Andrus is not skimpy with the hair. Their jigs are professionally tied with generous amounts (stuffed) with premium bucktail hair. Andrus jigs are made with high quality, strong, sharp hooks. Andrus Jigs are available in a variety of sizes and colors.

Favorite Bucktail
Besides homemade, Andrus bucktails are tied good with nice amount of hair and seem to hold up well to surf fishing around the rocks. Finish is not perfect in some cases but get the job done.

Excellent lure
I use this lure fishing a local inlet/open beach. It has a strong hook and is well made. I like the 1.25oz size which I find perfect for many stages of the tide. I usually tip it with an Otter Tail or Fat Cow strip.

Excellent Bucktail
This is an excellent bucktail with a strong hook. It is one of my go to backtails. I typically use this with an otter tail, Fat Cow tail or curly tail. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is that the weight can vary sometimes.
ProsStrong hook
Consinconsistent weight

Best bucktail
Best bucktail for stripers in Montauk; just add a trailer or twisty tail and you are ready to go. Fluffy tail keeps you above the rocks and a sharp jig makes them hit. Extra strong hook is necessary if you get a large one swimming against the current. Don't be fooled by other jigs.

Jetty caster
These are another bucktail I use quite often. Sometimes I feel the fish are picky and will hit this bucktail over other. I always trainer them with a pork rind or now a fat cow trailer.

Reliable Andrus jig
The jetty caster is a very dense jig, making it ideal among rocks and where you can get hung up. It's also good around shallow water where there is wide baitfish. Don't forget the pork rind though!
ProsStrong hook Lots of hair Swims above hang ups
ConsThe eye of the hook is wide, difficult to get a snap on

Good basic bucktails
I have these in both white and chartreuse. These are good basic buck tails and, as other reviewers have point out, they have bit more hair than other bucktails so they can be retrieved more slowly in calm water. I thought the hooks could be a bit sharper out of the box but a few seconds of touch up with my hook file solved that issue.
ProsGood basic bucktails Afro a good price.

Plugs to buy when you are getting started
Andrus bucktails will generally be tied a bit bulkier so they will sink slower. As the trailer I'd stick with Uncle Josh 50-S rinds in red/white for now, but Uncle Josh 240-S in red/white.

Used this and the 1 once size with a pork rind trailer to fool stripers at the mouth of the Kennebunk River this past week! Great fun and great fish. The slow sinking Jetty Casters were great at avoiding the rocky bottom while attracting bass in the outgoing tide!

Great bottom Salmon Hook
Ive used this Andrus Bucktail type of jig as an unbaited hook for the bottom of my padanoster rig so when im fishing for Salmon off the beach so I don't get my bait picked of by the "pikers" on the bottom, As it turned out over the course of the season I got Salmon on the top baited hook and just as many on the jig. It has an abundance of fibers that don't just get plucked off with the first fish you catch, this jig is great value for money and works well for Victorian Surf fishing.

Bucktails catch
A strip of uncle josh pork on the back or a curly tail grub is all one needs to make these bucktails deadly. The bucktail hair stays on well even after being hit by bluefish. A must have.

Quintessential bucktail
Andrus is by far the best maker of buck tails in my opinion, heavy on the hair so it has a great profile in the white stuff and enough to slow down the fall rate. They produce and they produce well. The jetty caster and the infamous rip splitter all serve well in any condition. A must in your bag.

great for the beach-breaks
Cast this jig into the troughs along the whitewater beach breaks and let it glide along the bottom. Cant think of a better lure for this application. These jigs are durable and perform well. Casting into onshores is never a problem. My white one has picked up a red-ish tint to it from sitting next to another lure in the tackle box; hasn't seemed to affect performance at all.

Simple and effective
Simple and very effective. I hooked but lost my biggest Bass using this bucktail. The 2oz allowed me to get down in the strike zone. I through the bag that evening and this way the other lure that produced any results that night.

Very effective when combined with Uncle Josh baits
When fishing for stripers you can;t go wrong with these. Throw on a Uncle Josh meat eel and even a novice striper fisherman has a shot at a prized catch. You can mix and match colors for effect.
ProsInexpensive compared to plugs and cast very well. If you want to bring the kids this is a good lure for them to use.
