I know some of you talk about jigs for muskie, but from what I have seen it's mostly plastic and creatures.

I use bucktail and marabou jigs for bass and they are very effective. You can impart a very realistic action on them using light upward flicks of the wrist, reeling etc.

Do any of you know of any pre-tied musky size bucktail or marabou jigs? Bigger doesn't always mean just heavier.

Tied many of my custom Swimmer Heads with bucktail. Plenty of Pulsations with feathers!

Check out Cougar Baits out of Colorado....... they might have what you are looking for.

I Picked up a dragon layered hair jig and a dirty dancer over the winter.... looking forward to throwing them this season...

They also have a new underspin version that I may also need to pick up now too

I tie flies so I would make them. If you can’t find any can send me a pm. See what I can do to help out.

I second checking out Cougar Baits. I picked some up at the Wasau Musky Show. They are high quality and oversized compared to many of the jigs out there. They are 1 oz with some terrific colors.

I like adding a heavy weight to an original Beaver...fishes like a big bucktail jig.
I'm a little surprised one of the bucktail spinner manufacturers hasn't come out with a big simple bucktail jig.

 There’s several spinners out there with 5+ ounce weight…Several guys on LSC are using these 5,6, and 8 ounce, jig- heads. 10/0 hook!  You can extend these collars to tie Multiple layers of dressings.
