I'm looking to get some materials to make some bucktails, but I wanted to know what other lures people like using. Up until now, I've always used jerkbaits, crankbaits, and swimbaits, but now I'm considering bucktails because of how popular they are. What lures do you guys mostly use? (Note that my lake is relatively stained, I can see about 2 feet into the water, maybe 3-4 in some spots.

Really depends but on the average ... overall over the course of a year it would be double blades for me. Having said that size of bucktails,, blades and materials change significantly depending on spring, summer or fall, time of day/night and what the weather is doing.

Try lots of variations. If I was fishing in that dirty water, with bucktails, I'd rock a black skirt with copper blades. Either a single 9 Colorado, or some sort of staggered double blade, 7/9, 9/10, etc... At least that's where I'd start, I really prefer throwing blades whenever I can get away with it.
