Just went to sporting goods store and noticed a large display of Rooster Tail spinners. In my 50 years on the planet, I've never caught a fish on one. Has anyone? Mepps, panther martin, blue fox...yes. Zilch on a rooster tail.

Someone must be buying them, because they still make them.

Use them a lot in the limestone slab creeks here. Most anything will hit them

As a kid it was my go-to for a spinner…caught a 15 1/2 lb. Steelhead the winter of 1975….Hula poppers, pearl finish wobblerites and black rooster tails had my fishing needs covered…

Yep. Used them quite a bit in stock tanks and creeks when I was a kid. Caught lots of perch, Bass, crappie, And even the occasional channel cat on them.

Also used the Mepps spinners quite a bit back then too.
And the old Johnson Weedless Silver Spoon too.

Yellow shyster with yellow tail and silver blade works good on bass i a lot of less than real clear Texas creeks.

White on white bass on lakes.

I once laid down a decent rooster tail in the bed that I believed was just a benign fart...Wife wasn’t amused by my Shart.

Sorry for not posting this under Slummy’s thread on taking a dump w/o a shirt on. I was shirtless at the time.

Hula Poppers on bass? What color. I used frog and yellow skirt.

I remember catching white bass on them in the local lakes casting them from the shoreline.
