Here is my best advice when fishing with soft plastics and bucktail/strip combos. If you are not incorporating extra cadence into your retrieve, this is your biggest mistake. Before selecting size and profile and make sure you are doing this!

It will make a 10 to 1 difference at times. Paddletails, jerktails, all of the above hold true.
