Buzzbait Bass

Posted by Caveman Cooking on May 23, 2010

Buzzbait BassCatching Largemouth Bass (and then releasing them) with a “buzzbait” is one of my favorite ways to fish for them. Part of it is the great fight you usually get from the fish after a “reaction strike”. Mostly, however, it’s the rush of watching the fish explode on the artificial bait as it churns across the surface of the water that makes it so much fun to use. Unfortunately, I hadn’t been able to get one to even nibble at my buzzbait since last Fall. It was getting a little frustrating, especially since I had recently watched a couple of friends score on their “buzzers”. Finally, though, I was lucky enough to get a fat 4+ pounder to inhale one … it was a blast! If you’d like to read the whole story just click here.

    The biggest bass I ever caught was on the original Vibrax spinner (the old bullet shaped one). Pretty much the description you gave, explosive fight.

    • Never fished the Vibrax, Chris. But, I hear of people catching fish on them all the time. How big was your biggest LMB? Mine was a pair of twin 7.5 pounders one day out of Lake Cachuma near Santa Barbara.
