Recommended Posts

Does anyone add trailers to your chatter bait ,and if so what is your weapon of choice?

It is funny, I don't use trailers on spinnerbaits but I always use a trailer on a chatterbait. Most of the time I'm using a swimbait trailer but I will also use a fluke style trailer from time to time.

Thanks ,yea I don't know ,I always used them straight out of the box but yesterday I put a 4 inch pit boss on a couple of them . I cut about 3/4 off first, don't know if it will catch fish but they look good.

Yes i do. Mostly paddle tail swimbaits but also grubs and, sometimes, rage tail craws.

When I use Z Man's I use the twin tail they come with. 

For others I use a headless shinny dipper.

I've recently started using the new Gary Yamamoto Zako Swimbait on all of my chatterbaits and I've fallen in love with it.

Thanks they all sound good, going to need another box for plastics , I can see that coming.

For the swim jigs like the 3.8 or the 4 inch fat swing impact or any the above would work alone with one of those hooks with the weight on the shank, don't know what there called

I use a variety of Keitech paddle tails mostly - usually the easy shiners or the Swing Impacts. For a bladed jig, since I rarely fish it on the bottom, I will almost always have a paddle tail or fluke style trailer. On occassion I'll throw a craw trailer, but it's rare.

Always. For me, either 3.8” Keithech, or a Rage Menace when I was a smaller profile with a bit less action.

Always. I usually replace the skirt (or cut off the built in trailer strands) and wire it on, and add a rat tail (like a bass assasin) salt water 5"-7" trailer.

Thank god I am not the only one, I tend to replace the skirts after the first season on the chatterbait.
