Tuning Buzzbaits


Although this is an old tip, it is still a very effective way to ensure your buzzbaits will run smooth when you hit the water. Simply take a buzzbait and hold it out the window of your car on the way to the lake. At 40 mph, the wind will spin the blade at a high rate and help remove any burrs that may be on the shank. Obviously, be careful while doing this and be sure that you do not let go of the bait. I’d also recommend having your partner hold the bait out the passenger side to ensure the driver is not distracted. Please don’t take a selfie with your buzzbait while you’re driving and under no circumstances should you target joggers or pedestrians, unless they gave you the “bird” (Just kidding).
