Developed in the 1950's by Howard Worden, the Worden's® 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. Rooster Tail is 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.
Worden's Original Rooster Tail - 1/8 oz.
The go to lure
I have been fishing this lure for 14 years. I have all my friends fishing them as well. I fish about twice a week and I have caught every type of fish on it. I always say when in doubt go to the rooster tail. and if no fish hit it there are no fish in the water. I perfer the red with silver color and I buy them by the handful. You never know what is going to hit it so have extras because the big fish will twist them all up.

best in-line spinner
This is the best lure for the beggining angler. It always spins and is extremely easy to use. It is also very effective. The 1/8 oz. size is very versatile for bank fishing on ponds. You can even fish the smaller sizes in very small creeks and streams for little minnow-sized chub. And I mean creeks so small that you can jump across that aren't even big enough to hold bluegill. White w/silver blade is my favorite color. Any color that either matches the available food or simply catches there attention will work.

i bought a few of these because my uncle told me they worked like magic on bluegill. he was right! i was fishing off a dock and i could just lower in the water without even casting and they would bite it. i caught some trophy gills off that thing!

The very best color I've used in 40 years of trout fishing has to be the Yellow Coachdog. Size 1/8 for small streams and lakes, 1/6 for larger waters. Anything larger seems to diminish effectiveness of the lure.
if your using joe's flies and you should be. we've used the brass color spinner with any of the white or colored lures the green was a good color. you really have to have one of each color and keep trying different lures till you find one they like.
Bass generally can feed by sight as most predatory game fish do. As such, its very important that you "match-the-hatch". That means matching the colors and patterns to the predominat prey of the fish in the body of water that you are targeting. Also, keep in mind that more neutral colors (whites, browns, blacks, and drab greens) tend to do well in clearer water while bright colors such as reds, yellows, oranges, and chartruse, do well in stained and murky waters.
cast out and reel it in as slow as you possibly can while still feeling the blade to spin. A quick jerk as soon as it hits the water can start the blade spinning. The slower you retrieve, the better your chance of hooking up.
Really any way you want, you want to keep the spinner blade moving though.
Cast it out and: -Reel it in slow-fast. -Let it sink for a second up to a minute and reel it in. The faster you go the quicker it will come up to the surface, the slower the slower it will come up. -Reel and give your rod a jerk every now and then. -Troll it behind the boat.
Florida fresh water use I would just cast and retrieve like any other spinner bait but use your fish sense and reel slow or fast and sometimes let it sink then reel in. I also have jigged in deep water. Large silver Rooster Tails I actually used in salt water at my cousins place near St James City and caught a few!
I'm prejudiced and use the Salmon Fly Rooster Tail the most but depending on what time of year and the hatch that is out you can gauge the color by that. I used to have very good luck with the Rainbow Rooster but it has not been the same for a long time now but your area may be different. Dark Green with a hatch design and gold highlights has been a winner for me too. I don't know the proper names.
it depends mainly on water clarity - natural colors, like white & silver, are better in clear water, bright gaudy colors, like chartreuse, are better in dingy water. Gold is best in tea-colored water(called 'tannin stained' water).
