Many anglers are jumping aboard the chatterbait craze. Chatterbaits are a kind of swim jig with a swinging metal lip that creates a hard thumping side-to-side action. You can fish them throughout the season, and they’re a top choice among shallow water bass anglers. They really shines when worked through hard cover like rock and wood, and you will get most bites deflecting the bait off of cover. The chatterbait is equally effective when retrieved fast over the top of vegetation or the outside of weed lines in the summer.
