MY BEST BAIT: Why Brett Hite Relies on the Yamamoto Zako as his Key ChatterBait Trailer

June 29, 2022 • Major League Lessons

MLF pro Brett Hite’s expertise with a vibrating jig is the stuff of legend. The Arizona pro has racked up hundreds of thousands of dollars in tournament winnings with a ChatterBait and the variation he helped design for Evergreen, the ChatterBait Jack Hammer. In this new video, Hite explains why the Yamamoto Zako – a bait he designed for Yamamoto – serves as the perfect trailer for the ChatterBait: Bigger profile, good (but subtle) action and an “accordion-style” tail that collapses when fish bite, increasing your hook-up ratio. Great info from the master of bladed jigs!
