Buzzbait Tips for Big River Smallmouth Bass

The bass world has seen a pile of propped hard baits hit the market but the safety pin style buzzbait often outperforms; it combines the draw of a noisy blade coupled with a skirted jig profile that slips through cover much cleaner than trebled topwater varieties.

He stresses the importance of immediately engaging the blade upon bait entry into the water and shares a quick tip on how to accomplish this.
