In-Line Buzz Bait Suggestion

Recommended Posts

Guys just throwing this out for a suggestion or opinions. 

 

I generally start my morning out on this particular lake throwing a buzz-bait. The last couple of weeks I've had a lot of blow ups and short strikes. That's just the way it goes guess. Not that I've never been there before. Really do add a trailer hook. Might give it a try this upcoming weekend. Generally fish a 1/8 oz. or 1/4 oz. SK Mini Pro Buzz or Pro Buzz. 

 

Just kicking around the idea of getting my hands on a decent in-line buzz to try. Thought I might try something slightly different to try to break the funk I'm in. I'll fish my way through it somehow.

After some thought I'm gonna go with the trailer hook. The baits work, no sense in trying something different. Blow-up, short strikes. Not gonna take the chance of trying something different now. I'm only missing the hook-up.

A buzzbait like the Cavitron with the stair-step design sits slightly lower in the water . I dont know for sure but it seems to get more hook-ups .

Grassburner. It’s expensive, but they aren’t missing a hook, even if they just swipe at it.

My go to buzz bait - the D&M Buzz Saw. Big EWG swinging hook lets you rig a trailer for a weedless presentation.

What type of trailer do you use?

In order, with the skirt my best results have been with a Rage Menace rigged vertically, a big grub or a Super Fluke. Without the skirt by far is the LFT Magic Shad (which is also my fav chatterbait trailer).

 

If fact, you can use just about anything. I got my butt whipped one Spring by my buddy who was throwing the Buzz Saw in white with a Merthiolate Trick Worm as the trailer.

I prefer an in-line, mainly because they're easier to cast, but catch just as many on a regular one. If you're missing fish with your current buzzer, try altering your retrieve (slower or faster), or bulk up the business end  to draw their attention to it.  I'll switch to a WP if  I get a couple of blow ups and no hook ups.

You could also get a homemade Teckel Sprinker Frog and retrieve it slow. That has a high hookup ratio.

Have a look at the V&M Buzz Frog -- weedless, great action, and great price.
