Bryan Thrift has been winning tournaments with the original chatterbait, designed by Ron Davis, for well over a decade. After Z-man bought the rights and patents to the original chatterbait, Bryan has continued to fish them, because he has confidence that they are the best vibrating jigs on the market. In this bass fishing seminar class video, Bryan talks about the current models of the chatterbait that he throws most often, how he pairs the bait with the correct trailer for the depth he's fishing, how to fish a vibrating jig deep, and, lastly, he shares some tips for fishing the chatterbait.
