Best chatterbait hands down

Recommended Posts

Ok let me start by saying the title is somewhat misleading because I'm sure anyone who opens this thread is expecting to see the so called hands down "best chatterbait" and that is not the case. After several years of tinkering and trial and error with different components and the end result is a chatterbait that will hunt a foot side to side and up and down depending on retrieval speed and manipulation of your rod tip and I can say with 100% confidence there is nothing even close on the market that come close to the action of this bait...i would absolutely love to show it but am in the process of obtaining a patent on what's behind my blade and my blade so to speak and  until that is accomplished it is secret...the purpose of this thread is to give you guys (and gals) food for thought when experimenting with making your own. I actually started off with the hope of making a better swim bait and not  a chatterbait and the swim bait I came up with was pretty slick and like no other swimbait on the market design wise but the action wasn't anything special. So I was fishing them one day with a buddy and he was throwing a chatterbait that he made and was smoking me and I got the idea to throw a blade on my swimbait so I took one off  one of his and put it on my swimbait and it was like nothing I'd ever seen and soon started smoking him and when I was in bed that night I got to thinking maybe I could make a better blade and that's when I went from swimbait idea to chatterbait..so after months more of tinkering I made a blade (if that's what you wanna call it) and when combined with my swimbait design is nothing short of amazing . My buddy wanted too see how the blade fished on his chatterbaits he makes and the result was pretty sweet and different than store bought baits so we tried them on tons of other jigs with the same results but when combined with my swimbait design(which is very odd) is unlike anything on the  market .. Here's the food for thought, there's way more to wether your blades are bent this way or that or how many holes or lack of holes, color, shape etc....maybe it's not how hard the horse pulls the cart that gets it there faster but how much the cart makes the horse faster....

Best chatterbait is a z-man chatterbait because its the only chatterbait. Now, bladed jigs are a different story. And the best one would be the fogy by seibert. Nice try though.

Yep, it's made with bits of real panther, so you know it's good. -Brian Fantana
