Another variation of the spikes, or maggots if we have to call them that, is called a Mousie. Now, it's pretty obvious why they call them Mousies. You can see, here, they each have tails to them. You can see them wiggling around, here, a little bit and they move those tails. That can be very attractive to a feeding perch or smelt. So, these are called Mousies and for obvious reasons. We like to put these Mousies on the hook in the same way we put the spikes on the hook. But we want to line it up so that these tails will really wiggle and act as an attractant. So, let's take a Mousie, don't worry he won't squeak, and put him on the hook so that the tail is sticking out. Look at that tail move. We want to put a couple of different Mousies on here so that we can get plenty of action. There we go, we have two Mousies, we can even add a third. And now we've got a little Mousie housey. It's all ready to go, lots of action, lots of scent, something that the perch are really going to fight for.
