Smithwick Suspending Rattlin Rogue
Tried and True. The original suspending jerkbait! The Smithwick Suspending Rattlin Rogue can be found in any serious jerkbait fisherman's tackle box.
For best results with the Suspending Rogue - use short, snappy jerks of your rod tip. Also vary the length and speed of your jerks, pausing to let the Rogue suspend momentarily, this is the stop-and-suspend action that fish can’t resist. A slow rolling retrieve is also very effective - making your Rogue “wallow” along or just below the surface with a slow retrieve.
