Large Fluted Blade Bucktail Spinners

These spinners have an extremely large following with the die hard musky fishermen. And for good reason, they catch a lot of big musky and pike. Note they can be made using our spinner body combination or you can make them simply using only solid brass beads as an effective and heavy body.

All beads should be solid brass to maximize weight. The "6 x 11/32" means use 6 size 11/32" solid brass beads. As always, feel free to experiment with different combinations of bodies and beads. You will be amazed what you can do with a few solid brass beads.

When making the large Fluted bucktail spinners you should use a closed eye wire shaft of at least 0.040". Attach the bucktail with a split ring (use size 4 to 7) so you may easily change bucktails with damaged hooks or with worn, torn or damaged bucktail.
