MSRP ($):

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.

Duo Realis Spinbait 80

The Duo Realis Spinbait 80 is put out as a spybait. The spybaiting technique that has been brought over from Japan. It is a finesse technique and although I am far from a finesse fisherman, this is a finesse technique I can get behind and use. I have used it several times throughout the summer and have had decent luck with the technique. While it is recommended to use a spinning reel, a medium powered rod, and 4 to 8 pound fluorocarbon line, I have used it with my baitcasting gear and light fluoro line and it works just fine for me.

The idea behind this technique is to make a long cast and count the bait down to the strike zone or let it hit the bottom if that is where the fish are holding. The bait "shimmies" while it is sinking and you will often get hits on the fall. When you retrieve the lure slowly (that is the hard part for me) back to the kayak. The key here is a slow retrieve which can be frustrating to some anglers. As the lure comes back to the yak, the props spin and the bait has a nice wiggle.

I am typically a power fisherman, but I have discovered this technique and there are times where it flat out works. If you can handle the frustration of super slow retrieves, gives this spinbait a try.
