    Re: Berkley® PowerBait® Floating Mouse Tails

    Rig them so the tail points up as it floats, the slow waiving action seems to be the ticket......Jetspray

    I just picked up a couple bags of these for Camanche tomorrow along with some size 8 hooks. What do you think might b the best way to rig them?

    here it is broken down prices are from bassproshops.com

    Power Worms are about $4.19 10pk
    Power Worms are about $4.19 10pk
    Power Eggs are about $4.19 20pk
    Sub Total = $12.57
    Tax = $1.23
    Total = $13.80

    Berkely Floating Mouse Tails: $3.99 10pk
    Berkely Floating Mouse Tails: $3.99 10pk
    Sub Total = $7.98
    Tax = $0.78
    Total = $8.76

    its pretty simple if you break it down but as said before you cant get the same variety with mouse tails as you cam with p/w & p/e

    Thing is that my order from Bass Pro Shops had to be cancelled due to the fact that they are only selling most of the colors in the store and not stocking them online. So I ordered them from Berkley instead today.......Jetspray

    That is correct about thier vision, but their environment includes things that are on the bottom that they feed on like chubs, tadpoles, worms, fingerling type fishes/shrimp/snails and such. That is why they also bottom feed......Jetspray

    most trout scan the bottom for movement

    Re: Berkley® PowerBait® Floating Mouse Tails

    I would think the action alone would draw fish in, but the famous berkley scents are a big help as most trout scan the bottom for movement then strike.......Jetspray
