Smithwick Devil's Horse
frog spot devil's horse
I throw my 3/8 oz frog spotted devils horse nearly every day. It is a most rewarding therapy. I bought my first one in 1973 and as needed since.
I have fished for 50 years, primarily South Florida. I,of course have tried every conceivable lure, worm, spinner bait,etc. I have caught two bass on the plug at the same time twice this year. I have caught bass on 21 consecutive casts once and many times over ten. Also, I squash the barbs off of the hooks to make for an easy and safe release.
I do, however, modify the little critter. I cock the eye a little to the right and bend the front propellar to work backwards.
I have caught trout in New Hampshire, sea trout, snook and red fish on the flats. And of course, found it to be a large mouth bass slayer. Buy one and enjoy a heartpounding experience when an eight pound largemouth explodes the water's surface.

Devil's horse can do it.
The Smithwick Devils Horse is a lure that
just seems to draw the Bass to it. It runs
true accross the water and the propellers
bubble and churn up the water making enough noise to attrach the fish. I like to
run it about 2 feet out from lilly pads or trees
and then let it set for 10 seconds I never miss getting a hit with it.

Great Bass Lure!
This lure works great in the morning, and in the late evening. It works at this time because they are the primary feeding times for bass. The propelors on the lure add a whole lot. This lure is very well worth a try. My Uncle cught these fish in the picture at the same time! The one on the left was 8 pounds!!!

Just picked up another one of these because it was so special last year. Threw a devils horse to 2 feet of water, half way back I saw a big bass following it. I stopped it and the props stopped. Paused and popped it one more time. She attacked it. 8.6# personal best. Figured I better get a backup.....
