Because the lure is larger
in width than other buzzbaits it does come into contact with more surface

On the last of three test
days on the Delta Cal and I found a few nice tule coves along the levees and
pulled a few bass out by positioning the boat near the mouth of each cove and
fanning the area with both the Bi-You Buzz and topwater poppers.
When fishing on the Delta we were
greeted by goats, and they witnessed a massive explosion that occurred no more
than 60 feet from shore
As I started retrieving the
Bi-You Buzz back from one of the coves we witnessed a massive blow up, and the
buzzbait went straight down. We didn’t get a good look at the fish but judging
from the aggressive dive of the fish we knew it was immense. Cal jumped over to
the front of the boat with net in hand. “Take it slow,” Cal said as the fish
took off stripping line and causing my glass Kistler cranking rod to arc way
over. “That’s no bass,” I said as we dialed up the trolling motor to put chase
on the fish.
Testing the Cortez Shad on the
stained water on the Delta
It took nearly five minutes
to bring the fish to surface, and nearby trolling boats turned back to witness
the finale of the fight. When we finally get a glimpse of the fish a white flash
revealed a monster striper had taken the buzzbait right off the surface. Cal
actually tried two times before finally getting the striper into the net.
A look at the cove I was testing
in, notice the vegetation, the Bi-You Buzz didn't hang up at all
