How to Fish Rooster Tails
I see a lot of reports on folks using Rooster Tails to catch trout. I'm heading to Howard Praraiee on Friday for some opening day trout fishing down there. Have gone before and we've always done the Powerbait thing, which has been occasionally successful, but can be pretty boring when it's not working so well.
Last night I went to fishermans supply and picked up a variety of smaller RoosterTails (mostly 1/6 oz), but not sure how to use them. Should I be casting these with no weight, or maybe trolling them with some split shot? Will be fishing off a boat, with no downrigger.
Also bringing wedding rings, macks/ford fender trolls, fly gear, froggy flat fish and the bass gear depending on the temperature (Rapalas, crayfish plugs etc.)
Suggestions for alternatives to staring at Powerbait all day?

“I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”
