Who has buzz bombs?

8 posts in this topic

I'm looking for some buzz bombs for summer laker jigging. Widely used in Canada for vertical jigging, the diamond shaped lead lures slip up and down the line to a terminal hook, and they really do the job.

Never found them in the U.S., but I'm wondering if anyone knows of a supplier somewhere in the area.

Cabela's used to have them in their trout + salmon catalog, probably still do. I got some from them a couple years ago. Otherwise I've bought them in Fort Frances. Maybe you could find them in I Falls.

I found the company's Web site and can order them. I'll take a look at Cabela's and see about pricing. Never have seen them up here, but I'm wondering if anyone knows whether Marine General in Duluth might have some.

I believe that Fisherman's Corner has them and I am pretty sure that MG does not. I haven't really kept my eye open for them for a couple years, but Fisherman's Corner was the only place that had them around here at the time.

Steve, I'm not sure which sizes I want. I've e-mailed the company with Burntside conditions about water clarity, depth and forage and am waiting for a recommendation. I'll be leaning toward smelt-type color patterns, and I see on their Web site they've got two or three that look VERY smeltish, including some pearl series paint jobs.

We'll see if they get back to me by tomorrow. There are a variety of sizes, and it's the sizes, more than the patterns, I'd like a little help with.

Thanks for all the help, guys. Buzz Bomb already got back to me with size recommendations. Guess it helped that they are two hours behind us out in British Columbia. grin.gifgrin.gif

I'll call Scott tomorrow and compare prices with the online manufacturer's ordering. There's no rush. I don't need them until summer for vertical jigging out of the boat.

        My buddy and his dad dropped there front end of there pickup in on lake bemidji Saturday luckley they were able to get out with out harm. After all the rain and warm temps hopefully people learn now to stop driving. If you do go out walk not worth the risk. I'm looking at the forcast and after tonight the lows for nights are in the teens so hopefully things may heal up and I can get out a few more times. It's the middle of February I'm not going to be putting things away yet feels like I just got things out!

      We had to ride snowmobiles 30 miles out of the Canadian bush Monday and it was a mess. Filled our Otters with water even with covers strapped on.

      From what I am seeing on the Arnesen webcam, there is not much snow left.  Sleds would need scratchers.  Wheelers maybe a better option until we get more snow and there is none in the forecast.

      Coming up Thursday morning and planning on making the run to the reefs/islands via snowmobile.  Is there any loose snow left on the trail to keep the sleds cool, or would a 4 wheeler be necessary?  Any information from locals there would be very much appreciated.  Thx.
