Local Luremaker: Stanley Gola – S and S Bucktails

S&S Bucktails currently offers 25 different lures including the Rattletail. When fluke season closes throughout the Northeast in September, Stanley Jr. said the bulk of his business switches over to striper-specific jigs such as the Slimfish sand-eel imitating jig and the Rockhopper Bucktail.

Featured Lure: Johnson Silver Minnow
