This little bait has been hand made from the bottom up to have the strength to withstand the crushing blows from Muskie and pike along with the finesse to entice monster bass..

Equipped with a heavy set split ring and a Gamakatsu 1/0 2X strong, extremely sharp hook, you’ll be ready for anything! It will attract even the most finicky of fish with the silicone glitter skirt that is more lifelike than flashabou. We would really like to see this bait in a 9 or 10” model.

This is a great size for finicky early season Northern Pike or Muskie but we also had some BIG smallmouth Bass show interest during testing. This could be used to target a variety of species.

We would definitely recommend this product as an entry level Pike or Muskie Angler. While the bait is small in comparison to other bucktail manufacturers it does still entice those predatory fish to strike. Tie one on and try yourself
