The first buzzbait on the market, the Original Lunker Lure® Buzzbait was introduced way back in 1976. Due to its incredible fish-catching ability the Original Lunker Lure has often been imitated, but no other lure has consistently produced lunkers the way a water-churning Lunker Lure does. For tough bites, go back to your roots! Original rubber skirt.

Great Buzzbaits This is the only buzzbait I buy. I have been using Lunker Lure buzzbaits for over 20 years now and can't complain at all. I do admit to making some slight modification to the lures by putting two bends in the wire to make the blade sit higher which causes the lead head to act more like a keel. I do this to keep the lure from rolling over which it will sometimes do if you run it slow. Finally I hold the cook with the blade pointing forward and get on the highway and driving about 55 mph for about 2 miles. Not only does it cause blade to spin more freely but it also adds a little it of a squeaking sound which along with the buzzing of the blade drives the fish nuts and they slam it. December 14, 2014
As good as buzzbaits get !! I've used the Original Lunker Lure Buzzbait since 1982. I prefer the white/silver blade in the 1/2 oz size. It works in all conditions but, I also like it when theres a slight breeze on the water. The wire is made of strong material and I have never had a problem with bending when I hit a rock or when a big bass or any bass inhales this bait. The skirts I've never had a problem with either. This is a bass catching lure and I rate it tops of all buzzbaits. Take a look at my picture of a lunker bass 7 pounds 6 ounces caught on a Original Lunker Lure Buzzbait in October of 2008 on a lake in the Carolinas that took the lunker of the tournament. February 19, 2009
Skirts are dull I love these buzzbaits and recently purchased some online. The skirt is dull and looks outdated, it doesn't have the fleck/glitter or shine that I was used to from my previous purchases. January 14, 2015
If I had to choose one lure: I've had such good luck with this lure over the years if I had to choose one lure to fish with this'd be it. On the rare occasions when the lunker lure wouldn't coax bass to bust the surface I'd fish it deep, let it sink and retrieve slowly, one way or the other this lure would produce. I would like to see this lure offered with a quad blade for slow surface retrieve in the late fall, other then that I have no complaints. November 20, 2010

A: 
Hi, Here are some general guidelines for selecting the right color to match the situation:

1. Clear Water. Color selection is critical when faced with clear conditions as fish are able to give baits a serious once-over from a distance. In clear water—match the hatch. I hate using that all-so-tired cliché, but it's so applicable. Clear water dictates a pattern that closely mimics the predominant baitfish in the particular bay, bayou, river, flat or blue water you're fishing. If it's killifish, then by all means use a killifish pattern. Knowledge of the local water always helps with clear-water color selections.

2. Semi-Stained Water. In mildly stained water, opt for relatively neutral colors. Why this may be hard to believe, in the water, blue, red and orange all appear neutral.

3. Overcast, Dark Days. When overcast, opt for dark colors; these include black, gold and varying shades of gray.

4. Bright, Clear Days. On bright, bluebird days lean toward light colors. These include white, chartreuse, chrome and silver.

Any time that bass will strike on the surface. I have one with a black skirt and black blade and one with a chartreuse skirt and chartreuse blade. Those are my preferences.

A: 
I've found the primo time to use the lunker lure is early morn and late eve, but I've had success with this lure all hours of the day and night. I have my best luck using White or White/Red during daylight hours and a darker color during cloudy conditions or after dark. I've also found the chartreuse works extremely well in the spring but no so well in summer or fall. For best action I'd suggest fishing from a boat, casting as close as possible to the bank and if the bank is fairly clear dance the lure off the bank on your retrieve. Always work this lure close to any type structure be it submerged or partially submerged, such as trees, surface vegetation, rocky outcroppings, and be sure and cast under overhanging trees or bushes which cast a shadow on the surface. Always remember, A bad day fishing is better then a good day working! Good Luck.

A: 
I agree with HowardHawgHunter, this is a great lure to use at night. I like to use this bait a lot around wood. If a limb is sticking out of the water, try to hit it with the buzzbait. This makes it look really injured and if there is a bass around, he will eat it 9 times out of 10. Also try casting to isolated wood. There are often fish on little sticks away from a big tree or log. I also like this lure around rocks that stick a little bit out of the water. Again, try to hit the rock with the lure, that gets a lot of bites. Also, i recommend putting a trailer hook on this bait so that you don't lose many fish. Hope this helps.

it's great to use at night, especially during hot summer months. It's also good on calm water in the early morning. I like to use black at night or cloudy conditions and chartreuse during the day or stained water.
