|I'm new to using bucktails in general.
I notice the color starts to wear off from sand after few usage, and the hair starts to turn brown. Is it still good to attrat fish?
How long do you use one bucktail and any maintainance required? Thanks!
That brown is rust from the jig head rusting. (Saltwater must be rinsed off lures with freshwater after every use)
Guessing the hook is slightly brown too? Not that it can't catch fish anymore, it's effectiveness may be slightly diminished.
Either buy more or buy a higher quality buck tail like B52.
Some try to : re-color; nail polish; sharpen hooks; replace worm tail (if used)
