Chatterbaits catch bass – so how do you make the perfect custom chatterbait? In this vid I show you how to build a chatterbait with just a couple tackle components from Tackle Warehouse. The D&M Custom Baits Pirahna is the first bladed swim jig I fished and it has a slightly different movement and vibration than a Z Man Evergreen or Jackhammer. If you’re fishing a lake that gets a lot of blade bait pressure, this is a diy build you need to try fishing.
How to fish a chatterbait? I use a 7’2″ MH Kryptonite fishing rod http://bit.ly/2YXZnKs and a 7:2:1 fishing reel. Depending on cover I’ll fish it on 40-50lbs braided fishing line or 18lbs flourocarbon http://bit.ly/2YjSLXd

I love custom diy fishing lures and jigs but I don’t have a lot of time to do it. So I got a custom jig skirt making kit from Tackle Warehouse to make some. I have a secret jig color I love to throw that works in any kind of water especially clear to ultra clear lakes. Here is how to make your own jig skirt for fishing and the secret layer color I would recommend putting in any jig you are using to catch bass.

We tested the VMC Tokyo Rig to see if it’s worth fishing as well as did what I think is a pretty epic DIY Mod for ultra finesse fishing. Overall I think it’s a pretty cool rig! The Tokyo Rig combines a hook and a wire leader with a swivel so that the plastic worm you add fishes above the bottom. With our DIY Mod we’ve taken the rig to a more finesse fishing level adding a small cirle hook or drop shot style hooks so we could nose hook small plastic finesse worms for fish under a lot of pressure in clear water situations. We used the lure on a school of pre spawn bass that have been hard to catch on more power fishing techniques.
