#10960, "Big fish bait: Chatterbait"

Over the last few years the chatterbait has become one of my most dependable big fish baits. I even had one year where I caught more over 10 on chatterbaits than I did on swimbaits. They're just that good.

I hesitate to give any suggestions where to fish it, since it's worked in everything from bare mud flats to rock to wood to heavy weeds for me.

During the day I like using a smaller bait. My favorite is a 3/8 oz table rock jighead with a baby brush hog trailer, in shades of green pumpkin. Although this is a custom made bait, it looks an awful lot like the original chatterbait.

At night I move up in size. I particularly like a 1/2 oz Ganns jig, that comes with a knarly 6/0 jig hook. I use a full size brush hog as a trailer here (see above pic) and trim about half the strands of the weed guard.

Finally, stripers sometimes love chatterbaits, too. I've caught quite a few nice ones off the beach on this bait.
