Mike Poke of Siler City, North Carolina, is a regular contributor to the Finesse News Network. After he examined many of the baits that were introduced at the 2013 International Convention of Allied Sportfishing Trades show in Las Vegas on July 9-12, he concluded that DUO International's 3 1/8-inch Realis SpinBait 80 was the most interesting new bait in his eyes.

Poe said: "In some ways it looks like the classic Bagley Lures' BangOLure Spin Tail Jerkbait, but the DUO SpinBait 80 bait has a spinner at its tail and head. What's more, it rattles and is weighted. The weights allow it to sink rapidly.

"One of the retrieves that Japanese anglers employ with it is called the 'spybaiting: technique of silent capture.' I watched a video about this retrieve, and the Japanese angler who was featured in the video said that six-pound-test line was too heavy. By using extremely light line and a spinning rod, he executed extremely long casts. When the lure hit the water, he allowed the lure to plummet to the proper depth by counting its fall rate per second. He began his retrieve when the lure is about six inches above the bottom. His retrieve was a slow Charlie Brewer do-nothing-style retrieve.


"It was fascinating video to watch. Now I wish I had some water clear enough in North Carolina to try the SpinBait 80, but we don't. But I will try the spybaiting retrieve with my Midwest finesse and other baits."


The folks art DUO International describe the SpinBait 80 as a sinking, double propeller bait that has the body of a jerkbait. Because it is a heavy, anglers can explore depths with it that they cannot reach with a standard jerkbait, and the two propellers add an alluring dimension that jerkbaits do not possess.

DUO recommends that anglers "drop the bait in the water and count as the lure sinks. This will give anglers a better idea of how fast the bait sinks, so when they begin casting, they will have a better understanding of the depths they are fishing."

It is availabe in 12 colors: Prism Clown, Prism Gill, Komochi Wakasagi,Green Oikawa, Natural Ayu, Natural Wakasagi,Half Mirror Black Gold, Lucid Ayu, Lucid Wakasagi, Sexy Pink, Florida Crush, and Chart Ghost. It retails for $13.99.
