It is hard to believe a lure that has only been sold for six years can become a classic, but the Chubby Darter has become a must have among ice fisherman. The unique action of the Chubby Darter is primarily for vertical fishing where the bait quivers and darts as the angler pulls upward on the rod tip. Trout, perch, crappie, walleye and pike all fall for the Chubby Darter. We strongly recommend a small snap or loop knot when attaching a Chubby Darter to your line to make sure the lure has unrestricted ability to wiggle. We recommend a light line (4-6 lb. test) to make it easier for the bait to drop to the bottom and it also lets the lure swim better.
