just recently started about a year ago making our own bucktails. Very educational!! You can make any color, shape, size from deer hair to feathers and blades galore! Yes there is the right time to use blades etc.. dont get me wrong I do fish with store bought baits such as a bulldawg, but the gratification of catching a monster on something you made is pretty cool. this fish was on a blade yes there was a happy dance on that one!!

That is a really neat bait made out of Turkey feathers.. I wish I would of seen it before we dressed our birds....  Good Job Girl and the blade that tops it off..Making your own baits can and does become addictive.

Yup, did pretty good in Kentucky over Easter.  My honey caught 2 I lost one and caught one saw lots of fish. My hot bait was a homemade inline rizzo tail, husbands was a black suick, by day 3 his arms were cashed out from twitching!!

Here is a bucktail I made for my husband. He shot a 25 pound turkey 2 yrs ago & a 23 pounder last year. So, I plucked all the fluffy marabou from those turkeys and I'm calling this one "wild turkey" also had the blade engraved for him hope you like it!!!

Well so much for ice fishing!! Now it's musky time, the white multi colored one I'm calling killer clown from outer space (after super nova color). LOL  This "hobby" is getting just as addictive as musky fishing!!!!!

 To all that were at the Muskies Inc.. meeting and  the seminar, was nice to see everyone there that night.  Have been sitting in a tree stand last couple of weeks have'nt had to much time on my hands lately to post a BIG THANK YOU! Glad everyone enjoyed what I had to say about making your own bucktails. And of course the demo was of a hot pink Bou Buck!!!  Hope the gentleman that won it in my door prize catches a big one!!
