Everybody will have their preference but I have always been fond of the Lunker Lure in white.

White skirt right now. Once you figure out which retrieve speed puts off the "right" sound they will beat it hard. I have some Buzz baits that work better slower and some that will produce better faster. Once you get the right speed that vibration/noise and water disruption will drive them crazy (if there in the area).

The biggest top water Bass I ever saw caught was on a yellow skirt buzz bait in about 3 feet of scummy looking water. I think it tipped the scales at around 6lbs 11 ounces. Hey Ratman do you remember that fish?

I've always been pretty fond of the Blue Fox black flash but I havent seen 'em in a while. I've just been using the Booyah's the last couple years and they've done the job well.

A buzzbait bite is as good as it gets to me. They absolutely crush them in the fall. Why is that Doc? I figured competion for bait was getting revved up pretty good by then.

Buy locally. These are inexpensive ($1 apiece), and they catch the heck out of fish. A buddy of mine turned me onto them recently. Po' Boys out of Nashville makes 1/4, 3/8, and 1/2 oz. buzzbaits in various colors. You can only get them at 2 locations in Hendersonville (a gas station and a trolling motor repair place), at boat and fishing shows, and at this guy's house. I think he'll deliver if you buy a bunch.

I think you guys make this up. I have had buzzbaits in my box for 6 years and every year I try them a couple times and still haven't got a hit. \:\)

White Lunker Lure with a trailer for me. May & October have been the best months for me.

Can't say for sure myself, but I prefer them fall over spring myself. You're probably on to something as they are actively feeding up that time of getting ready for winter. I prefer Pop R's and Spooks in the spring as water is warming up and also after the fish spawn as they are not as aggressive then and sometimes need to be coaxed into biting. Plus I can get those baits into hard to reach places and keep them in the strike zone longer.


Its always seemed that the buzzbait for me gets gradually better as the year goes on. I rarely even get bit on one until the latter part of May. I do however catch a few top water fish earlier than that on a Sammy or a Pop R. By the time October rolls around they hit top water like peacock bass on KY lake. Big toilet flush strikes. I've always just assumed it was a competition thing since they're usually schooled up pretty tight and from what I've read bait is a little harder to come by.

I love that first cold snap in October. High pressure, blue bird skies, highs in the 50's with a north wind of about 10-15. Cause a man to get his arm broke. ;\) I'm usually hunting instead of fishing though.

Any of y'all ever tried 1/8 or 1/4 ounce buzz in red with a black twister tail and stinger hook? One of the dealiest baits I ever used for river smallies.
