Megastrike Cavitron, 3/8oz. black skirt, black blade, no trailer.  I use the other colors too, but black/black seems to be the most versatile.

Strike King Tournament Buzzbait, 3/4 oz Sexy Shad no trailer. I only have one and I bought it online, I thought it would cast really far being 3/4 oz, but i have to reel 100mph to keep it above water. go lighter no trailer but use a trailer hook.

No trailer and no trailer hook on my buzzbaits.

I make my own 1/2 oz, black no trailer counter rotating 2 blade buzzbaits. I caught a 21" LM last season on it and have a 19" so far this season.

Black Cavitron with gold blade. I will put a trailer on it (usually a swing impact or a craw) to give it a bigger profile if I'm trying to target larger bass.

I know that people rave about the Cavitron and the Lunker Lure is an oldie but still comes with the old pale flat rubber and seems cheap, but that is the only buzzbait I throw and I almost never throw them since it seems you need to tune them just right etc...I will say that Strikes on Buzzbaits usually are bigger fish than other topwaters, so I would watch a video on how to get one to squeek, I have a buddy who is always messing with his buzzbaits so they squeak, and he is on to something because when he get's it right he does well some days and it seems it is the sound....

I only throw them for fun, so I just mess around with speeds and it seems really fast sometimes works best, not sure why but that is when I tie one on....

I throw a couple different buzzbaits. I like the cavitron 3/8 ounce black with black blade or white with silver or gold blade. I also throw a black on black or white on silver booyah clacker buzzbait. I put a black with chartreuse legs  horny toad or a plain white horny toad on all of them.

1/4 oz black Cavitron, red blade. I use a trailer unless the grass is too matted for it. I'd say about 25% of my catches only have the trailer hook in them.

I use white most of the time.  No trailer hook, or trailer.

Black with black blade most of the time.. I use some that a local guy here on Table Rock makes, or if I use store bought, I buy crock o gator.

 Sometimes pull the skirt off and put a horny toad on it..Casts great in the wind and planes easy.

When you do use trailer hooks, what size do you use?

If I want to use a trailer, I throw the D&M Buzz Saw. It has a free swinging EWG hook that you can rig your trailer of choice. It also makes it weedless.
