Bemidji, Minn. – NEW FOR 2020, Northland Fishing Tackle expands its Deep-Vee Jig lineup with a version dressed in bucktail.  Just as the original, it sports a keeled “DEEP-VEE” design that’s thicker on top, and thin on the bottom to track straight, and fall fast. 

The Deep-Vee Bucktail Jig looks in profile to be an average Aspirin-shaped head, but a head-on view reveals the V-shaped design that promises to be a fish-favorite.  Complete with 3D eyes that exude a “match-the-hatch” realism, the V-shaped jig platform now features a dressed bucktail back-end. 

Perhaps no other jig design has been as popular over time as the standard bucktail jig.  For good reason, even the U.S. Navy realized its potential when packing emergency kits for WWII sailors and pilots with bucktail jigs.  Today, Navy SEAL teams are still equipped with bucktail jigs for use in survival situations, cementing its fish-catching importance forever in the annals of history and offering an endorsement as no other lure-class has enjoyed since the bare hook.

The Deep-Vee Bucktail Jig features the same benefits that bucktail has always had, in a great profile that mimics a variety of prey, while fishing in a life-like manner and offering little drag like other materials.  Add that list of benefits to the existing accolades of the Deep-Vee Jig base, and you’ve got a lure with past proven performance, in present-day variation that improves upon old standards.

The Deep-Vee Bucktail Jig can be fished in a number of ways and in a variety of situations.  Heavier versions excel in deeper water for vertically targeting walleyes and other predators, while lighter options can be cast shallow and hopped, dragged, or “ripped” back to the boat.  The Deep-Vee Bucktail Jig is an excellent bait in river and stream scenarios, holding true in current due to the jig design, and staying near the bottom with no “washout” due to the low-drag bucktail.

With an MSRP of $3.99 – $4.59, the Deep-Vee Bucktail Jig comes with one jig per card, in 12 proven colors.  Offered in 4 sizes – 1/16 oz. (#2 hook), 1/8 oz. (#1/0 hook), 1/4 oz. (#2/0 hook), 3/8 oz. (#3/0 hook) there’s a perfect Deep-Vee Bucktail Jig for any species and situation.
