Rated 5 out of 5 by kipster22 Smokin Rooster These soft baits are the best freshwater I have ever used. The action is great and entices big strikes. It's a shame you have taken them off the shelves in Orlando, but I can always purchase them here! Thanks February 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by docpen great bait a sure bait to use in stumps hard cover or fust open water around shore line. Got to have them in my tackle box. December 27, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by NoCam22 Wild Action I purchased a pack after viewing the reviews. I set out for the day and went through half of the pack due to durability. Two were lost on the first two caught. Needs to be made of stronger material. Other than that, this lure is great and attracts fish better than any other lure I've tried. November 3, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by tilly21 good find I found one of these along the bank of a lake I fish. Thought it looked pretty cool so I rigged it. Second cast I bailed a fish. Awesome action and it sinks nicely.I caught 4 more fish before the bait was destroyed. I searched like mad online to figure out what this was I had found.....now I have 10 packs in different colors and plan on getting more September 30, 2012

Details:I am a budget spender so I need to get the best I can get for my money.(rigging recommendations would be nice too)
A:there are by far cheaper baits out there and like you I watch what I spend on baits and tackle and I can tell you this - the first time I used this I caught a bass - definately worth it - also Texas Rigged with or without a weight will just do just fine
A:i would say Green Pumpkin rigged on the perfect worm hook
A:Seeing how you are a budget spender I can understand the you would want to get the best you can for your money. First you need to answers the questions in regards to where are you going to fish. How clear is the water is it clear, muddy, or some where in the middle?
If the water is clear you need to use more natural looking baits such as watermelon seed, green pumpkin, black, laminate, watermelon pearl, red shad green flake, red shad, bumblebee swirl, dark grasshopper, dark watermelon, and ultimate craw. If the water is some where in the middle of clear and muddy then these colors will work grate. Black neon, watermelon red, Ozark smoke, smoke red pepper, Cajun neon, Cooter brown. I have to say that green pumpkin neon works grate in the partly muddy water. If the water is really muddy colors like bubblegum lemon swirl, crawdad, and Virgo blue will work
A:no it is far to long for a jig presentation
A:I use the rage tail alot. Havent tried the rooster as a trailer, I fish it by itself.

A:I have used the smoking rooster for any number of things, including a trailer for my swim jigs. My preference is to use it keel weighted, and swim it along, but it worked very well on swim jigs as well.
A:I use a wid gap xps either 3/0 or 4/0. I sometimes use a weight and sometimes I dont. If you dont want a quick fall fish it without a weight.
A:I use size 5 wide gap hook for the regualar bush hog with a 1/2 oz tungstun weight. It penetrates the cover very well. If the cover is really thick I peg the weight and flip it hog high so it drops stright down through the cover.
