Buzz Stix

Recommended Posts

I didn't get a chance to use one last season but from what I understand, I'm glad I didn't waste any money on one.

My opinion, spend the extra cash on a good Thorne Bros. rod and that enough will make you a better fisherman.

I got one from the wife for christmas. It looked nice but it didnt do anything special...I didnt catch more fish with it compared to my other rods. I would suggest spending your money on a regular pole and caffine. Drink lots of coffee and you can shake the pole just like the buzz stick! You probably will have the same result...just with more bathroom breaks.

What did everyone think of the Buzz Stix this last season? How did it perform? Pros and cons? Should I buy one for next season?

I bought one just to see what the "buzz" was about. smile.gif
I think it turned some reluctant fish in shallow water.It does have a lack of sensitivity.
Its not going to make the fish jump on ice,but I had fun playing with it.If your after an extra rod and have room in the rod bag...I would go for it.

I also bought one for the same reasons. I will tell you right now that in deeper water even with no stretch line your jigs not jumping around like you think it would be. Checked it out with my Aqua View and movement was not noticeable. Might do something with tiny jigs in shallow water and no stretch line but for deeper lakes or even Lake of the Woods she's nothing special.
I use it as a "guest rod" as they get a kick out of it. Maybe the rod needs to be longer to get that erattic movement. Wish I could come up with such a gimmick at $39.95 I'd retire.

I agree with "hanson".Get a "Thorne rod",they are by far the best rod on the market.I own 8 and still NEED more.Once you fish with a "Sweet Heart" or a "Sweet Pea",you'll be hooked.

I agree with hanson, spend your money on a Yad, Thorne or other good rod. I personally did'nt fall for the 40 dollar gimmic, but I commend the company who marketed and mass produced this rod. They made a ton of money on a poor product...only in America.

I got suckered into buying at an ic fishin show, got it on a sale special- $25.00. took it up north to the lake of the woods- it did not perform in depths of over 20 feet, however in the 10-17', it did quiver enough to get the Eye'S to bite. My friend who fished in the same house went fishless untill I let him try the buzz stick and then he caught fish. now, you have to fish this rod like a jig stick and not a bobber system, as the end of the buzz stick is very sensitive-watch and fell the bite. I would recoomend it. I would also recoomend the Thorne bros rods too. these rods do not compare to the $15.00 rod and reel combos that use see for sale at every bait store. you want a cheap combo- you get cheap results or you just fish with a bobber. The Thorne bros rods are not cheap either, but then again you will feel the bite and see action from the rod tip.
it all comes downs to, you get what you pay for.......... and fish without bobbers..........fish

    • Mmm mm Thanks!!!!!!!!
    • your package went in the mail today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • Figured I'd loop back on this with an update.  I ended up getting the Weber Spirit 3 burner.  Picked it up at Ace Hardware.  Its the same price everywhere ($449) but Ace will assemble it, deliver it, and haul away the old one for no charge.  Bought it Saturday morning had it sitting on the back patio by 3pm that same afternoon.   I ended up looking at a lot of grills including many brands of gas grills, pellet grills, and some charcoal grills.  There were some other gas grills that I liked, they looked to be made solidly from good materials and they came at a decent price.  However, they all lacked a decent warranty.  The webers use less stainless steel than some of the others and I'm not 100% sure what the china production will do to the quality and longevity of a Weber but they do come with the best warranty that I saw.  I believe grates and flavorizer bars have a 5 year warranty and everything else has a 10 year warranty.  Customer service and part availability was also a big selling point.  Weber parts look to be easily available and if you do end up having to replace the grate, flavorizer bars, and burners it will only set you back $150 which should get you many more years out of the grill.    I let my almost 3 year old son pick the color since he came with to help pick it out.  I couldn't argue with his choice of red.  It is clearly the fastest looking grill, now I just need to add a racing stripe. 
    • Saturday morning I was able to put my tag on a nice bird. If I did no get to put some scouting time in I would of moved too fast. I knew these bird was going to show up but he never made a peep on roost or the ground. I was able to call in the hens with him following. The hens yelped twice on the ground and that was it. Had other birds gobbling but I knew this guy was around. It was him with 3 Jakes and 3 hens that pretty much stayed by themselves and nothing to do with the larger group of birds. I was able to see him the Saturday before opener and trail cameras showing he was coming through around 720 each morning. I shot him at 7:15 plan worked out great. 20 Gauge is becoming my favorite gun for turkeys. He was just a couple oz’s shy of 24lbs. double beard 11inch, spurs 1inch. Some big birds dropping. My dads was 25lbs and Protourbait above 24. Might head back to NE this weekend see how the week goes. I have WI left for a couple tags.
    • I personally don't use hens often.  When I do she's in a breeding position near a strutting tom.  I usually go jakes of various postures or no decoys.  I like to keep them guessing where that hen is at.  I've had too many mature Tom's hang up, strut and gobble until the real hens show up to escort him away when using just hens.
    • What would be the reasoning behind just using hen\ hens decoys? To put the toms at ease? I usually use the standard hen / jake combo.
    • Nice!   Yep, that looks just the way I hope to find em!  Nada for me but maybe if I get some time in the turkey woods I’ll have some better luck.
    • That's one cut I need to do on the pellet smoker. Everything so far has turned out real moist and tender,  I'm guessing since the door seals up so tight. I prefer as well to slice that day, the leftovers can go in the crockpot for shredding.. I better go get one.
    • Num that looks awesome. Bet the carcass would boil up to make a mighty fine tasty soup too!
