With a relentless drive to offer anglers new tools to catch more fish, Strike King Lure Company is pleased to announce the new Andy Montgomery Skip’NBuzz.This game-changing lure is specifically built to help anglers target out-of-reach fish in places where few baits will go.The legendary Strike King buzzbait, with a new design twist, is reshaping the way anglers find and catch fish.
To engineer this innovative design, Strike King turned to arguably the most proficient skipping and pitching angler on the water, Bass Pro Tour veteran Andy Montgomery.For two of his tour-level wins in his career -on Lake Norman and Smith Lake -the Blacksburg, SC native credits his ability to skip a lure into the dark recesses underneath a dock to target tournament-winning fish.
He said it took a company like Strike King to capture his extended vision for lure offerings. “My guys at Strike King and I designed this buzzbait to go where other buzzbaits just don’t go, and you can cast and pitch them too.” Montgomery said. “Overall, it is an amazing lure to run down the bank with and fish whatever comes your way without changing lures. But, there is simply nothing better than to skip it under a low hanging tree or put it beneath a dock and hear the explosion of the strike.”
To augment the skipping design of the buzzbait, Montgomery and Strike King also replaced the traditional buzzbait skirt with a soft plastic Strike King Toad. The bait is also sold with an interchangeable Rage Swimmer.
The Andy Montgomery Skip’N Buzz comes in four colors. Andy favors the white design when fish are targeting shad. In low light conditions, and when fishare feeding on bluegill, Andy will switch to a green pumpkinseed or black to get the job done, and pink when the fish want something different.
The Skip’N Buzz will be available in a 3/8-ounce size with an MSRP of $8.99.
