If you don’t do this with a chatterbait when fishing for bass, you might be missing out on catching fish. In this video we go over some chatterbait modifications, chatterbait tips, as well as some chatterbait techniques for catching bass in summer. We also talk about the best chatterbait trailers for fishing bladed jigs around cover and why this lure is probably the most important fishing lure of the last 15 years.
There is only one Chatterbait trailer you need for pre spawn bass fishing. The soft plastic Komodo acts like a swimbait, a creature bait, and a fluke style lure all in one when rigged up with a Chatterbait or Thunder Cricket. The tight action makes it perfect for pre spawn bass fishing as fish move up from winter to spawn. This is my bait review of the Gambler Lures Komodo.

In this fishing video I talk about chatterbait fishing tips and the best chatterbait trailers by testing them underwater. The soft plastic lure you pick to use on your chatterbait can really change the action of your bait so understanding what a chatterbait looks like underwater with different chatterbait trailers can help you catch more bass. We also reveal and test a new prototype lure that we made specifically as a jig trailer or chatterbait trailer. This is the homemade soft plastic version so it’s not perfect but the outcome was super cool!
The Wisconsin road trip continues on the Madison Chanin of Lakes and if you don’t fish a chatterbait like this, I’m telling you you’re missing out. We fished grass like we were in Florida with a chatterbait using a ripping technique to trigger bass in submerged vegetation to come out and eat. It’s a really simple fishing technique and a great way to fish a lake very efficiently covering water and fishing around heavy cover. It’s also an epic way to catch them, they absolutely crush the lure when you rip it out of the grass like this and it draws a reaction from fish that inmost situations don’t want to eat. I also throw in a more sublte way to mimic a bluegill using a squarebill crankbait in the same situation.
