and noise emitted from it's body. This lure would be either my go to, or if nothing else close second as far as bucktails go. Also any color that has chart. in it has worked the best in both clear and murky water for me. One slight complaint is that the paint starts to chip off fairly soon after starting to use them, but with a little lure paint it isn't much of a problem.

This lure is great, I have had so much luck with it. I first used the regular Blue Fox vibrax spinners and loved them. I decided to try the Musky Buck out. I have caught so many fish on this lure it's ridiculous. You would be surprised at the fish that will hit this thing. I have caught alot of nice largemouth bass on this, two or three over 20". This is one of my favorite ice-out lures, as it will catch bass and toothy critters. I mainly use the firetiger single blade but have quite a few colors in single and tandem blades. Highly recommended lure for anyone who fishes for the toothy guys.

I love these bucktails
I own every color that these have ever come in, since I discovered these gems years ago. I love the entire line of these bucktails, and they produce fish.
For what these things cost, they are very well made. I have an old frog pattern (that I wish they still made) that's probably 5 years old, and it still has its full skirt intact, including the little trailing feathers. The bell clacker on the head is pretty loud, and it's a nice addition to the thump of the blade.
These bucktails are pretty light, so you will need lighter gear to throw these. I use a 7'-3" Medium Heavy musky rod with 65# test braided line and a 12", 7-strand leader.
These bucktails have caught many fish over the years, including musky, pike, stripers and even some huge bucket mouths. Highly recommended!
