Perch & Sexy Shad are a Tackle Warehouse Special Run Colors!
This is the original bait that started it all! The Z Man Chatterbait combines the flash of a spinnerbait, the vibration of a crankbait and the snag resistance of a jig. The patent-pending blade design creates an intense vibrating action, which is the key to this incredible bait and the reason it consistently entices explosive reaction bites. The Z Man Chatterbait is also extremely weedless because the hook always remains in an upright position. This allows you to put the bait in heavy cover where fish live.
The Z Man Chatterbait is a versatile weapon. It can be worked shallow or deep, and in a variety of different ways. Remove the skirt and trailer and try a soft plastic jerkbait. This combination works great on schooling fish. When fish are holding close to the bottom, try adding a spider jig or creature bait. Hop, bounce and swim this bait around deep cover for a vibrating, deep water assault.
The Z-Man Original Chatterbait is quickly becoming a must-have in every pro's tackle box. It is the beginning of a whole new bait genre and not just another fad lure.

Comments: I catch more big bass each year on this bait than any others. I like to stick to white, green pumpkin, and black and blue you can't go wrong with those three colors. I would also add a different trailer because there is many better ones out there than the one it comes with. Since I added my "secret trailer" I have been getting double the bites I usually would and my hook- up ratio is 100 percent plus the choke the bait.

Comments: I've tried other brands. I came back to these because, well, they work. Yes, sharpen the hook, modify it to hold your trailer, replace the snap, heck, add a new skirt.

Comments: Got a 3.5 pounder the first time i used it and a 6.5 the next day, and 6.5 is a very nice bass in CT. Haven't had and problems with the snap or the hook, but then again i haven't had it for long. Green pumpkin is the way to go.

Comments: I have never tried any other blade bait and I there is no reason to. I have landed many pike and bass with these lures with NO problems. match it with an arkie twin tail grub and you're good to go

Comments: The cheap "skirts" keep falling off on these, I can't keep a trailer on without a keeper, the hook dulls, and the snap occasionally comes unbuttoned as well.
From: Frustrated Consumer: OK 3/19/14
Comments: I don't know if Z Man reads these reviews but they should. The hooks and snaps on these baits are AWFUL. I do feel the Z Man chatterbaits have better action than other brands but that's almost completely negated by the fact I have zero confidence in landing quality fish on them. Sure, you will bring in a couple but virtually every one I've owned has ended its life shortly with a bent/broken snap. With as many of these things that Z Man has sold and now especially with Hite winning the opening Elite series tourney with one there is simply no excuse for this poor quality.
