Bizz Baits' Ned Dizzy

Bizz Baits' Ned Dizzy

Since the spring of 2018, Midwest Finesse anglers and several Finesse News Network members have been keeping an eye on Bizz Baits’ creations.

When one of these anglers saw a YouTube video of Brian Souza of Huntersville, North Carolina, at the 2020 Bassmaster Classic Outdoor Expo on April 20, he alerted us.

Souza is the proprietor of Bizz Baits, and his YouTube video focused on their newest creation, which they call the Ned Dizzy.

Ultimately, we exchanged emails with Souza, telling him that we would like to publish a detailed gear guide about his finesse bait. And he graciously provided us with samples to work with and thoroughly examine.


Here is what we discovered about it.


According to our measurements, it is exactly 3 ¼ inches long.

In some Midwest finesse anglers’ eyes, it is a finesse-sized soft-plastic worm. In the eyes of others, it is a unique stick-style bait that is adorned with a marquise-diamond-shaped tail, and this tail replicates the one that embellishes Bizz Baits’ Dizzy Diamond worm.

The tip of its head has a slight indentation, which is where Midwest finesse anglers will insert the hook and bait keeper of a small mushroom-style jig. The width of the head is about one-quarter of an inch with a circumference of about fifteen-sixteenths of an inch.

The anterior section of the Ned Dizzy, which is 1 9/16 inches long, is encircled with 18 major ribs or segments. The dorsal and ventral areas of this section are identical. At rib number seven, which is five-eighths of an inch from the tip of its head, the width of the torso is about three-eighths of an inch with a circumference of 1 ¼ inches.


The entire anterior section is cylinder-shaped.

Rib number 18 is situated at the junction of the anterior and posterior sections, and it has a width of about five-sixteenths of an inch and a circumference of about 1 1/16 inches.

The posterior section is encircled with 10 ribs or segments, and they are radically smaller than the ones that embellish the anterior section. For example, the posterior’s tenth rib, which is situated at the junction with the marquise-shaped tail, has a width of about three-sixteenths of an inch and a circumference of five-eighths of an inch. This 10-rib portion of the posterior section is cylinder-shaped.


Its marquise-diamond-shaped tail is five-eighths of an inch long. Souza calls it a “bulb tail.” Its dorsal area is triangular shaped with 13 minor ribs. At its widest and highest point, which is situated at the sixth rib and five-sixteenths of an inch from the tip of the tail, it has a height of one-quarter of an inch, a width of seven-sixteenths of an inch, and a circumference of 1 1/16 inches. The tail’s ventral area is flat, and except for the word Bizz, which is lightly embossed on the surface, its epidermis is smooth.

According to Souza, the torso’s robust anterior section that is encompassed with a series of significant ribs and the dramatical smaller dimensions of the posterior section that is tipped with the marquise-diamond-shaped tail provokes the Ned Dizzy to gyrate, undulate, and vibrate differently than other kinds of finesse-sized stick-style baits or worms.

Souza notes that it is manufactured with their “signature buoyant plastic,” but it does not float.

It is available in the following hues: Alabama Craw, Black and Blue, Embers and Ash, Green Pumpkin, Green Pumpkin Magic, Junebug, Magic Craw, PB&J, Summer Craw, and Watermelon Candy.

It is impregnated with salt and Bizz Bait’s Jack’em Juice.

A package of 10 costs $4.99.

When Midwest finesse anglers affix the Ned Dizzy to a small mushroom-style jig with an exposed hook, they will present it to their largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, and spotted bass quarries by employing all six of the standard Midwest finesse retrieves.
