All my knowledge is for bass. Buzzbaits are great early morning or evening baits. They also work really well in stained or muddy water. It is a pretty easy bait to fish. Using a 6:3 reel use a nice steadly so that the bait gently slaps the top of the water. Too fast of return will be too aggressive for good fish to strick. I hope this helps. Treat it like a spinnerbait that works the on top of the water.

Dice,

When you hear 6:3 in terms of a reel, it's referring to the gear ratio. To get technical, it should be 6.3:1. Common gear ratios in reels are 6.3:1 / 5.3:1 / 4.1:1. A 6.3:1 reel is a high gear speed ratio. What this means is that for every crank of the reel it's going to bring in more line than a lower gear speed reel.

But....gear ratios can be deceiving. Another thing that you need to look at if you're concerned about gear ratios is the spool diameter. (I should mention, we're talking about bait casting reels!) If you have two reels with the same gear ratio but one spool is much narrower than the other, the narrow spool is going to have a much lower "actual" gear ratio.

Why is this? The gear ratio is assuming that you have a full spool of line. With a narrow spool, you're going to get down to the base of the reel much quicker just because the reel doesn't hold as much line. The closer you are to the base of the reel, the more turns you're going to have to make with your reel handle to retrieve the same amount of line that you would with a full spool.

So really, a lower gear speed ratio on a reel could actually be better for cranking at high speeds than a higher gear speed ratio. I fish for muskies and one such reel in the musky world that would fit this is the Abu Garcia 7000C3. This reel only has a 4.1:1 gear ratio. But it's probably the best reel for high speed cranking bucktails, simply because it has a very big spool.

So to answer your question quickly. It's the gear ratio. But there's much more that goes into than just the number. This is probably way more technical information than you need or want, being a newbie when it comes to fishing. Being a newbie, you're probably using a spinning (open face) reel and all of this baitcaster talk will be irrelevant?

A Buzz bait should get you a lot of action. always check to see if anything is behind it before you pull it out of the water. Many times I have had Bass Northern, even bait fish following it up to the boat. Then do a figure 8 or 2 with a stop and go. If bait fish are following see what kind, that is many times your feed fish for larger fish. Check you spinner baits the same way.

AWH makes some very good points, but since you seem interested and I have nothing better to be doing. The proper gear ratio can assist you in presenting certain types of baits, for example if you have a top water set up and use a lot of slow moving or walking baits a 5. 3 gear ratio is not a bad choice. One more point the gear ratio can aid in the fish you might be targeting a 4.1 ratio will provide a much better wenching ability where as a 6.3 will allow you to make fast retrives on fish that make quick runs either at the boat or trees or other problem areas. Over all though any of the 4 common baitcaster gear ratios will allow you to catch fish they can just assist you in presenting or landing.

Polarized sun glasses will really assist especially in fairly clear water, but if you are fishing in stained or muddy water it doesn't matter what kind of glasses you have on. They really help your ability to watch your lure. Like with a spinnerbait, you will be able to see the skirt and blades move threw the water even though it is about 6-18 inches below the top of the water. Your retrival speed to vary, there is no sure fire guaranteed method. Sometimes different lures can be fished extremely slow or fast. At times a reel and pause method will trigger strikes. It will all come with some expreience.
