Bi-You Buzz Buzzbait
Booyah's newest buzzbait, the
has come on strong into a market where it is often difficult to carve out any
existence among the vast array of lure brands. The company does so with a
amalgamation of an aggressive marketing campaign (a catchy one at that) and
products that put a unique spin on traditional proven style lures. Whether it is

sunset surface strike applications.
