5 Chatterbait Trailers That Will Catch You More Fish

The chatterbait was the original bladed jig and it's been hammering fish since the first day it stormed onto the scene from Z-Man. There’s no debating it flat out catches fish. Chatterbait trailers, however, have been up for some debate. It seems like just about every angler has a different favorite.

Choosing which soft plastic to trail behind your vibrating jig varies depending on the scenario, so we’ve broken down 5 of the best chatterbait trailers for you here!

1) 10,000 Fish Yoto Worm

Explore The Yoto Worm

The 10,000 Fish Yoto Worm features a molded body with ribbed edges and a tapered tail, for mouthwatering action and realistic texture. The Yoto Worm is designed with four hook channels down the body, for several rigging options.

The Yoto Worm’s tickling tail end will help entice bites when rigged on multiple set-ups. Rig the Yoto Worm vertically when fishing a spinnerbait or bladed jig.

2) Gary Yamamoto Zako

Paddletails work well as a chatterbait trailer to add even more “thump” in your presentation. BioSpawn’s ExoSwim is a perfect example of upping the thump AND flash with it’s boot tail and ribbed body.

4) BioSpawn ExoPod

Explore The BioSpawn ExoPod

The beveled edge on the flaps of the Biospawn ExoPod are so money behind a chatterbait. The flailing arms dangle behind while the jig vibrates, acting almost as a soundtrack to the soft plastics motion. Chatterbait trailers trigger strikes visually once the bladed jig calls predators in with the vibration. This grub style bait is perfect for doing just that!

Rig the ExoPod horizontally to help mimic the action of a fleeing baitfish.

5) Big O’s Gamechanger Lures Eeliminator

Explore The Eeliminator

Originally designed to be Carolina Rigged, the Eeliminator comes with a patented flange on the tail is also a moneymaker behind a chatterbait. It may not scream “chatterbait trailer” at first glance, but slide that chunky body onto your vibrating jig and bass won’t be able to resist.
