The buzzbait is one of the easiest topwater lures you can fish. It can be fished over cover, through grass, or in open water. No matter where its fished, it produces some of the biggest, most violent bites of the Summer! Many anglers fail to realize how versatile the buzzbait really is. With simple modifications these baits can be fished in virtually any cover.
The number one buzzer on the market is a single-bladed buzzbait with a clacker. That configuration covers water quickly and draws fish from the depths with its ruckus. However, if you're on a lake where a lot of other anglers are throwing a buzzbait its often wise to try a different profile. We often turn to a quad blade, which is extremely subtle, or a double buzz which can be retrieved at an extremely slow pace.
If you find yourself around overhead cover like docks, trees, or brush, the skirtless buzz is a must have! We typically tip the skirtless buzzbait with a paddle tail swimbait to create an action the fish haven't seen before. With a swimbait for a trailer this buzz can easily be skipped deep into cover and on the retrieve the subtle blade leads a perfectly natural swimbait profile back out of the shadows. If you haven't tried a skirtless buzzbait, now is the time.
Below is a breakdown of the buzzbaits and trailers we use for different circumstances. Our favorite buzzbait colors are Red/Black, Black, and White, in that order.
