Interesting. Two things that are similar that I do.
Although I haven't used the black and red buzzbait, I've found that black and red are important smallie colors. Jigs, soft plastics, even pork trailers, etc.

A friend recently turned me on to using a treble hook as a trailer instead of a single stinger hook on buzz baits (would work on spinner baits, etc. too. Dude is pretty fishy, so I take his word for it. I tried it on the Cumby last week and caught a bunch of spots. I lost a bunch, too, though, so the jury is still out on the treble. Could easily have been "user error."

Problem being, Gil, a lot of the buzzbaiting I do is in jungle thick cover. That treble hangs up bad. This spring we were killing them on buzzbaits to the extent they were ruining about two lures a day. Just had to throw them away. We had over 150 bass in two days with a 4-5# average. But they were coming out of a briar patch.

You'll see it in Nov.
