Jig it, spin it, buzz it, if it's got a wire or a lead head, it can and will be discussed in here.

I've bought a couple ultralight Chatterbaits Micros 1/8 oz. to try out, but I'm not sure what trailers to put on them. Straight tail, curly tail single, curly tail double, a small swimsuit? I don't want to kill the nice wobble action of the bait. Anyone use these little baits?
I've played around with them. My advice is to go thin on the trailer, like a 2.8 Fat swing impact is much too large unless you want to wake it. Probably want to keep the trailer size below a 1/4" thick to keep it thumping at a decent depth. Other than that, they're like a standard chatterbait, so you can put a straight tail on it and the vibration would add enough action.
As was said, you really need to be careful about the size of the trailer. Even the Keitech 2.8 is a bit much in my opinion. I have caught a lot of fish using the last two inches or so of a 4" ringworm. It works on the 1/8 and 1/4. My kids throw these baits a lot because they are easy to fish on spinning tackle. I throw them on BFS tackle.
