Top ChatterBait Modification for Fishing Heavy Cover

Bladed jigs are deadly when fished through grass but prone to periodic fowling. Mark Daniels Jr. shares a quick bait modification tip that reduces snagging grass while more closely resembling baitfish. 


Removing the skirt on your bladed jigs is a fast way to reduce bulk, which in turn makes the bait more streamlined. Pairing the ChatterBait with a baitfish-imitating plastic adds fish-triggering profile and realism as it snakes through and deflects off cover.
