Buzzbait Trick: Tune the Blades

Buzzbait Trick: Tune the Blades

While buzzbaits are an old school bait that sometimes get lost in the shuffle of all of the new space-age lures and techniques that exist today, the time tested eggbeaters aren't ignored by the bass on your local lake.

To improve the performance of your buzzbaits, try tuning the blade(s). By bending the wire a slight bit to one side or the other, you can influence the way that your buzzbait tracks across the water's surface. That can be a key consideration as you wind the bait back since running it into objects like a stump, a dock post or a clump of vegetation can be enough to finally trip the trigger of a bass and cause it to strike.
