Duo Realis Minnow 80SP, a tiny jerkbait.
It does all things jerkbait, but on a smaller scale, which ought to get you more bites.
To finesse bites on a tough postspawn day. Or, you can use it in the fall as the water cools.
You’re going to want to use light, light spinning tackle. No more than 6-pound-test line for sure, but 4-pound might be best. This is now backreeling territory, unless you have the smoothest of drags. Even then you don’t want the rod’s eyelets putting unnecessary friction on the thin line.
The attention to detail and the color schemes. Each bait in Duo’s Realis line is based off of a hand carving made by Mr. Adachi, Duo’s master craftsman. Adachi fine-tunes each design to make the most realistic swimming action possible, then adds on a lifelike paint job.
Each Duo Realis bait is $19.99, be it the Minnow (jerkbait), lipless crankbait, topwater walking bait or the other cranks.
