The New BigTooth Sound Science bucktails have made a splash into the Muskie world. I got the chance to test a couple of them this summer. I will admit I was a little skeptical at first look. I have had the chance to throw basically every bucktail variation that has been around in the last 10 years or so. The first thing I noticed on the first cast I made with one of these bucktails was the change in vibration the lure makes while reeling in. Because of the 2 different style and size of the blades, you can honestly “feel” the difference in your rod tip. I was amazed to say the least.
But do they work? The 2nd thing I noticed was the way the muskies chase down and eat this lure. I haven’t seen a Muskie look and react to a bucktial in this fashion in many years. Because of the entirely different sound/vibration from the bucktail, the muskies cannot help themselves. It only took 2 spots on my first trip out with these new bucktails to have one get eaten. I also had a muskie come up behind the bucktail and eat the entire bait all the way past the blades and only the leader was sticking out. I haven’t seen that happen in many years with a bucktail. The Sound Science line of bucktails is something that is just simply different. It’s a very well made bait, the blades engage immediately, and it drives the muskies crazy.
As of now, My personal favorite Sound Science bucktail is the “Sonic Boom.” It allows for you to both burn at high speeds, but also provide a strong “thump” when slow rolling it after dark. The 2 different size Colorado blades on the Sonic Boom really throws out an extreme frequency wave that Muskies just haven’t had the chance to get educated to.
I would be happy to discuss further about the other bucktails in the NEW Sound Science line up!
In the mean time, here is a cool YouTube Video of some “Sound Science” action:
