Duo Realis Spinbait 80 - $12.99
Built to with two smooth-running props, the Duo Realis Spinbait 80 is perfect for light line finesse techniques, including the new Japanese technique of “spybaiting”. The technique of “spybaiting” (also referred to as the “silent capture”) requires light line, a long distance cast, and a sinking style bait that can be crawled back to the boat. It takes patience and refinement, but is rumored to be incredibly effective. The Duo Realis Spinbait 80 is ideal for “spybaiting” because the compact body casts incredibly far and provides a heavy rolling action, even on a slow retrieve. Built with an internal fixed ballast, the Duo Realis Spinbait 80 stays deeper for a longer period of time than a traditional propbait, and also sinks on the pause with a tight wobbling action. And if that wasn’t enough, the props add another element of attraction by producing a strong pulsing as they whiz through the water. Complete with two razor-sharp treble hooks, the Duo Realis Spinbait 80 is another example of how Duo Realis remains at the forefront of bass fishing.
Comments: WOW. Got my bait, spooled up some 6lb line on the little spinning rod, motored out to the spot, made two cats, then lost it 12' down in something. Lure retriever couldnt get it. Lame. Of course, I'm dumb and will buy another one. It looked to have a cool wobble but if I lose the next one so quickly, spybaiting will not be something in my arsenal.

Comments: Finally figured out how to use this bait with sucess. It took a few trips to the lake to try different retrieves and ways to fish the Spinbait. Now that I have confidence I have been connecting with big smallies on days when no one is catching anything. The day I figured it out, it actually out fished my Vision 110.

Comments: If Your New to Spybaiting as I was( Unheard Of !) Thought It's Just a PropBait Like a Develhorse Topwater. Think again Grasshopper LOL! Just Over 3 inches and weighs in at 3/8 OZ. On a Spinning Outfit that is 6 foot and Lite to UL Action Rod 6 to 8 ib test line. this Baby Minnow will cast a Mile. I feel a need In Clear water. then Count it down One foot Per sec and then Reel it In at the speed and Minnow would swim.. First time Out with One ( Natural Ayu ) with one of the first Cold Weather of the Fall ( OCT 19 , 2013 IN Missouri Almost First Frost That morning 35 F Degrees , Full Moon) In the Afternoon On one of the Ozark Streams Near me. ( Big Piney River) I caught and released 2 Bass . I was surprised to see 2 Largemouths come from No where and Go Nuts after this Lure. Being kinda shocked to even see a fish but see 2 going after it so I think I stop the Lure then Bang. A Hook Up of One and Landed and then pictured / let go .. I saw 2 I cast again half way in BANG ! Got the Other One about the same size. and the same thing happen landed and Let go.. I Tryed other places in the river but No Luck but I think there is a spring In that part of the river. It Just Looks Like a Minnow Swimming ..

Comments: These lures are absolutely insane, I use it for multiple situations and produce good fish most of the time... Over grass flats, suspended fish, and on boiling fish this thing is killer. I recommend using a super light line and drag, however I lost a donkey fishing 4lbs fluoro so I bumped it up to 6. When you think you are fishing this thing slow enough... Fish it slower!

Comments: This thing gets bit but as stated before must work it slow.
From: Louis: Green Bay
Comments: Everyone complaining about the hooks is probably using the wrong rod, this is a finesse technique and needs to be geared accordingly. I'm not saying you need to go buy a custom rod but it is very important to fish this bait on a soft rod or even parabolic rod, Duo's stock hooks are top notch. I have caught literally hundreds of fish on numerous spinbaits including fish over 5lbs. I personally use a NFC 7'6'' medium light rod that has a moderate fast action. It's like fishing a crankbait, if you want to do it right you need to match your gear to your presentation. Light rod, light drag, and light line and you won't be pulling hooks. I don't recall any of the hooks on one of my spinbaits being bent out of shape.
From: CP: USA
Comments: This thing is so boring to fish But it flat out catches fish , Seems the cast a mile and slow slow slower reel it in is the best way here for the most bites .It is a great bait , looks like the minnows that the bass are chasing . The hooks are small and sharp as a razor . they may bend but if they do then most likely you are using way to big of line .
From: Kevin: KY
Comments: Tried the lure this weekend at Darwendale dam. It gets the bites but I had problems with the hooks - They are just too soft and are easily bent straight. I landed a 4.3kg large mouth but had to be super careful on the retrieve. If the fish gets into any weed the hooks will bend
From: Colin: Harare Zimbabwe
Comments: Amazing lure. Excels in every situation. Two tips: reel it. In very, I mean very slooooowly. 2- change treble hooks. Big smallies bend them easily.
Comments: We throw deep jerkbaits for our suspend fish so I did an little experiment... Jerkbait, then Spinbait. I caught more keepers with the spinbait. I caught bigger fish after watching two videos and realized to slow down. I caught my biggest bass on spinbait and I caught more on it. My jerkbait nailed 2 real nice fish. Score this time out 6 to 2 Spinbait but I will say this slow way down. There were a couple of colors that were killer but that I am not saying. Tournament time!
From: Mike: AL
Comments: All I have to say is it catches good fish. If you know how to schooling bass and isolated fish, you are going to get them. It isn't a common lure. Not a jerkbait but will catch late summer suspended bass. Its not a Sierraminnow but catches those wary fish. Its not a topwater bait but will catch schooling fish that refuse topwater. I wonder if they will come out with another size?
From: RH: CA
Comments: Three of us in a boat, one throwing a proven jerkbait 9 ft down...no luck... One throwing a tube and a grub had a few fish.. I threw that Spinbait had 8 fish...on pressurred water. What was kick butt we did this 2 days in a row.. I don't think this bait replaces anything it just gives you another finesse angle. that we haven't been privy to. I personally like the build. The lure is refined. I have seen the other JDM screw baits and several of them.. Also this isn't the serierra minnow... it isn't the LC wander...the dude that mentioned that obviously hasn't studied the actions. Smart bait by a JDM company.
From: Dan: Great Lakes
Comments: Another way to rig this way is to get this Megabass Okashira Jig Head Screw Head Flashing Blade then just use a fluke at the end kinda like jackall i-motion rig. started the roots back in japan my boy told me before they made hard bait version
Comments: Dude this kills me. This tiny lure has incrediable detail. Its sick. I give props where props are due. this thing has insane action. I know they were talking about clear water finesse but I am banging a ton of fish in the shallows in the night. This company thought out of the box. they are definately innovative.
From: T: CA
Comments: Just another variation of I-Motion that never caught on here. Sure, there have been a few prop sinkers like this one but it's not going to be earth shattering like Duo claims. So once everyone starts to throw this, what's next? Propless silent version? Did everyone forget about the Jackall Sierra and LC Wander?
From: Rob: NJ
Comments: Spybaiting... I.E goofball sink and retrieve. I have been throwing other JDM sinking propbaits for a while now after seeing one on a trip abroad. I can't get bit. A few small fish on pressured water, but that's it. These baits aren't really made for a jerkbait style retrieve, so unless you are just counting them down and reeling them back... you have a bait you will never use. Stick to 70 to 115 sized quality suspending jerkbaits in the same situation (Down to 15 feet) and you will have a better bag. Nothing about the retrieve triggers fish... the bait looks "vulnerable" but that's it.
From: Joe: Upstate, NY, USA.
Comments: I want this bait but just want to say Duo Realis= absolutely TOP QUALITY lures...quality like Megabass and Jackall and better than Lucky Craft. One of my favorite "new" companies to hit TW/US market from the JDM.
From: Tanner: S.E. MA
Comments: I heard about spybaiting about 4 months ago, researched it and have been applying it in high pressure situations on my local lakes. Let me tell you, it's gonna change the finnesse fishing world. 30 plus fish days in my lakes is pretty good on a beautiful day. And I had 30+ fish days in 50 degree water temps back in march. I drilled a hole in a crawfish colored shad rap so it would sink. I can't wait to get some of these and use a bait actually designed for the technique. 6lb flouro is a must. I sometimes ran as low as 4lb if the water was really clear. It seems extreme but it's a must. Research the technique and master it. You'll need it! Trust me!
