Throwing buzzbaits is one of the most exciting techniques on the planet. Most of the time, a slow, steady retrieve is ideal. Just enough to keep that bait gurgling on the top of the water. If you’re not getting bit, try speeding it up. Sometimes a faster retrieve causes a more spontaneous reaction, not giving them time to see the bait, just react. When you get a blow up, make sure you always follow up with another cast to the same spot. Make sure you’re using a good braided line so you can horse those fish out of heavy cover.
“I recommend fishing a buzzbait with a trailer hook. Many times you get short strikes where bass will swipe at the bait, but not actually take it all the way down. With a trailer hook, you have the opportunity to catch many of those short strikers. In fact, you’ll be amazed how many bass are hooked with just the trailer hook. It will definitely up your catch rate.”
