The Backwater Custom Baits Poison Tail Jigs are a hand-tied jig designed for bottom fish we see here in the Northeast like Fluke & Seabass.  Each jig starts off with a 2x Strong Mustad 6/0 Black Nickel Sickle hook, designed for strength, and to mitigate thrown hooks due to its bend.  A premium 60 strand custom skirt material is hand-tied using stainless steel wire to withstand the most powerful of headshakes big doormats give and are well known for.  Top-quality powder coatings and epoxies finish the jig off, as well as adhesive eyes to provide even more realism to the offering.

The Poison Tail Jig is designed to be fished with baits like the Berkley Gulp! Saltwater Grubs, Berkley Gulp! Saltwater Swimming Mullets, and Berkley Gulp! Nemesis 6.5".  The jigs provide for a bit more body profile, motion, and a gripping point when releasing fish amongst many other elements that make this jig have the countless 10+ doormats under its belt.  The forward line tie works very well with dropper/chicken rigs, whether it be above a bucktail or sinker, as the bait sits flatter and more parallel to the seafloor where fluke call home.

Backwater Custom Baits are known as the original custom silicone skirted fluke jig and football styled tog jigs.  Many Northeast charter captains rely on both to get their clients on fish and they have proven themselves to tame the biggest fluke and tog respectively.

Poison tails

I would love to give my opinion however I have yet to receive my purchase. Placed the order on 12/7 and on 12/24 it’s still in shipment. Can’t wait to check out the purchase so I can order more if I like them. Thanks, Bob S

Bob, Lot's of shipping nightmares for customers and retailers alike. I looked at tracking and your package got to Jersey City and went back to Springfield MA. We have heard that Providence and Springfield were among the hardest hit PO's. I'll keep an eye on this as well. Thanks for your patience, Peter
