Offering the action of a crankbait, the profile of a jig and the flash of a spinnerbait, The Z-Man® Original ChatterBait® will have a profound impact on the way you fish. Designed to swim in an erratic motion that mimics wounded prey, the Original ChatterBait features a unique hex-shaped ChatterBlade® that pivots violently back and forth on the jig eyelet, producing enough vibration to let you feel every pulse. The ChatterBlade also serves as a weedguard to keep the hook from snagging on weeds or brush. The Original ChatterBait's EZ Skirt®, with super tough ElaZtech® Split-Tail TrailerZ™, creates an enticing, undulating action to provoke strikes. Perfect for muddy, stained water, the straight-tracking ChatterBait won't hydroplane on a fast retrieve and its depth is easily regulated.

  • Swims in an erratic motion that mimics wounded prey
  • Hex-shaped ChatterBlade pivots back and forth
  • Generates vibration
  • Provokes strikes

still on the fence as for now i can't really give this product a good review, because i am still on the fence about it. i can say that it does cast well and you can feel every vibration that the blade creates, i have tried fishing this lure in the early and late fall and early winter months when the bass bite slows down and so far i have had only 1 chaser and that was a pickerel when i was burning it across some weeds. i have tried every technique i can think of to entice a bite from bouncing it off the bottom like a football jig to burning it back in like a spinner and so far not to impressed. i don't care for their trailer or skirts so i trade them out for different ones. hopefully i can amend this review after using it more November 17, 2014
Good not Great A great bait don't get me wrong. Fish will come out of the woodwork in order to eat it. Problem is the hook sharpness. Also the skirt came off after my second fish. A little superglue fixes that though. Was jigging it through weeds and caught a 3lber couple casts in. Used micro white / chartreuse coloured one. Also switch the trailer that it comes with, a grub works better I've found. Overall great bait, I'm buying more. October 21, 2014
Nice change from spinnerbait... This bait is a nice shakeup from a spinner bait. Pleasantly surprised. The only issue I find is that with the wide gap hook, I have lost more fish than with other baits... The musky have taken a liking to it as well! September 5, 2014
ChatterBait I have a tackle box full of lures "guarenteed to catch fish. Unquestionably, the Chatterbait is by far the best of any lure I ahve used in the past 20 years September 1, 2014

Yes they do! burn them along prime pike habitat and you will get bit, hard! I guess if you jigged them on a reef for walleye you would get some bighters an dit would be easy to know when you hit bottom in windy conditions:)

A: 
Chattbaits will work for Pike like a spinnerbait will, but I would avoid Z-Man. The hooks straighten out with bass and will surely not hold Pike or Walleye. Go with something more substancial like D&M or Revenge available at Tackle Warehouse.

A: 
There really is no wrong way - anyplace you'd think to throw a spinnerbait, rattle trap, crank bait or a jig-n-pig, is a good place to throw a chatterbait. They come through the weeds better than a spinnerbait, and have a vibration that rivals any rattletrap/crankbait. A lift and drop is deadly on Lake Champlain largemouth, in place of a jig-n-pig.

A: 
Just cast and retrieve. If the fish are kind of sluggish an occasional pause will help the curious followers and not takers. This bait is best in shallower water, but due to its erratic nature, will call fish up from some deeper water.

I have used both and prefer the Z-man. The Z-man seems to have a better action on a slower retrieve.

A: 
chatterbait is better but the booyah has a hook that bends so that the bass cant throw the hook but the chatterbait almost never loses a fish anyway. I would suggest chatterbait over booyayh

A: 
both work.. I think the ChatterBait is better because of these reasons:
I have had more success w/ the ChatterBait. The vibration of the chatterbait just seems to be better at triggering strikes. It has a better wiggle. The chatterbait is also more catch/ snag -free because of the shape of the blade and the jig head. And I feel like I can control the chatterbait better as well.
