    Funny I went on the e-bay to buy a white buzz bait with a white blade, the lure builder is in the same town I live in.

    Haha, the color is perfect from the original fish. Had some fairly unique color patterns for a Northern. A lot of it in the pic is shitty lighting, I'm in the middle of a kitchen remodel and going to put a spot light on it.

    Snout looks identical to the original fish.

    As to contour I haven't really seen many different looking at them in person, but hey whatever.

    I've gotten a hell of a lot of compliments on it, first thing I did was take it into my local bait shop.

    I guess the point is don't be an ******* just for the sake of being an *******. Some **** you can keep to yourself. But that ain't exactly your MO.

    Picked up my buzz bait it is perfect. I plan on using it for smallies on the Mississippi. 4 blade white so you can retrieve it slow.

    I am pondering if I need to have a fluorocarbon leader at the end of my 30# green spider wire. I will be primarily trolling for pike but also casting for bass. I will need to have a swivel inline to eliminate twisting from trolling spoons.

    Not in the area I fish pressured water, it is the little things that make a difference. Hell I use scent control on lures, wash the hands before you handle lures.

    It will not hurt.

    Unless the water is murky, green is visible at the depths that one usually fishes these species. If this were fly in waters, I wouldn't worry about it. But pressured water, I agree with your thought process. I want every advantage I can get.

    We have to evolve to circumstance. For instance, fishing salmon in Lake Michigan. Gone are the days a guy could sleep until 8, grab the boat and start fishing at 9-9:30 and still catch a decent amount of fish. With the water clarity these days, it has become an early morning (as is 4 AM or earlier) fishery.
