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.

There are a lot of copy cats out there and even some improved models. There are none of these that come close. The action is tighter and it drives fish crazy. The original Chatter Bait is still at the top of my list!

I don't know if the bass had not seen the chatter bait or I just had not used it before but it caught fish all day while my friends didn't do nearly as good using worms, plugs, and buzz baits. I am convinced chatterbaits will catch fish.

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:)
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.
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.
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.
