buzz bait action muddy creek
« on: June 27, 2020, 08:30:36 AM »
Been working on the bass boat and swimming with the grandchildren. Hope I did not miss all the buzz bait action. Last year my best day was June 11. Got a couple on buzzbait at sundown last night.

best fish last night was 1.94lb

June 27. Launched at Peach Bottom and went up to Muddy Creek in bassboat (handles the flow much better than jonboat). Started at 4PM as that starts highest flow for day. 10 fish all about 2lbs. Was hoping to do better with the flow. Oh well! It is amazing how much water is in that pool when the river is getting low.

 I normally use buzzbaits spring thru fall generally in low light conditions but have also been known to tie one on midday...  ;)   Sadly I can't find my favorite buzzbait anymore.... the "maker" hasn't had my colors since last fall... e-mails/FB messages go unanswered ?  I had found some at an online dealer but had issue's contacting them as well and of course they are now sold out !  I bought a War Eagle but not real happy with it.

I still use Lunker Lure. Though I have tried others I always go back to it. I also tie direct to lure, skirts from my 30+ year old living rubber.

Enjoyed the pic...getting better at it...nice to see you without winter clothing

Never fished buzzbaits for smallmouth but I used to canoe a small lake near me that was loaded with largemouth...

They loved Winco's buzzbaits...now sold by Fitt

Now we are sweating  :) Fortunately there are a few shady spots for me down here.
Sometimes they will not touch it. But when they do it is amazing!!

 I "was" partial to these...  https://www.megastrike.com/cavitron ...  flat underhead for slow speed, bent hook shaft seemed to get better hook sets, holes in blade for extra bubbles....

 That counter rotating one of Al's design may be promising.... no weights listed though. Guess I'll have to ask them ...Hope they answer LOL

I met a fisherman at Raystown a few years ago. I told him I did not use buzzbaits for SM. He said, "you fish the Susuehanna and don't use buzzbaits for SM?"
I had 18 on buzzbait 6/11/2019.

I don't think I have tried a buzz bait in four or five years.  I used to throw them often but never caught one fish so I gave up.

What would be the best conditions for them?
