I've seen it done for pike. Old timers here swear by them. Some times they tip them with a minnow.

I have never tried jigging devles. I think they might have tangle problems and be a little on the aggressive side for ice fishing, but that might be good for pike sometimes.
In open water, devles are the best spoon around. One of the top five best lures of all time in my opinion too. All trout from brookies, rainbows, browns, cutts, lakers, they all will crush an eratically retrieved daredevle. I found that mostly just reeling slow and steady, then slowing for a second and then suddently reeling fast a crank or two gives a daredevle a wonderful action in addition to that hypnotic wobble wobble. This will triple your strikes.
Bass, pike, walleye, and panfish love them too. They cast a mile, have plenty of different sizes and colors. Only thing is the hooks they come with are too dull and need replaced with a premium needle treble. Truly, one of the deadliest lures around for all fish.

I never used them thru the ice, but caught some nice rainbows on the old red & whites in open water.

I have used Len Thompson spoons(similar to DareDevil-but better,in my opinion) for pike through the ice,especially in late season. Use an aggressive jigging technique(about 1.5-2 ft.lift/fall) keeping the line tight at all times with a  hesitation at the bottom. Pike will usually hit on the fall(reason for keeping line tight) or on the hesitation.Red/white or silver are good choices. If you have tulibee they will hit on these also.

one of my coworkers swears by this technique he fishes different waters than i but i gave it a try last year to no avail.  He said he would drill his holes for tip ups and then drill some extra holes nearby and when the fishing got slow hed drop a daredevil, kastmaster or sweedish pimple down the hole next to his tip ups and jig very aggressively and move to the next hole he claimed that the aggresisve jigging of these flashy lures would attract pike from further away to investigate and would eventually hit his tip ups.  He also will jig with them in the shack for pike but he said he normally uses this technique more or less to attract fish to the area where his tip ups are.  Like i said though i tried it and didnt really notice any change in the bite on my tip ups and i never caught a pike on the dare devils jigging but he swears by it.
give a man a fish and feed him for a day teach a man to fish and his wife will hate you for the rest of her life

We use a red and white spoon with the hook removed, for a decoy when spearing and personally, I think it is one of the best decoys.  We dont really jig it much, but just spin the line so the spoon spins.  Another idea may be to remove the bottom hook and put a short drop line on it with a minnow.

i wonder if you drilled a hole in the the edge and hooked it that way if it would have some sort of vertical presentation
