Anybody use them? Picked up three yesterday. I have caught fish on jigging Raps before (smallPike and trout). I am going to fish Chatfield and Aurora more this year as long as the ice cooperates? All the time I spend walleye fishing and I have never caught one thru the ice.

I have used them some the last couple of years. Have yet to get bit, but I'm a slow learner so I'll probably keep on trying. They sure look good in the water.

Like Don said,they sure look good-if I were a fish I'd hit 'em! In all my years icin I just have not done well with these type of lures. I have seen guys right next to me do some whuppin on the perch with chubbys. I have caught all my ice wallys on kastys or pimples. Although I have caught some nice trout on rattle traps through the ice.

They are simular to the Rap,but much bulkier! They are supposed shoot upward and to the side, like a real minnow would if frightened.

I am going to hit Glendo thru the ice next year! Have always wanted to ice fish there, but have never gone there in the winter.

It would be fun to get a group of us to go up there! Fishing sucked last summer, but the shad would be thinned down alot I would imagine? There are some real nice crappie in there also!

And Glendo's close enough to be either a 1-dayer or a stay-over. Only prob for some people will be the License fee-$10/day or $86.50/year. I always buy a yearly one anyway.

The first year the Chubby Darter came out (3 years ago?) I caught a walleye on one at Chatfield. I had been jigging it and hooked a trout on my 2nd line so I set the Chubby down and landed the fish and when I got back to the Darter a walleye about 16 inches jumped on it. I've caught a few trout on it since but haven't used it that much. I will this year and I'll let it sit for long pauses!!!

Hopefully we can hit a decent weather weekend in January,sounds like a hoot!It'll be prolly be a spur of the moment type thing due to the changeable weather.

Chubby Darters have worked grate 4 me.   I've caught Limits of Walleyes out of Devils lake & Jamestown Res in North Dakota.   I've watched walleyes swim past 7 other
lures to hit a darter that is being jiged.-4 rods alowed in ND -

     In Colorado  I've caught walleye @ Chatfeald, Bolder,
and Lone tree on darters..     The best one is the small oringe & silver ..
