Best setup for a Chatterbait type lure
Posted July 23 2010 - 04:22 PM
So what about the latest craze, Chatterbaits,Pure Poison and the other baits similar to these.
I have several smaller SK Pure Poison baits(3/16oz) and im not sure I can get any really good distance casting this light of a lure on a baitcaster,without the fear of a serious backlash/birdsnest. Id probably wear myself out trying to get distance,casting that light thing all day on a Baitcaster.
Anyone throw Chatterbait type baits on a spinning setup with success?
When Fishing,I practice C.P.R. (Catch, Photograph and Release)

I use both baitcasters and spinning reels with spinnerbaits and chatterbaits depending on the weight of the bait and the water clarity. I have never had a problem using spinning reels.

You might wanna adjust the brakes on your reel and add a bulkier trailer for betting casting..but i dont see the harm in using a spinning combo if you feel you must
