Bonefish Buggs

Bonefish Buggs 2

It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of Buggs Lures. I started using their product two years ago shortly after I purchased my first kayak and discovered that redfish love shallow water. It may have taken me a month or two, but I quickly learned that when a lure lands softly, with little splash or noise, a redfish is less likely to blow out. While soft plastics on a 1/16th ounce jighead worked well, they still made more noise than I cared for.

My first glimpse at a Buggs came from a post someone started on They discussed using them as a sight casting lure for reds in the marsh and provided a few pictures of the lure and the fish it had caught. After visiting the Buggs website, I decided to order a few and give them a try. To make a long story short, from that day on I have rarely made a trip without a Bugg tied to at least one of my rods. I have used the double bunny jigs, curl-tail jigs, and beastie buggs with great results from each.

I recently received a shipment of Bonefish Jigs and I’m eager to try them out.  These lures come in four different styles, each available in either 1/16th or 3/16th ounce size, making them the smallest Buggs so far.  While designed for bonefish, these lures should work well on a really low tide when redfish are at their spookiest.  Sheepshead and Black Drum should also have no problem picking these lures up.  Within a month, I should have a full report on how these lures faired against Galveston area redfish.
