The Buzz’N Gator was designed to be Texas-rigged with a 5/0 or 6/0 EWG hook. The bait was also made heavier than the competition, making it easier to throw long distances. Cast the Gator out there and quickly reel it back to the boat. The legs of the Buzz’N Gator make quite a disturbance in the water and throw a 3″ roostertail up behind it. We recommend using 50 lb. braided line for this bait.
