The bait mimics the motion of the worm or weed as it would move in nature.
Choosing a great chatter-bait is essential for pursuing the capture of one of the ocean’s treasures. What needs to be considered is the size, blade, and color. The blade is the part of the jib that emits the vibrating motions and the click sounds as well as it moves around with the water. The color should resemble natural fauna or flora of the area.
