White Bass Anglers' Gear Guide: Yakima Bait Company's 1/4-ounce Vibric Rooster Tail

White Bass Anglers' Gear Guide: Yakima Bait Company's 1/4-ounce Vibric Rooster Tail

 Across the great white bass triangle that stretches from Milford Lake, Kansas, to Grand Lake, Oklahoma, and to the Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri, scores of anglers are in the midst or soon will be in the midst of pursuing white bass on a variety of wind-blown points and shorelines.  It is a piscatorial phenomenon that occurs every fall in these parts.

Yakima Bait Company has introduced a new color combination for its 1/4-ounce  Vibric  Rooster Tail that should catch the fancy of  white bass anglers and their quarry this fall.  The color is called Clyde, which was named after Clyde "The Guide" Holscher of Topeka, Kansas.

Holscher is a multispecies guide, who spends many September through early December days guiding an array of anglers who hope to tangle with more than 100 white bass on each outing.  On many of those outings,  Holscher and his clients spend hours on end wielding 1/4-ounce Vibric Rooster Tails.

The 1/4-ounce  Clyde-hue Vibric Rooster Tail sports a No.8 treble hook that is dressed with white hackle and enhanced with strands of silver tinsel. Its teardrop body is white. The spinner blade is chartreuse


For many years,  chartruese lures, white lures and silver ones have inveigled untold numbers of white bass for Holscher and scores of other talented and ardent anglers.  To the delight of Holscher, Yakima has combined these three hues on one of his favorite white bass baits.


According to Holscher, the Vibric's offset teardrop body and direct spinner blade-to-shaft rotation creates an unique and alluring vibration, and it doesn't twist anglers' lines as much as other straight-line spinnerbaits . What's more, it can be retrieved at a slower pace and is more snag-free than the original Rooster Tail and similar spinnerbaits.

Holscher says that some of his clients who are new to casting and retrieving a straight-line spinnerbait on wind-blown points and shorelines prefer the 1/16- and 1/8-ounce Vibric models, but veteran anglers normally opt for the 1/4-ouncer.

At this moment, the Clyde hue is not an easy one for anglers to find, but they are stocked at several retailers, such as Rogers Sporting Goods (rogerssportinggoods.com)  in Liberty, Missouri, Bass Pro Shops and Cabela's.  The retail price ranges from $2.99 to $3.69.
