Yes they will.... Was out the other day and they'd let go after a hook set and 20 cranks and hit it again while I was reeling it in to check the bait.

However, that's not the case every day....Sometimes all you are going to feel is a extra weight and no shake at all and they just lay on it and won't chase it if you pull it away. This is when dead sticking works, even with bucktails.

Different every day...
