Gear Review: Jackall Chubble 80SR

What is it?

Jackall Chubble 80SR

What sets it apart?

This 3 1/2-inch, 1/2-ounce minnow-shaped crankbait was designed as the ideal size for U.S. bass tournaments. Built for buoyancy, the bait’s square bill allows it to bump its way through rocks and stumps with minimal snagging. The magnetic weight transfer system promotes long casts for covering water while balancing the bait to keep it running true even on fast retrieves.

How do I use it?

Jackall fits this 2- to 4-foot bait with a Nano-coated hook, which optimizes penetration by eliminating friction. The Chubble 80SR’s hook bumper keeps the hook true by preventing interference with the magnet in the lure’s body. The bait is offered in eight colors – RT Holo Bluegill, RT Scale Minnow, SG Threadfin Shad, Ghost Wakasagi, Super Shad, Blueback Gold Chartreuse, RT Escape Craw, Black Back Craw.

Angler’s insight:

The slimmer, elongated body is a different shape than the majority of mainstream squarebills, but Jackall’s design offers more of a finesse look at this style of bait. The Chubble 80SR should prove helpful during periods of high fishing pressure, such as the prespawn, when the fish see a lot of shallow crankbaits. Lifelike details, such as 3D eyes, gills and textured scales help close the deal. That weight transfer system is key, as keeping your distance often makes the difference between fishing and catching.
