Rated 3 out of 5 by TeamRippnLipz101 3 Star lure I am in the north and these lures scare the bass away, I caught 1 bass on it and it was only when yoyoing it August 2, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Kahunaz low profile I picked up a black/blue one and it has pretty much replaced my spinnerbait arsenal. I really like the action and how slow you can fish them. I also found that I can cast them alot further than a spinnerbait, probably due to its low profile. These are very productive baits, but I have lost quite a few due to snags. July 17, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by bassfishinteen Chatterbait? more like ChatterGREAT I bought the white chatterbait just to try out, I saw a commercial while watching fishing on T.V. about these and was eager to try it. I went out to my little pond and caught my biggest bass so far this season, i went out the next day and fished the local river and caught a baby muskie! I took it through weeds and it didnt have that much of a problem with them, only once did i catch one of those dreaded weed monsters but that was because i didnt yank it out like your supposed to. Overall this is a great addition to my tackle box and im eager to get more! June 19, 2010
Rated 4 out of 5 by btwnthelines316 Talkative This is what the chatter is about. I love this chatter bait and for the cost of it, it is well worth all the fish you can catch on this. This bait out preforms spinners for me on most days and the black and blue one is my money color. The only downside is the trailer, in ym eyes. I switch up trailers on it alot of times, just to give a better presentation and it seems to work best when I do. May 11, 2010

A:I have had good success using a slow stop/go retrieve
A:Just fish with a moderate reel. Or you can swim and then stop every once and a while
A:i find just casting out and wind back slow
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.
A:There is no wrong way to fish this awesome bait. You can jig it , burn it or a slow steady retrieve. I like to let it hit the bottom then rip it up about two feet.

A:Any place you would throw a spinner bait. My best success has been along weedlines
Details:I fish several ponds with muddy to tea colored water.
A:Fishing local ponds, white has been a good color for me. I throw the 3/8s first and if no luck move down to the smaller sizes. That almost always works.
A:I prefer white or blue/black....Blue/black for light days and white for overcast.
A:For the muddy water, I've had success with the black and blue. It works well in the tes color too, but I've had more success with white in the tea colored waters.

A:I mostly use the chatterbait
A: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
Top 25 Contributor
A:You can work this bait better and can reach places you can't w/ the booyah
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.

A:Both are good baits but frequently its hard to beat the original...which is the Zman
