The Andrus Lures Ball Jigs Bucktail is great for fluke fishing and feature quality hair that holds up. Andrus Lures, the makers of premium jigs. Great for targeting fluke, striped bass and weakfish in the bay, surf, inlet and inshore waters. Andrus Jigs are a favorite among surfcasting and inshore anglers. 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.
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.
ProsSharp hooks Sturdy construction

Great bucktail with a lot of different weights and color choices..Also good action
Fancy don't mean it catches more.......

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.....
good price on a standard

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.

I got the 1/2 oz black ones for night fishing. Strong and reliable.

Can't beat these for the price. Nearly any weight and color option you could ask for. Also very sturdy.

Good bucktail for fluke offshore
Love to work back bay fluke with these and other bucktails

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

These bucks are great when using them with a casting egg. They are the perfect size to match the hatch with smaller bait.
Love these for fluking in the northeast.

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 weight and action in the water. i paired it with a gulp curly tail and it looks awesome
Good jig but uneven paint

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

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.

Great jig caught plenty of fish on it so far happy with the hardware and materials on the bucktail banged it a few times and it still kept its color
