The tight wiggle of a vibrating plug creates high-frequency sound waves that attract fish even in cool or murky water. Vibrating plugs work best for large-mouth, smallmouth and spotted bass; northern pike; wa11eyes; white bass and stripers.

Because most vibrating plugs sink rapidly, they are more versatile than crankbaits. Without changing lures, you can retrieve a1ong bottom in deep water, count down to suspended fish, or start retrieving immediately after the cast to catch fish near the surface. Vibrating plugs work well with a steady retrieve, but a darting retrieve varies the frequency of the vibrations and Tay trigger more strikes.

Vibrating plugs lack lips, so they are not as snag resistant as crankbaits. They work well in open water or a1ong the edges of weeds, brush or timber. But they snag easily in dense cover.

A vibrating plug is ideal for covering a 10t of water quickly. The narrow body has little wind or water resistance, so you can cast 1ong distances and retrieve rapidly. The shot pellets in models with rattle chambers increase casting distance even more.

For maximum wigg1e, attach a vibrating plug with a loop knot, never with a heavy leader or snap-swivel. A sensitive graphite or boron rod helps detect changes in the vibration that could signal a strike or indicate that the plug has become fouled.
