Worden's Original Rooster Tail - 1/16 oz.
Rooster tail 1/16 os
Rooster tails are a great spinner for ultralight fishing. I have caugth shellcraker, redbreast, bluegill, white bass, spotted bass, largemouth bass, and even a channel catfish or two while fishing the Cape fear River in North Carolina. In mountain streams I have caught rock bass, smallmouth bass, and rainbow trout. One of the things that make rooster tails so successful is the fact that the spinner blade will turn at extremely slow retrieve. There are also a wide variety of colors and sizes available.

this spinner is great! i use this primarily for trout, but sometimes for smallmouth bass. I live by many trout streams and creeks and this works great for deeper holes and shallow water alike. Works best in deeper holes though. AMAZING for ponds. My pastor has a trout pond and i consistenly take 14-21 inch trout in there. I even latched on to a 24 incher in a deep pool in his stream! but, it broke off. Overall, GREAT for TROUT! (especially rainbows, not for paliminos though!)

Best Inline Out There
I hit the creek with my dad today with some brand new Rostertail spinners, and we had a blast. I caught some suckers, rock bass, sunfish, and smallmouth on color 01. My dad was using color 20, and he caught mulitple trout over 12 inches, plus largemouth, smallmouth, and rock bass. Not to mention redbellied sunfish. They are durable, come equiped with sharp hooks, and the skirt draws bites from weary fish. These spinners are THE BEST and color 20 is the best of the best.

I've always fished and enjoyed using Rooster Tails for trout - but I must say, that since I've switched over to Panther Martin & Mepps XDs, they've simply produced better. I still do like the way even the smallest Rooster Tails casts, but on the whole, I think I've moved away from this lure. I'll always keep some on hand, but no longer my #1 choice. I just think the other inline spinners, even a dressed Mepps Agila, may be a better option.
