The buzzbait is a wired frame topwater fishing lure built around a propelling blade that creates a distinct buzzing noise when in motion. Near the lure's line tie, you'll see a two or three-sided buzzing blade that spins freely. As the bait transitions down, a rubber skirt covers the lure's lower section, which helps conceal the hooks with the inviting action from the strands of a dangling skirt. Buzzbaits are most commonly fished in warmer temperatures near the shoreline. Unlike most other topwaters, buzzbaits will sink, and to prevent that, start a fast retrieve as soon as the lure touches water.
