TYPE: Overhead 2-wing blade This standard buzzbait is a good all-around performer. As it's retrieved, it will drift to the left or right, depending on which way the blade is cupped. Keep it barely plopping on the surface.
TIP: Use the drift to swing the buzzbait under the edges of docks.
EXAMPLE: Lunker Lure Buzzbait
TYPE: Overhead 2-wing blade with clacker blade A clacker-style buzzbait makes more of a commotion, but due to the added resistance, you can't retrieve it as slowly, making it a poor choice for cold water.
TIP: It's the best choice for cold or smooth water and lure-shy bass.
EXAMPLE: Strike King Tri-Wing
TYPE: Side-by-side, counter-rotating 2-wing blades This configuration also runs true, allowing extremely slow retrieves that appeal to coldwater and lure-shy bass. Don't set the hook until you feel the fish.
