Arbogast Sputterbug & Sputterbuzz

Post by Schultzy » Wed Dec 24, 2008 5:03 pm

The top and bottom lures are Sputterbugs, the two in the centre with the delta blades are the Sputterbuzz.

I believe these are still on the market today. Mine date back to the seventies and I used them regularly until I went 100% to Aussie lures in about '94.

They work well, even at slow speeds unlike some fizzers. Brained bass on them. Also have caught barra, jacks, sooties and Murray cod in the fresh as well as a host of salt water beasties for me.

Hi all . . .

I found these in a box recently and decided to fix a couple up with some skirts and leave the original skirts on the others;

Never used them but thinking about trying the smallest ones for bass?

lol lol lol

Sputterbuzz (triangular blade) are FAR newer than the Sputterbug.

If you start on this NFLCC webpage you can then look at scanned catalog pages covering from 1941-1993.

Aluminum blades are the oldest for sure...it wouldn't surprise me if larger stamp is older -duh
