Worden's® Original Rooster Tail® - 1/6 oz.
I use the tiny 1/6 oz rooster tail in white and I am thrilled with its performance.
I have pulled in a pretty staggering number of fish using this lure. Even stubborn, slow biting ponds eventually seem to relent and give it some play after a while. It works in clear or stained water and in sunny or overcast conditions.
Even on this tiny lure, I have managed to attract and land a fairly nice sized crappie, an 18" bass, and a 12" bass, as well as countless bluegill.
I have had the best luck casting it out, giving a count off, and then slowly reeling it in once it has dropped to the depth that I want to target.
If I had one lure to use in a survival situation, this would be it. It pulls in many different species of fish in many different conditions, casts well, has a simple and robust construction, and just plain works well.

If I could only take I lure with me into Algonquin park this would be it. Just wish they could make the steel wire a little tougher. Lure is Usually no more good after 5 lb Speckle does her job. Who cares though.

I've been using Rooster Tails exclusively for many years. From Northern's to large crappie and everything in between, they're fantastic. For me, what makes fishing this spinner bait so much fun, is that you don't know what you'll reel in next........oh and they're a must have for trout.

Nothing special, but do as expected.
I have used Rooster Tails for a long time. These did as I would expect. Not much to praise. Not much to criticize. The price would be the only negative. It wasn't the best I could find, but I was already making a purchase so I grabbed these while ordering.
