Smithwick Rogues


Recommended Posts

Smithwick Top 20 Rogue is an outstanding trolling bait for times you need to go deep.

The vintage Smithwick with lead wire wrapped around the middle treble so it would suspend was THE original jerk bait. Somewhere there are pictures of great stringers taken on it.

The Rogue still works as long as you weight it so that it suspends in a fairly level attitude.  Most anglers today aren't attracted to it because it doesn't look as realistic as the high dollar jerkbaits with all kinds of realistic details and color patterns.  But I don't really think the fish care much.
