What is your favorite brand of skirts for spinnerbaits and chatter baits?

I like the Zman line of skirts. Silicone skirts and the collar stays solid. Oh and the War Eagle skirts are great too.

I make my own chatter baits and jigs and about to start making some buzz baits and spinner baits. I make them because I enjoy making them and I can make them any colors I want to try. And not counting the time it takes, it is a whole lot cheaper and I can tune them how ever I want to.

Same here. Been doing it for years. I'm very picky about my spinnerbaits.

For skirts I buy bulk rubber and cut it as needed. Much less expensive and I can make the colors I prefer.

I've been making my own for many years.

Supplies from Barlow's.

Cut with her golden oars the silver stream,
And greedily devour the treacherous bait.

I’ve been purchasing 6th Sense skirts because of the color selection and price.

I build all my skirts out of living rubber. I order from 4 different companies. No one company has all the colors available and there is some rubber out there with patterns in it that are super good. I use living rubber because it holds the scent that I use on the skirt material. All spinner baits skirt materials are given a bath in Pure Minnow Extract for 24 hour then laid out to air dry. Jig Skirts get the Crayfish Bath. Silicone materials will not hold scent for very long. It washes right off. Living Rubber is a little more difficult to take care of if you want them to last over time. I send those instruction with your orders.


Each person you work with holds some promise to your future success.

Fishingskirts.com has a lot of colors and styles in both silicone and rubber. They do have some skirts per-assembled but skirt tools and collars are inexpensive and you have a lot more flexibility to customize.
