I watched Chris Johnston and Gussey from Ontario wackem on chatter baits in 8-12 of water. FLW live. New way to fish them, new to me anyway. Yo yoing in the hydrilla. Fish were crushing them on the fall. It was cool to see a couple young Northern guys dominate down in Florida.

It's amazing how versatile these baits can be. I guess it's all in how willing we are to think outside of the box  :yes:

Still a week away from launch but I have a trailer made specifically for this application.  People use paddle tails on these and I think thats a mistake. Swimbaits work best when they get that side to side wobble. I am making something that is like a jointed/segmented soft plastic swimbait. I'll hit you up when I'm up.

No. I used to pour lead but got out of that about 10 years ago. I buy all of my jig, spinnerbait and buzzbait heads from Lure Parts Online, as well as all of my other lure components too.
