the morning and eve is the best, but you can catch fish on them any time of the day or night. run the buzzbait over logs, close to docks, right along the edge of weeds. close or over any kind of cover.and this one that most don't do, but works great on river smallies, but ripps buzzbaits up. cast the bait onto shore, yes I said onto the shore, just a few inches from the water. then start to retrieve it. alot of the times they will hit it as soon as it hits the water.

Over top of weeds that are barely submerged also.Along brushlines.

Also effective on schoolies when you see them busting bait on top occasionally,but I would prefer a spook or popper in that situation.

We second this idea, especially on windy days.  Most guys don't think of a buzzer for windy days, but when fished over submerged weedbeds, they can produce some awesome results.  Some of our most memorable buzzbait experiences have been on very windy days.

We also second the river Smallies idea.  We catch alot of Smallies in the upper Mississippi throwing buzzers.

In reality -despite what most believe- The buzzbait can be and is one of the most universal baits a fisherman can use. It is great for active fish . It can be used for quickly covering water . Usually the first 2 hours of every tournament, I as well as other anglers throw a buzzbait. It catches little fish and big fish. I have personally caught bass the size of the buzzbait itself. When that happens I always go back to that saying"If a bass could grow to be 100 lbs-you would never want to go swimming in a lake again" A human swimming is the ultimate buzzbait LOL. It can be used for fishing the heaviest cover-most are pretty weedless-and it can be used in open water situations. Depending on the clarity of the water,bass can come from 30 ft to attack the bait. Buzzbaits can also entice aggression strikes or reaction strikes from inactive bass. They can be some of the most violent strikes that will have you wet your pants. Basically I try to find any of these two combinations together on the water-weeds-wood-rock. Those are components for holding fish. any of the two together ='s fish-all three together ='s a great day. Throwing a buzzbait over weeds is a blast-no punn intended- In and around rocks are great ambush points-Lilly pads are also great buzzbait fishing spots. Target the outside edges. Throw it right on top and drag the bait off and hold on. Most strikes come as soon as the bait surfaces.When targeting stumps or logs -dont be afraid to bump the wood. Sometimes that causes the bass to strike out of reaction. Once the water hits the 60 degree range in the spring is when I start throwing them. In the fall -the temp can drop to the low 50's and you can still catch the heck out of them. Bright bluebird skies(high pressure) or cloudy days, the buzzbait is one of the most universal baits for catching bass.- what the heck www.cavitronlures.com take a look
