Just placed another order of tidal tails 2-3 oz fluke rat'z & stinger'z

i actually prefer these over the spro bucktails since feel a better connection to the bottom and the movement from jigging up and down

anybody else have success with these bad boys Confused

I always liked them both. The slim profile of the stinger allows it to come up off the bottom effortlessly on your upward jigging motion and the front-balanced eye on the ratz does the same. If you notice, Spro's are center balanced with the eye right at the center of the jig's body so on the upward motion the jig remains horizontal and you're feeling the resistance of the water column, it doesn't nose-up through the water column as the others do. Much better feel as you say. Good observation, kidSmile.

thanks guys

the 1st time i saw them was when i picked a few up from the tackle shop in city island last year

picked up a few more this season, lost them all and then realized you can order them direct

the shipping cost ($10) for 8 pieces balances out since they charge a bit more at the shops...

now just hope to get them in time for sunday Shades

Nice. I've got to try those.

I have a few custom made bucks that were given to me. They have a similar shape to those and I've had success with them.

teaser on a dropper 10 inches above the ball. and a 18" leader off the ball to a 6/0 or 7/0 octopus hook. big bait. big hook. big fish. and not as many dropped fish as on a spro or on those funny lookin things.

In some places that will work well. I would use that in the ocean. I've been using it on the north shore with little success. The bucktails work much better there. The bucks also did better in Captree last time there.




Hey, it can't be Christmas everyday!!!!

One way to tell would be for us to fish side by side.
