Rated 3 out of 5 Z-man original
These things will absolutely catch fish. When the rest of the field is chucking spinnerbaits, the ChatterBait gives fish a different look. I love these things, and always have a rod with one ready to go. However, for such an awesome bait, I have found that the hook component is severely lacking. I recently ordered 10 of them online and when I got them, 4 of the 10 had hooks that needed serious addressing, right out of the package. As a result, I wouldn't buy one unless I had it in my hand and could see the hook first. I have since gone with the Elite version, as they use a MUCH higher quality, sticky sharp Gamakatsu hook, along with a beefier head-to-blade connection. Yes, they are pricier, but you can throw them with more confidence knowing that Gama hook is going to eat. I like to use a Starflash replacement skirt instead of the one it comes with. I also get rid of the twin tail trailer that comes with it and opt for something with a bit more beef/profile. Just a personal preference. Regardless of which one you go with, make sure you throw a trailer hook on it.

Two weeks ago, North Toledo Bend, using the chatter bait - within twenty minutes of each other I caught a 5 and 6 plus lb bass. I always have one tied on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jmatt916 very versatile
this bait can truly be fished in any way and still catch fish. the vibrations it produces are very strong and the bass seem to like it. the skirt and trailer give it a nice body and lots of action. bass in my area have a main diet of bluegill and the black and blue version of this bait is a great imitation of that. it even caught me a 20in 4lb largemouth on the first cast.
