Bass will eat just about anything, from baitfish to baby ducks, crawfish to crickets and just about everything in between. But there’s little doubt that a crawfish is tops on there list. I guess it’s like a tasty snack to them; kind of like me and doughnuts. I see one go by and I’ll grab it up even if I’m not very hungry. Mister Twister’s new crawfish imitator, the Buzz Bug, seems to create the same reaction in bass.
Available in 14 of Mister Twister’s most popular colors, the Buzz Bug is a 4 inch long can be used in a variety of way. It can be fished as a weightless buzzing top-water bait, a jig or bladed jig trailer or simply a Carolina or Texas Rigged bait, so it fits a lot of categories in your tackle bag.
With 6 small legs on the side of the body and it’s super long J-claws set farther back and cut deeper than other buzzing crawfish imitators, the Buzz Bug has a lot of action in the water. Its narrow profile helps it slip through vegetation, while the claws produce a ton of vibration and water displacement. But most importantly to the fishermen, it produces bites on the water.
I had a chance to try them out last month during our warm spell and the results speak for themselves. Check out this video and you’ll see what I mean. After that, be sure to check with your local retailer about getting the Buzz Bug added to their inventory. It’s available already in several of the larger online retailers and is making it’s way out to local stores now. Try it yourself and let me know how what you think of the Buzz Bug.
