Buzzbait dedicated rod..like

Recommended Posts

I'm a top water guy. I have 2x hardbody  top rods, 2 frog rods, 1 for dark colors and other for natural. I was tired of tieing on for buzz baits. I used a gift card to get a fenwick eagle from Dicks. Pair with 8 gear tatula. So the question  braid or mono

Mono of those two but I prefer copolymer. Buzzbaits are for fishing in nasty areas and need a line to get them out of those areas.

I'm not a braid fan unless it's necessary but I've been using  braid on buzzbaits all summer and really like it. I do fish them around a lot of vegetation though which is why I am using braid now. No issues around wood, either. Same rod I use buzz frogs on.

I like 14-20 lb mono depending on the cover. I usually use big game or trilene xl. I've used braid but didn't like it on a fast action rod.. If you fish around grass I'd use braid

I've been using 12lb copolymer this season and last. It has worked out really well for me. I use it for buzzbaits and crankbaits on a MM glass rod. I have also not missed one buzzbait fish this year so it's the perfect combo in my eyes.

I don't use braid with buzz baits because I end up losing a lot of buzzbaits, if you make a miscast(which is common for me with buzzbaits) the wait of the buzzbaits and the blades tend to snap the braid for me. So I like 15-20 pound copoly
