Welcome to the home of the "World Famous" Hirsch's Ghosttail Fishing Lures!
Hirsch's Ghosttails is a family run business for over29 years. The business started as an alternative to the limited selection of unique and quality buck tails on the market.
When Ghosttails began the color explosion was happening on other lures for other species but not in musky. That is where we used our sense of colors and various combinations to catch the attention of the old and the new generation musky fisherman. We knew that colors were an important part of successful musky fishing and had to sell the fisherman before we could sell the fish.
One of our goals with color combinations was to always keep them on a natural basis. This means to keep the brightest of colors looking as "fishy" as possible. But even through colors attract the fisherman and the fish we knew that if the quality were not there the business would not last (the word spreads very quickly in the musky industry). This is why Ghosttails have always been hand tied and hand assembled. Each and every lure has gone through one of our hands.
We have not changed the way we produce our product because we know it works. Just as the saying goes, "You do not fix something that isn't broken".
We know that it is impossible to please everyone but we do our best. We want people to know that our product is not just a bucktail it's a Ghosttail.
