Plastic Trailers on Big Double Bucktails

8 posts in this topic

Was watching "Keys Outdoors" today, noticed they were tossing CowGirls with some type of plastic trailer. Couldn't see what it was, but they seemed to just put it on one of the barbs on the back hook.

Anyone know what they were using? Do others put plastic plastic trailers on your Double 10/8 bucktails? If you do, what are some options that you use and how do you attach them?

Chaos Tackle makes a lure called a Cowdussa which is a Double Cowgirl with a Medussa (basically a triple-tailed Bulldawg) that sounds similar to what your describing. I think you can pick one up for around $30 at Thorne Bros. I'm sure they'll be at the Muskie Expo.

We carry 4-8" twister tail bodies to add to bucktails or spinnerbaits. Just put them on a treble.

Kallen tails.

Get em at any sports store or fleet farm.

Cut the body down to an inch or so and just slide a hook (on the front treble) through from side to side and yur done. The reason you hook the tail on the front hook is so if you get a short strike they still have a chance to get the rear hook in the mouth.

If you put the tails on the front hook do they get caught up in the skirt?

That is kinda funny you mention using the front treble. On the Keys Outdoor episode I refered to - he missed about 12 solid strikes. I think he was using the back hook for holding his trailer, that might explain all the misses.

What size Kallen (Kalin) grub/tail do you use??

dreams, I have never had one do it.

Laker, I use the 6 inch

I try to make the tail just long enough, so that the back of the tail is even with the rear treble. Alot of time the fish will come up and nip at the tail and if its on the rear hook all they get is tail. With it being on the front hook and even with the rear hook, Better chance of getting a hook in the fish with the rear hook at the end of the tail. Now with that being said, the tail may get hooked up in the rear hook a bit (not often) but every lure fouls once in a wile.

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
