To make "The Best" Bucktail we start with elite design ideas and build them with the best components available. Many parts have to be custom machined to meet Spanky quality requirements.

  • ALL PARTS ARE MADE & ALL BAITS ARE ASSEMBLED IN THE USA
  • Through wire is .072" 304 (custom tempered) stainless steel-nothing comes close!
  • Nylon washers ensure perfect blade rotation and assist with trolling
  • Each bait is proven for casting & trolling, you only need 1 Spanky to do both
  • Our skirts are tied over a lock style brass channel to safeguard against sharp teeth
  • Each thread lock is saturated with epoxy to ensure the bond will stay put forever

Blades are simply the heartbeat of this style lure. By using the thicker blades we are able to guarantee perfect harmonics. Anglers will not be interrupted by bent, warped or even broken blades that you would experience using thinner blades.

  • Blades are all .040" thick
  • Blades start every time without having to jerk or snap the rod to kick start them
  • Over 40 different blade colors & patterns


Our Creative Team will take innovation to the highest possible level with different styles of thinking and approach. We spend considerable time developing new baits and combinations to keep you on the leading edge.

  • Our new Brooklyn line uses Spanky developed tinsel that holds its true color in the water
  • New skirts colors developed and tested every year
