How To Fish A Chatterbait (Beginner Tips AND Advanced Tricks)

The Chatterbait is one of the best bass fishing lures of all time! Its easy to use, even beginners catch bass on them. So why is one guy consistently catching bigger fish on a Chatterbait than everyone else? Are you the guy that's catching them or the guy that's wondering why someone else is?

Matt takes us to the core of the Chatterbait technique in this in-depth seminar-style video on chatterbaits and bladed jigs. From the baits themselves to an underwater look at the Chatterbait trailers, we're going to examine every aspect of chatter bait fishing. 

We don't stop there, we're also going to discuss rods and gear for the technique. Matt examines both the finesse and power fishing approaches to Chatterbait fishing and explains the merits of both.

100 Bass Challenge With A Lucky Subscriber!

Huge thanks to Alex Centner for coming all the way from Arizona to shoot this 100 fish challenge with us! It was a grind but we pulled it off! 100 bass plus some bonus crappie and bluegill! 

How many fish have you caught in one day? Catching huge numbers of fish requires focus and commitment but if you take the time to locate actively schooling fish it can be done. By covering water quickly with fast moving baits like the spinnerbait and chatterbait we were able to identify areas that had concentrations of fish. Once the fish were located we were able to slow down with finesse presentations and catch the numbers we were looking for. 

Here's what we used to catch them...

Breaking Down A New Lake In The Rain

Come along with Tim as he locates fish and tries to develop a pattern on a fishery he knows little about! He explains his bait selection and thought process along the way so you can replicate the mindset on your own fishery. 

Tim breaks down the lake despite difficult windy and rainy conditions. He discovers the fish are schooling in the cleanest water on the lake and is surprised to find a steep drop in water temperature in the clear water. To his amazement the cold water didn't seem to matter as the fish clung to that clearer water.
