Cat’s Famous Musky Bucktails!


Bucktail Fishing Lures & Baits for Muskies & Pike!

In 1992, Roger Williamson, nicknamed “Catfish”, created “Cat’s Tails” Lures and began creating high quality muskie and northern pike lures and baits. Since then, the original muskie and pike lures including Cat’s Tails musky bucktails and musky surface baits have been a proven fish catcher while fishing for musky and pike. The largest reported muskie and northern pike caught on Cat’s Tails Lures have been a 53” Muskie, and a 44” Northern Pike.


Cat’s Tails Lures muskie lures and northern pike tackle were the very first musky tackle to incorporate a single trailer hook, pheasant feathers, and a plastic teaser tail in their lure design. This idea started the “plastic revolution” in musky and pike lures.
