Something Is Buzzing And Its Not Bees
We all have used buzz baits and we know why the bass like them right? It's because of that little stream of water. Wrong! It's the sound! Yep, sound attracts the bass then sight.
Bass has exceptional hearing and sound travels 5 times faster in the water than in air.
On the other hand water isn't a good conductor for light waves. Since only a few of your casts land by a fish, using a lure like a buzz bait that produces sound is a good thing.
Cast that buzz bait in the same location a few times and let the bass hone in on it. If you're having late hits (when the bass hit behind the buzz bait) then slow down a little bit.
Keep the buzzbait on top and make sure the blades are going around to make the noise you need but don't reel it so fast that the fish can't pinpoint the location.
Just remember to let the fish have time to hone in on your lure and do it by slowing down your presentation.
Charles E. White has fished for almost 50 years for bass from California to Florida. In his lifetime, it is estimated that he has caught over 6,000 bass. His biggest bass is a 12 pound 14 ounce that hangs on his wall in his office.
Charles has fished with people who have never fished for bass before and taught them how to become successful anglers and also has fished with the Pros in Florida. His new website about fishing for bass is at:
