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.

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.

I got this lure just because it intrigued me and it sure amazed me. I put on a wooly bug as a pork and with the 3rd cast I landed a 2 pounder that was a chunk. I am definitely buying more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Russ13F Great bait for grass!!!!
I love these baits. Pulled a few of 2-pounders out of thick grass with them. Chartreuse and White work the best. I recommend these to anybody fishing bass that are spawning in grass. Also recommend following the recommendations on the back of the pack and using braid line.

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.
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.
