wow, nice job.  did you fish it over treefalls and other heavy underwater cover?

what color did you use.  i tend to use natural color buzzbaits (about 90% of the time), and i've heard that for buzzbaits, you should follow a color scheme different from what you would choose for, say, a  crankbait.  natural for murky and bright for clear.... but maybe it's a local thing???

The pic is my buddy. We fished a reservoir opening weekend, he had told me about the conditions that we've had, and expected 8-10 mph winds so we started out at 7am on the reservoir and man it was murky....I had this article from bassmasters that was about fishing buzzbaits in the spring so I asked him if he wanted to give it a whirl. We started out on the flat beside some rip-rap and we were in about 2-3ft of water perfect staging area for a spawning bass. He throw it out second cast and then he took about a 4 pounder and got him up to the boat, came off :-/ yeah it sucked so I then asked him if he wanted to fish a creek channel that turned into a deep cove, as soon as I told him to go farther back he casted the buzzbait out beside a stump sticking out....and bam the fish hit and not like a champ either she just gradually came up and hit it....I knew she was big because when all but her body came out I knew then she was a beast. The color he used was charturse, the conditions weren't so great so we used common since and got off the main lake and went into protected coves and creeks that produced some decent fishing.

I bet that fish made a "WHAM" when it hit. Slow retrieval?

Me and my dad love using buzz baits this time of year.  It's especially good in the mornings after we have had a few days of warmer weather and there is low pressure. We mostly catch them on black and blue in the mornings and evenings and white and chart. in the middle of the day.

btw nice fish  ;)

Nothing better then a good top water bite on a buzz bait early in the morning to get your blood pumping good.

By the way very nice fish!

Later, :)

I do agree, I love a good ole pop-r that bait is definitely my go to bait in the summer. You shouldn't stop fishing the buzzbait though it has its advantages trust me ;)
