At a Glance: Buzzbaits

Buzzbaits are combinations of jigs and spinners creating larger profiles and tremendous vibration and motion. Buzzbaits are great options for fishing shallow to mid-depth waters. The variations include soft-body styles, skirted, and even dressed-hook styles. Buzzbaits are especially great for fishing shallow water because they stay near the top and are only pulled under the surface when a fish bites the lure. Buzzbaits can also be used in all water conditions, from murky to crystal clear due to the incredible water disturbance and vibrations. These types of baits are typically only used in freshwater and are available in sizes perfect for species such as crappie, bass, pike, and musky.

Popular brands of buzzbaits available at FishUSA include Strike King, Accent, War Eagle, Z-Man and more.
