The Gunki Boomer Chatterbaits come under the beady eye of Angler's Mail tackle editor Richard Howard. He's the No.1 products inspector, checking out loads of quality kit every week.

GUNKI’s Boomer Chatterbaits have been designed to imitate small reptiles. Coming with a jighead and a blade, they vibrate and flash when worked in the water, helping to attract predators.

I can visualise a lot going on in the water, with the small blade ‘kicking’ and ‘flashing’ when retrieved, while the silicone ‘skirt’ flutters enticingly behind.

They also come with big eyes on the jighead, which are always a target point for predators to home in on.

I reckon these are perfect for spring and summer, especially when worked in open water or amongst cover.

They look very useful for pike and perch, confirm the Gunki team, who had plenty of action while field-testing them, particularly when used in conjunction with a V2IB softbait on the hook.

The 10 g Boomer is armed with a Mustad size 4/0 hook, and the 21 g Bloomer a Mustad size 5/0 hook.

The ‘skirts’ are all attached with metal wire, to help withstand pike attacks. There are six colour combinations in the range.

Prices: £7.90-£8.90.
