First cast.  Hung the bottom and lost lure.

 

The end.

 

 

 

Never had a bump on a chatterbait!

 

The end.

It catches more fish if you call it a bladed jig

You don't fish it like a regular jig.

You definitely can !??? I've had much success hopping it off bottom and pulling it though weeds. Lol this notion that you HAVE to use it like a spinner bait makes me chuckle. Even if that was "how it was intended to be fished when it was designed " there's more than one way to skin a cat brother . 

 

Chatterbaits are awesome. I like the "freedom" versions where you can swap hooks .

I only caught one bass with chatterbait, but lost like 2 or three so far. Actually twos but the second jumped and the hook came loose. 

 

Actually 4, 2 bass and 2 catfish.

Haven't caught a fish on one yet. Have fished it a little bit over past yr and a half. I attribute it to not fishing it in the right locations as a co-angler. It's not been like the boater catching them on one but not me.

I want to like them, and have caught a few fish on them, but I seem to have more luck with spinnerbaits and swimjigs.

That is odd. It's usually the first thing I throw when  hitting a new body of water. I can cover some ground and typically don't get hung up on anything

Those brush piles that are 40' out from the bank and just under the surface of the water do me in every time.

The agree with this.  I can fish through anything in a boat and be fine but from the bank and I can get hung up with no hook it seems like!  

 

I wonder if if it isn't the difference in angle.  Fishing from the bank normally had much less angle than a boat.  Not sure why but seems to make a difference.

Tied on my first chatterbait in black and blue today. Caught three in 30 minutes with a slow and steady retrieve. Loved it.
