Smithwick Suspending Rattlin' Rogue
These lures are one of my favorite minnow type lures. They are made well and they have great action in the water. Many of them also come with Xcalibur TX3 hooks on them so you don't have to switch the hooks for something better.

Rogues are my go to jerkbait
These jerkbaits put fish in the boat! And, there's no wrong way to fish'em.

I have fished the Smithwick Rogue, ever since I saw a guy releasing a 10lb. Largemouth Bass at Lake of the Ozarks at Coffman Ramp. I asked him what he caught it on, he told me, a "Smithwick Rogue. I said "OK", (like I knew what he was talking about). I didn't, but I found out shortly after that. I have caught fish year round on this bait, I love it, especially when the 12" to 17" Crappie slam it while fishing for Bass. I've caught nice Walleye on it to. Beats paying for the extra price of a Pointer etc.

You Gotta Have One!
I am a walleye hunter...I use this crankbait exclusively at night during a new moon phase. I scout out weed bed flats and make sure these weed beds are holding perch and I just silently troll these "suspending" crankbaits and wait for the action to start. The hooks are "sticky sharp" and the plastic lip is pretty durable. I use the darker color patterns. A slashing then suspending troll pattern works best for me. Get two because when you loose that first one, you'll be happy to know that you have a back up!
