Rattles?

Recommended Posts

I have never added a rattle to anything. The only ones I have used are built into or already attached to the bait.

I think that for finesse fishing, you are looking for subtlety and the rattle may detract from your presentation. Rattles seem un-natural in this situation...

I primarily use two different finesse style jigs, Eakin's and Buckeye Lure's. Neither of these come with an attached rattle and I've never thought to add one.

I use Eakins style finesse jigs all the time and I never use rattles. When I use a finesse style jig it is clear to stained water and even though I have tried rattles they just do not work for me. Now for muddy water the Strike Pro model jig seems to shine. These are the only jigs I use that I do not make myself (because I cannot find the same rattles).

Yes sir I have.  I've tied a few up with rattles.  I prefer finesse jigs w/o rattles.  Sometimes it is a benifit though.
