Like good music and good art, the Devil's Horse® reputation is timeless and enduring. It's a classic, prop-equipped, wooden lure with a history of fish-catching enjoyment for millions of fishermen. The sleek buoyancy of wood combined with the balanced, churning propellers duplicates a unique action that surface-feeding fish have found irresistible.
Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 70 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Tenn Shad Killer Have had bass knock this thing half a foot out of the water trying to get at it. You can work it a million ways, just keep at it till you find that right formula. Only complaint is that I hate the hooks. They are slightly curved inward making it a chore to unhook a fish especially when you will hook them with at least 2 of the 3 trebles. May help with the catch rate so I shouldn't complain too much, so I still gave it five stars. May 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Old School Bait This is an old school bait that you don't hear much about but still catches fish, easy to work and fun to fish November 3, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by problem after about 2 pulls the line gets wraped up in the front prop. October 10, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by good overall lure good lure for bass and pike, works best when cloudy and calm and if you are using it for bass put a soft plastic worm on the back hook. June 24, 2013

A: 
Same problem with braid but I live with it, flouro sinks which is bad. You can use mono but have to size up so much it outweighs benefit. Or tie on a flouro leader to your braid.

A: 
Almost flat across,but bent back just a little.Sometimes you have to twist the props slightly.Action is important.After your cast wait 10 seconds then gently jerk the bait moving about 6" or so.Keep repeating this,you will catch fish.

A: 
Props on baits are rotated for speed which increases water movement and therefore
noise. Continue the pitch or twist (L or R)
to increase speed. Flattening blades will
also slow prop rotation and reduce noise.
This will also increase speed of bait travel
which moves the bait out of the strike zone
sooner.

A: 
the devils horse lure's are still in production so their value is probably the same as the existing price. smithwick also made other surface lure's like the KING SNIPE and BUCK N BAWL. if you have any of these tucked away especially the king snipe, their worth $$$ to any collector.

I have found that darker colors work better, but I usually only fish in dark/murky water. I get a alot of hits within 2 seconds of the lure falling on the water, so I don't think they even care about color.

No, the only thing that rolls or spins is the propellers (one on each end). They just move on their own and do not effect the line.

No, it does not roll in the water. The hooks on it.s belly keep it up right. just use short jerks and pause on retreve. keep the line slack reeled in, and be ready.

No. The lure doesn't roll or spin during your retrieve. The only way to get line twist is if the line gets tangled around the propellers on the cast.

are you talking about the peacock bass in florida or in so. america? if florida --yes, if so. america, the lure's and hook's are too small for the big boy's. the 'amazon ripper' is what you want for so. america----any lure with a hook on it can catch a fish. you improve your odd's of landing the big one's with the larger lure's that tear-up the surface. i've caught and landed 20# plus steelhead on # 8 fly's so go figure---

AS AN AVID BASS FISHERMAN I RECENTLY DISCOVERED THE FEILD OF CREATING MY OWN LURE COLORS. JUST BUY YOUR FAVORITE LURES IN WHITE OR THE MOST NUETRAL COLOR THEY OFFER AND PAINT IT WHATEVER COLOR YOU WANT. YOU CAN USE A PIECE OF SCREEN FROM A WINDOW TO ADD DIFFERENT LOOKS AND DEPTH BUT THE SENSE OF PRIDE YOU GET FROM CATCHING A FISH ON A LURE COLOR THAT YOU CREATED IS JUST AWESOME. YOU CAN ALSO BUY DIFFERENT COLOR EYES. HOP E THIS BUT USHOULD GIVE IT A TRY ANYWAY. GOOD LUCK
