Mousies - Tub of 500
Mousies (rat tail maggots) make dynamite bait for trout, small bass, small channel catfish, whitefish and panfish such as perch, crappie and bluegill. Some days, panfish will hit nothing else. Mousies are commonly used for ice fishing or in open water. Keep them fresh and lively by preventing them from freezing and change your bait frequently. Tobacco tins kept in an inside pocket are popular and effective. Mousie use is not limited to winter fishing. Keep fish interested during the open water season by using mousies effectively. Especially after a weather front, or when heavily pressured, larger panfish will often respond to these tasty morsels when they will not respond to worms or minnows.
