Why so large for the front colorado? Looks like that small willow is going to be starving for pressure.

 

Picture makes it look bigger than it is, 3 colorado over a 4.25 willow.

@Chris Catignani,

What is that, a plastic tube?  Does it help keep the blade & beads in the correct position?

I have been working on wire tying skirts on and building custom color combinations. I strip the old skirts off and build them from the leftover colors and from the skirts that I already have. I am slowly getting better but it is tricky to get down, but hey when you first start off you learn by mistakes and what you observe. This is a odd combination that I made.

Missed the line tie when you first posted this. The only bait I have with this line tie bend is a Rebel that is at least 25 years old. I suspect the tube keeps the first bead from getting into the line tie?

I need to buy one of those baits to see what they are trying to accomplish?

Here are some of my latest paintings. I also tried my hand at my first carved jointed swim bait. Carving gills and fins is extremely frustrating. So much so, that I fille them in and tried with a Dremel tool and that dug in to the soft cedar.

My reason for making this one. Drilled a hole in the other side of a #3 willow. I thought it slid around too much and the reason for the sleeve and backer on the bottom wire. I have never held or bought an original, just going by pics. Hopefully it works, haven't tried it yet.....

Kinda sorta I'm thinking. A couple of the guys on here, can't recall their name without looking back at posts, swear by them. They go for around $18 retail so I thought I'd try my hand at making one. This is a picture of the Bottom Up Chibeeble

I may have to try making one myself. I have seen a video of a "chatterbait"jerk bait. (japan) That thing looked awesome.

I don't see how that would do much. I can't imagine it being anything like a chatterbait. Seems like it would just rattle around a little. I looked for an underwater video but didn't find one.

 

I rigged this up in about 5 minutes after reading your comment just to see what it would look like. I wonder if it would work... I hope I'm not about to start down a rabbit hole with this...

I hope it works but I fear the blade needs more free play. I've built a few 'what was I thinking' chatterbaits over the years.

I'm thinking the Chibeeble blade will push water and cause the spinnerbait to hunt side to side somewhat, less chatterbait effect. Haven't put it in the water yet but will try to remember to report back once I do.

Curious to know how the chatterbait blade on front of your spinnerbait reacts.

I think you're right, the blade will probably hit the bottom part of the wire.

 

And even if it doesn't, I don't know kind of weight or drag it would need for both blades to work.

 

I don't have much hope for it, but I'll throw it and see what happens.

Believe it or not, my spinnerbait/chatterbait contraption worked. Before testing it out, I added a 3/16 oz pinch-on sinker to the hook (it was a 1/4 oz $1 Walmart special before adding the extra weight) and I spread out the gap in the wire so the chatterbait blade could rotate the same amount as a factory chatterbait.

 

At first it was hard to tell if both blades were working because my water visibility is very low right now. I could feel a good strong thump though, so I took off the Colorado blade and then I could tell the chatterbait blade was definitely working. The chatterbait blade worked much better without the Colorado blade, so maybe a willow blade or smaller Colorado would work better. Also before I took off the Colorado blade it felt like sometimes the chatterbait blade wasn’t working when the speed was too low. Without the Colorado, the chatterbait turned even at very low speeds.

 

I doubt I’ll carry this experiment any further. I just wanted to see if the concept would work. It might be worth exploring for those of you that make and sell your stuff. I’m kind of surprised nobody has done it before, it was so easy.

@fin,

I've tried this, but found a regular spinnerbait worked better for my needs in the lakes I fish.  It's nice to see others try out/experiment with things. 

I've also tried adding a "chatter blade" to the front of a weedless spoon.

@BASS302 I can't imagine why anyone would want a combination of the two, but then I see all kinds of weird stuff coming out that I could never have imagined a need for. With the right marketing, some people will buy anything. I was thinking Chinnerbait, or maybe Spatterbait 😄

 

I tweaked it a little bit and got it running well, now I'll put it away until fish start biting around here and then give it another try. It seems like there's too much going on with the two blades to me, but I'll let the fish decide. If I catch one with it, it'll be good for a laugh.
