Months later, this is still the lure in my box that puts the most excitement in it. With the 77-80d temps, I've started to burn/go this big Shimano swimbait, and the fish of all sizes now have come unglued on it the last week +.
I've gotten Bluegills, and little packs of 6" Bass to follow this bait, it has a randomness and body roll on the burn retrieve that straddles that big bait line perfectly. I just love this bait so much, every single time out, it produces at least one moment of pure electricity. Today it caught 4 fish including a 5.8 big fish, but had another 2-3 strikes, and at least that many swervers.
Had a 5+ shake it in the air last time out with it, whether you lose them or catch them like today, watching a 5+ submarine and commit on a bait is the most addictive way I've found to catch these fish. I'd say I get to witness over half the fish I catch on the bait track and eat it. The Buzzbait is exhilarating but like a Jack in the Box, this bait is like watching the innards of the Jack in the Box work right before they spring.
