Rated 5 out of 5 by bassharrier Rooster Tail I like these for river smallmouth, but I also have them along for lake fishing too. One day I wasn't doing too well in my favorite lake and I tied one of these on before calling it quits for the day. Beleive it or not, within forty five minutes I had the biggest stringer of bass in my life. An 8lber, 7.5, 6.2, 5.5, and 4.9. I would have been smokin' at the classic. Moral of story, Don't underestimate the power of small lures. January 30, 2007
Rated 5 out of 5 by Esox fan Catches Everything! I swear it So many of you scoff when those of who use the rooster tail tie one on our line and cast it out into the water, but let me set the record straight on this, this little devil catches everything in the lake. I have personally caught, Large and Small mouth Bass, Crappie, Bluegills, Trout, Northern Pike, Bullheads, Perch, and my buddy Bill even caught a 15 pound Muskie on one. If you are looking to add a new weapon in your arsenal, buy some of these babies. My favorite is yellow, but I also favor black and even pink. Trust me, you can't go wrong on this one. May 29, 2006

Rated 4 out of 5 by SCHROEDER great purchase i love these lures i have caught hundreds of trout and many many other fish as well. i only things i do not like about the lures is the paint gets beat off of fast, and the wire bends alot and you half to straighten it out often but i dont expect them to last for ever for only costing $3. but they will catch fish like crazy for sure. done buy the off brands i have tried them and have nothing but problems with the blades not turning so stick to the original rooster tails April 8, 2013

A:Try blues and greens. These colors on brass metals are often good in clear water on sunny days. Move quickly through the water as rainbows are wired for speed!
A: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.
Details:What is the best size for this?
A:Blue, brown, black in 1/8th fir summer
A:I always use it in white. I have used other colors but white has always outperformed anything else that i tried.
A:firetiger in late sping kills but beware also other fish will bite but kills bass
A:Green or yellow in all seasons. I would have to say an one-eight ounce lure
A: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.
A:cast it out then reel it in easy bait for alot of fish

A:Tie it on, cast out, then work the lure different ways. Figure out what the fish like best and use that one. I like just plain reeling, or let it drop and then reel.

A:tie it on, cast, and retrieve fast or slow.
A: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.

A:Steadily retrieve it and pause it a few times so it stops and sinks in the water. Really depends how deep the stream is that you are fishing.
A: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!

A:Smooth steady retrieve
A:I cast this lure out and retrieve sometimes slowly and sometimes fast,pending on conditions.
A:Depends on where you are fishing. Seems like the brown (or grasshopper) is what the trout like that have been raised in the hatcheries..
A: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.

A:Bass & Trout Nickel and black
A:The skunk color is by far the best in my area.

A: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).
