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.

Used this spinner bait on 2 trips to Red River New Mexico. Tried several different colors, but had the best luck on this color.

I've had all my luck with the Pink Flo. in my area. For being as small as it is these cast pretty well. (when matched with the right gear). The blade has a nice spin to it and doesn't get hung up or stick, also really reflects through the water like it should. It also calls fish out when your other baits wont. I'll always have at least 1 in my tackle box.

Have been using the 1/16 ounce roostertails for rainbow trout here in the Texas Hill Country for several years now and have had great success with them. These little lures also work great for white bass,crappie, perch and even catch largemouth bass on occasion. Give them a try, you won't be disappointed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by FishCentralOhio Bring back Gray Minnow!
These are great lures, my only problem is that around 5 or 6 years ago they stopped making the color that really caught fish around central Ohio. It was called Gray Minnow.
The Minnow color now is literally identical to White, and does not catch fish the way Gray Minnow does. I found this out when I ordered 6 rooster tails in this new color thinking it was the same thing. It's not.
The only good thing is that I can go buy a can of gray spray paint and re-color them, but honestly I have no idea why they would change the color on this. Now they have two identical lures and anyone who wanted the old color can't find it.
Overall these lures are fantastic when you get the color that works in your area, but they need to bring back Gray Minnow for us central Ohio guys.

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.
