The Chatter Blades

The Chatter Blades

 

For me, the chatterbait is now a must have for the tackle box. The blade creates a very strong pressure wave under water and therefore rarely goes undetected. There are more and more chatterbaits available on the market in different designs, all of which are pre-assembled. When it comes to street fishing, I usually start with little gear, but I still want to be prepared for every situation. The Chatter Blades create the same pressure wave under water as pre-assembled chatterbaits, with the difference that I can decide for myself which rig I attach the blade to.

Endless Possibilities

Jig heads, skirted jigs, bottom jigs or even jika jigs can be pimped with the help of chatter blades. All you need to do is attach the snap rings, which are included with the blade, to the rigs. For us anglers, this means a decisive space saving in our fishing bags and a significantly higher flexibility on the water compared with pre-assembled chatterbaits. Aswell as the variety of different mounting options, the blades are available in two sizes (16mm and 20mm) and in four different colors.

 

The structure

Before the Chatter Blade can be mounted, you should first choose the right jig head for the desired soft lure. In this case I use a Tungsten Micro Jig with 2.7 grams and equip it with the Slug 73 in the color Goby. Thanks to its soft paddle tail, the slug reacts to small impulses with sweeping movements.

As a small addition, jig slips can be put onto the hook in front of the shad. So we can create a homemade skirted jig quickly. Due to the jig slips, the bait has maximum activity even with little movement and in combination with a chatter blade, the jig slips are seductively “shaken up”. The jig slips are available in six different colors and have a length of 70mm, but can be shortened as required. So that I don’t pinch the slips while closing the boxes, I wrap them together with rubber bands.

As a last step we attach the Chatter Blade to our jig head. A split ring is already mounted on the blades themselves and a matching second ring is included in each pack for each Chatter Blade. First, the single split ring is mounted on the split ring of the blade and then on the jig head (important: the Spro logo is on the front of the blade). Now all that remains is to tie the leader to the snap and our chatterbait is ready to catch.

Tip: Due to the high-quality split rings, it is worth taking split ring pliers with you when fishing, as the stable rings (especially when playing with a drill) are reluctant to open 😉.

The Bait Guide

You really can’t make any mistakes when using chatterbaits. Even with a monotonous lure, the set up creates a quite powerful and sometimes aggressively perceived running characteristic. With short stops, the Chatter Blade slowly flutters to the bottom and the rubber fish tumbles seductively behind. Lazing around and jigging can also be practiced without hesitation. Because of the large pressure wave, the chatterbait is primarily known as an ideal searchbait, with which a large area of ​​water can be searched quickly.

In conclusion, the Chatter Blades are perfect for use in the warmer seasons. The versatile mounting options and the simple bait management make it possible for us anglers to find and catch the fish with little equipment.

Good luck on the bank!
