The Otter Lure and Tackle Short Tail bait is made in 8 different colors. Made for both saltwater and freshwater fishing applications. This bait will last longer than pork or plastic baits. This bait comes in a reclosable jar. This bait is pre-scented. The scent is made from premium squid, fish oils, combined with a worm oil lubricant. It's made from a soft flexible material that is able to successfully hold scents. This bait won't dry up if they are left out in the sun or air. The short tail bait is perfect for use mostly on bucktails, fluke, and seabass rigs.

  • When scent needs to be recharged simply return to the jar with worm oil lubricant.
  • Peel apart to separate these baits as they are attached to each other in pairs.

Better than fluke belly
Love it, when I can't get my hands on some fluke strips, I turn to otter tails just as good or better

Nice Jig Strips
Good replacement to pork rind. Action is as good as pork and better that Fat Cow strips, probably because strips seem to be thinner. Maybe not as durable as prom and Fat Cow, but action is as if not more important to me.

Very good trailer
Good substitute for pork rind. Durability is not as good but not bad. Action is very good especially with curly tail. I find action is better than Fat Cow strips because they are a bit thinner.

Great trailer
I ordered these based on my family member in Florida. The owner of your company went into his tackle shop and let him try samples. He caught four bass in eight minutes using them as trailers oh a spinner bait. I ordered them and because of the difficulties I had on checkout the wrong color was ordered. I wanted white but ordered chat. I will be using them at the end of April in a bass tournament. If you have any white samples I would love to try them.

Hot Tail Action!
This is by far the strongest curl tail trailer I have found on the market today! The resilience of the tough material makes it strong to even sharp toothed predator fish. I use them and hardly ever have to change them out even on flounder which these work best for on a buck tail jig head. Great product! Will buy more IF needed.
ProsGood price for tough curl tails. Small container to keep them well soaked and ready to fish.
ConsNone right now. Will let you know if I find any!

Tough with lots of action
Despite how durable this is, it still has plenty of action and has stood up to many bluefish and fluke. I haven't put it back into the jar it came in and it has yet to dry out or lose it's durability. I'm still using the 1st one out of the jar.
ProsTough, great action

Otter tails
I do a lot of saltwater fishing ŸŽ and saw a utube with John Skinner using these tails. I have the same problem with sand perch and sea bass bitting off the 4" Berkly gulp tails. I cut the Otter tail down and replace the gulp tail with the Otter tail. Works great. I put the jig and Otter tail in my gulp container to recharge it and keep on fishing Ÿ˜Ž For ten bucks it's worth a try. Great service and quick delivery Ÿ“
ProsStayed on hook and even blue fish ŸŸ didn't tear it upŸ‘

Way better than plastic
I use Otter strips to tip my bucktails when casting for stripers in the surf. I switched over to these about a year ago. The action is truly amazing, and I no longer use plastic trailers. At first I was worried about durability, but they hold up well.

What an AMAZING product! I've fished these from the Gulf of Mexico to the gulf of Maine. Bait is a thing of the past, I've caught red snapper in Florida and two weeks later cod fish off of Maine with these tails, they last forever. Even with the critters with a lot of teeth. My favorite is the pink! Will be buying many more jars.
ProsHolds scent, reusable and TUFF

Great Uncle Josh Replacement
Since Uncle Josh pork strips are no longer produced, I needed to find a replacement. A friend recommended the Otter strips and they're excellent. I cut them in half for a slim profile, or use them whole for more action. Work great for fluke, bass, or blues.
ProsDurable Nice action
ConsA little wide and usually need to be cut in half lengthwise Bluefish bite them in half

Outstanding durability
Have been fishing it 4-5 times a week for the past month and am still using my first tail out of the package. Outlasts pork baits by a mile and, as advertised, does not dry out in the sun.

An Alternative
This is a great alternative to live worms on the tube and worm. It saves that trip to the bait shop the night before or morning of when tube/worm may or may not be in the arsenal for the day.
ProsTough, able to reuse one tail over and over. can keep a jar in the boat or in the bag and use if needed/when needed.

In the past decade, Jersey's wrecks and reefs have begun to colonize with summer visitors in the form of gray triggerfish. Previously known as a relative bycatch on the structure piles, triggers are now carpeting inshore wrecks and reefs, sometimes by the hundreds.... Read More
