Great with Soft Plastics
February 6, 2022
I rig these with soft plastics and catch everything from weakfish, striped bass and bluefish. The hairs stay on for pretty long too.

Quality made right here in the USA

Like most fishermen I fill my bag box truck house and garage with every enticing piece of tackle I can find!… But sometimes all it takes is this very well-made simple bucktail to catch!!!
ProsWell-made right here in New Jersey
ConsSometimes may be hard to fine certain sizes? Because they catch!

Bad Paint Job
March 22, 2021
This 3-star review only applies to the black jigs. I bought many white jigs and they are great. I bought several black jigs at different weights and ALL are poorly painted (see picture; all look like that). These look nothing like the picture on the website. The picture on the website is solid black. Now I have to repaint these myself.
ProsWhite jigs are painted well.
ConsBlack paint doesn?t cover the entire jig.

These are perfect to use with both shrimp and artificial lures. Nice and bright for the murky water I fish.

Fancy don't mean it catches more.......
May 10, 2020
You look at these things and say..... how do you fool a 20 year old fish with that! But, you do...... Andrus jigs have more bucktail hair than pretty much any major commercial jig out there. More hair means more drag and more action. Sometimes you want less drag, but often you want more in the water...... Solidly made jig. Hairs stays on. No hackisaki hook....... But a quality one that holds a point after a few rock bashes too...... Never bent a hook yet.........
ProsA little less expensive than fancier ones, but durable, consistent from bucktail to bucktail.....
By Van
good price on a standard
January 13, 2020
I use the 1/8 oz and the 1/4 oz for jigging and casting for schooling rockfish, perch and spots off my dock.
ConsThe eye for the fishing line is pretty small and might need to widened.

Good bucktail for fluke offshore
By Jessie
Love to work back bay fluke with these and other bucktails
March 21, 2019
Especially while crabbing in the reeds. Throw your traps out, then grab one of these bad boys tipped with a gulp grub or a squid strip and you would be surprised how many larger fluke travel up those canals and away from the bay.

Great behind a casting egg
December 27, 2018
These bucks are great when using them with a casting egg. They are the perfect size to match the hatch with smaller bait.
ProsStrong hook
By Jessie
Love these for fluking in the northeast.
November 14, 2018
Really effective for fluke, striped bass, black sea bass, bluefish, and even weakfish. Always want to include a few of these in the tackle arsenal for when fish are being finicky.
Proswork well to catch multiple species. durable. cheap.

Good jig but uneven paint
May 24, 2018
Paint isn't the best as there are some spots that look as if they were dripping, but overall a good jig.

Must have
January 12, 2018
Caught several hundred stripers this past fall on this bucktail in various sizes,casts well,the hook is small sharp and strong,good hair retentiontoo.When stripers want bucktails they work great,but on days the fish are picky they outfish every other bucktail design.I can see getting several seasons with them.

Ball jigs

These seem to cast just a little better than your standard bucktail. But I still like the smiling bill and rip splitter better.

Rare 5/8 oz. ball jig
April 4, 2016
I find that the 5/8 oz. green or chartreuse round head bucktail is the perfect weapon for back bay fluke in South Jersey. It's been my weapon of choice for three decades, and nobody makes a better one than Andrus.
