Modifying A Chatterbait To Keep It From Raising Fast

Recommended Posts

Hey guys so I have recently picked up a *** Crazy Blitz. I really like it other than it comes up very fast. I was wondering what I could do to make it raise up a little slower? Any ideas? Thanks!

Use a heavier, denser baitbait for a trailer. Keitechs are pretty dense.

This.  Obviously the heavier the bait you have will stay down better.  Don't own any of these but the smaller the blade on the jig is, the tighter action and deeper it will run.

Taking the skirt off will probably help too.

If you're looking to fish these baits "deep" and that's a relative term as the design itself is somewhat counter productive, check out the V&M Pacemaker Ledge Blade  -

 

It comes in 3/4 & 1 oz sizes and is made to fish below what most lighter blades baits are routinely not able to maintain.

Thinner diameter line may help combat some of the lift when reeling, as it is displacing less water. In practice, I'm not exactly sure if it works, but on paper it does.

I've never done it but if I was wanting to get one deeper them I'd try a weight on the line .

Try a heavier trailer. I have had the same problem that you had, and the vest way I could fix it was a denser so it's still small but heavier trailer

Bend the tip of the blade back towards the bait, this will help it ride lower. At least it does with fogys

This will help with any flat bladed chatterbait.

Wrap some lead solder around the hook shank. Cheap and easy to do.

Yep this, designed not to ride up the water column. In fact it was designed to be crawled on bottom or slow rolled on/near bottom. Chatterbaits in general are designed to be fished s-l-o-w-l-y
