buzz stix

Recommended Posts

Anybody trying those new buzz stix fishing rods. I am waiting to hear what others think of them, I can't decide if I want one.

Any info helpful.
Thanks

I have been using one for panfish.
The buzz made a big difference one day.It helped turn some finicky sunnies into biters. It seems to work best in shallower(>15ft) water too.Less line to absorb the vibrations.
It could use some improvement in quality.My button fell off and don't count on it for sensitivity.

I have used mine quite a bit. It did outfish my other rod slightly at LOW. I have been using it now in 32' of water her on the St. Croix River and I agree with the above post. It is better in shallower water. I used fireline on mine in a 4# diameter and I think that helps too. I am surprised at how long the battery has lasted. I bought extras and have not used them yet. I would have to say it has improved my overall fishing success slightly. That's good enough for me. I tend to fall for any new fishing or hunting gimmick and I can say that I have spend more foolish $$$ in the past.

Last week there was a thread on the old Buzz Stick and everyone poked fun of them.

Depending on where you go to buy them I saw them at sportsmans guide warehouse in s.st. paul. Maybe get a better deal than elsewhere. I thought they were a gimmick but may try one if they are enticing slow fish. Always can use another rod.

I got the buzz stick 28" for larger fish like walleyes. Took it up to Lake Superior for some trout fishing and it failed. The tip of the rod broke and the drag control works like cr##. For $10 less, I got the ugly stick last year and it is virtually indestructable. Catching large lake trout and pike. If you have not purchased it yet, don't do it, you will be very dissappointed with this product.
Chow for now,

Me and my husband bought a buzz stix for each of us and we both love it. Seems like the fish can not resit that jigaling in front of them. I would definetly recommend getting one.

I can't honestly say that they have helped me catch more fish. I like the idea of the "buzz" created by the Buzz Stix but without the sensitivity I feel I've lost more finnicky fish that I've caught with it.
The button is constantly falling off on mine. I've spent way too much time searching thr bottom of my portable for the battery which always seems to fall out when the button comes off. The battery is located just under the button.

Thanks for tip K&H1121, but that sensitivity thing still has me bugged.

My husband said for the sensitivity problem is to put a spring bobber on it. He has found that it helped him.
Good Luck. Don't give up on the buzz just yet.

I have watched the video that is usually used in stores to promote the rod. It looks like it would work great. But I have to question the durability of the vibrating device after catching alot of fish over time. with the pressure of bringing in a fish will it hold up????

    • I can see that, there some interesting water here!!!
    • Lol.... Smart one-just-like-silly-me     Anyways, it turned out my hunch was correct and it is a machine for doing back rows. I guess this is a $1500 device. Does anybody use this pretty regularly as part of their back routine?    
    • rumor has it he got it around little osakis lake!!!!!!!!!🤣
    • It will actually take longer with greater distraction looking for the lift remote and holding the lift button in for the 7 seconds to get the ducer out of the hole than pulling by hand. Good way to loose that trophy fish
    • nice jack-a-lope!!!!
    • IMO, the roof is the most important component. It has been said that there are only 2 types of camper roofs, those that leak and those that are going to leak.   Inspect any used camper roof diligently and make sure there are no soft spots and that yearly maintenance has been performed.     As far as slides go, yes they can sometimes be problematic but I would guess that there are very few new models produced today without one. Kind of like electric windows on cars. I used to avoid them because it was one more thing to go wrong but now you would have a hard time finding one without them.    Also, the RV refrigerator can be a problem in older campers. Make sure  it works before purchasing a used camper. If it doesn't,  that severely depreciates the value of an older unit in my mind.   I would just recommend walking through as many floor plans as possible and try to envision your family in there. One of the biggest mistakes people make is buying the wrong layout and having to trade much sooner than expected.     
    • nice!!!!!!! but i forgot the most important part............i didnt get me no bear!!!!!!!! friggin weather!!!!!!!!😡
    • What papadarv made for a cam makes more sense since you can pan with it and pull up the cam from 30-40 feet.  Lifting a ducer a foot and a half for $200 bucks makes no sense!  🤪
    • Looking at getting a camper and never had one before, but have questions. I have a half ton PU and looking at around a 24' bunkhouse style pull behind. It's just me, my wife and daughter and her bringing a friend once in while (why the bunks be nice). Probably use it 4-5 times a year and deer hunting for a week. Not sure if going new or used up to 10 years old at most.  Generally do the slide outs have issues leaking, breaking down not retracting? Brands good or bad?  Any recommendations to avoid or must get in getting a camper?  Thanks!
