    bucktails

    Recommendations for a small bucktail to use for spring fishing along with cold front conditions and just whenever they just want a smaller bait. Blade size and which kind etc. Am set with larger bucktails at this point. Look forward to your comments.

    Depends on what you consider small. The last decade or so, "small" has been anything less than tens.

    Mepps Musky Killers are always a great bait to have, but a couple new ones offered by Mepps this year are the Musky Flashabou Baitfish Series (perch model pictured) and the Comet Mino Perch. I like the size 5 blade model in the latter.

    Larry and Steve going old school with the Mepps #5 - also add the old Mepps Musky Killer to that small bucktail list and don't forget the Rizzo Wiz by Tony - that used to be an old spring favorite of mine back in the 80s

    My vote is for the Mancave Tug. Everything about it is first rate: Blade spin, hook ups, casting distance, awesome colors, durability, etc..., plus you'll like the price!

    Blue Fox has a line of 7 inch spinners called Vibrax Super Bou with marabou and hackles replacing the bucktail in a nice variety of colors. Can't yet say how effective they are but I'll be throwing one around on Monday.

    I raised several in warm water on the brown and orange 8 inch, looks great in the water and throws well for a 'bou bait. Then, the heat came and I've quit fishing locally. m

    If I may ask what is the 8 inch you are referring too.
