Z man chatter bait

Recommended Posts

This is the only type of spinner / buzz baits I've had any success on. I'm starting to really love them. Ive been throwing them first when I walk up to fish. 

I reel in and get a nice vibration going and pause for a second Or 2 and then start cranking again. Is that the right way to work these? Or is there a better way.

If you are catching fish on the lure then you are working right. When it stops working then try different retrieves or different colors.

If the fish are eating it, then you're working it right.

There's a bunch of different retrieves that work with that style bait. I do well with a slow, steady retrieve most of the time, but a stop and go can be really good too.

I like being able to feel the vibration for some reason, IL try fishing it slower next time  I'm out.

You should always be able to feel the vibration. I reel it just fast enough to get the blade moving. If I stop feeling the blade, or it feels like the vibration changes, I set the hook. A lot of the time, there's a fish there.

I used to fish vibrating Jigs like spinnerbaits, keep them near the surface and I would catch fish, I would also do well waking them under the surface etc..

But I have found that slow and steady with slight pauses, or letting it flutter down and then ripping it up can trigger strikes...I often think the trailer makes the most difference since a swimbait vs. fluke gives the bait 2 completely different actions. 

You can also mess with the weight distribution using suspend dots on the blades to keep them from coming to the surface. I like to fish smaller 3/16 and 1/4 oz in many places on tough days and if you add weight to the blade, they stay down better if you want to use a slow/fast or erratic retrieve. I love experimenting with bladed jigs, I think you can catch fish on them using whatever retrieve you want if you are casting in the right areas. I often get strikes right at the boat as I am getting ready to make another cast, sometimes they miss it but they must have followed it up to the surface, so when that happens I try a yo yo retrieve and the odd thing is some days more strikes come on the way up then on the fall which is usually rare for me with other baits.

I love bladed jigs. Caught my PB on a 3/8 black and blue one. I'll typically use a steady retrieve as well, but stop and let it drop if I feel it is too high in the column. However different weights can address this as well.
