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

It's nice to find a lure these days that works well while not breaking the bank to buy it. I am a casual fisherman and this one has been impressive. My most fun was nailing a 6 lb largemouth as the last fish if the evening when getting ready to go home for the night. It's now not the only Chatterbait in my tackle box.

I have used the ChatterBait for about 4 years now and Love It! There is no need to set the hook, the Bass slam this bait so hard it sets its self. I have used it in many forms; fast retrieve, slow retrieve, bottom bouncer, it has worked perfectly.

I have never been skunked as long as I had a chatterbait in my tackle box. The action out of the package is great, but it is also adjustable by tweaking the hex blade(spoon). You can burn it or jig it or do a combination of all your techniques. It seems to get the suspended fish to bite when nothing else will. I have luck all season, and all conditions with it. I regularly catch Largemouth, Smallies, and Northerns with the chatterbait, but it also works on Yellow Perch as well. Bass Pro also sells it for about 1-2 dollars less than other retailers!!

This bait works GREAT on top water or using as a spinnerbait. The only set back can be hook sets can be tough sometimes.

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.
