Ideal for trout, perch, bass, crappie, stripers and more
Developed in the l950's by Howard Worden, the Rooster Tail is one of the most productive lures ever invented. The action of the spinning blade in combination with the colorful, pulsating hackle tail makes the Rooster Tail irresistible to any gamefish. It's a lure that consistently catches fish. Fishermen across North America and abroad are using Rooster Tails successfully for trout, bass, perch, crappie, stripers, pike, steelhead, salmon and other gamefish.

Roostertails always seem to be the old standby for me. If I haven't had any luck, I can usually tie one on and get the fishes' attention. Also, with so many colors and sizes to choose from, anything from blugill to muskie will bite on one in different water conditions. Either chartreuse or black is my favorite color. Best buy in the freshwater fishing world.

Every year I buy at least 2 of the 1/16 rooster tails usually the white and grayish colors...
I have cought bass,bluegills and crappies.
This was the first lure that ever worked for me.
I remember when i was young and fished my hometown pond with my friends i was using this lure and I was catchin bass like crazy..
My friends and I were freaked out because i mainly fished for catfish and i never fished with lures before.
so needless to say all my friends and i still use rooster tails to this day.
I usually fish around trees in the water or just cast it along the bank.

This lure right here will definantly get you any type of fish any time of the year. Ive used this in ponds, rivers, and streams to catch bass, bream, and trout. It is a great lure. I like it in the smaller sizes for bream and trout and the larger sizes for bass. When your havin any trouble just go to the rooster tail.

Usually a minnow-type color(like a shad for instance) or something very bright or chartreuse, but on rainy days when the sun isn't always visible, you should use a very shiny or flashy color to attract the fish when thy can't see dull or dark colors.
well best advice i can give u for bass is check the water visisbilty first, then the sky. if its a clear day and the waters clear day use something silver and blackish brown. if its cloudy and clear, or the waters tainted/ dirty, use the gold and chartreuse or gold and white. for bass also i use anywhere from 1/6 ounce to 1/4. my best color would be the chartreuse 1/4 ounce mylar. good luck
Slow to medium. Are you fishing in lakes or rivers? I always had trouble keeping the blades spinning even in current. Try using any with gold blades or go buy panther martin fly spinner no.2 gold/orange.
