Figured I had to eventually get a reply from someone other than myself :lol: While the bait overall is intended to be fished like a blade bait, there is a video that shows one of the pro staff dropshotting it, I've started it at the rigging section though (do mind this is entirely in Japanese and I ...
One more update: In the newest Duo catalog, the Nomase Gill is in it, with a release in August of this year. However, these were released in Japan in November, and I have my hands on a couple that I got from eBay. I intend on fishing them for bass and walleye once things warm up, and the seasons all...
Just as an update for anybody interested, here are the colors it will be released in (in Japan anyways, no idea what colors may be available here): https://backlashjapan.co/2018/09/05/duo-nomase-gill/ I personally like the bluegill/sunfish colors, but of course all the local waterbodies here are ver...
While perusing Facebook yesterday, I came across a post from Duo which piqued my interest. There was a video of a new bait coming out that night, and after constantly checking YouTube all of yesterday and a bit of this morning, the video was posted. https://youtu.be/mDHfiDnHGIk And with further sear...
Big Bite Baits 4" Swimming Jerk Minnows work nicely, I've caught smallies, largies, pike, drum, and lake trout (the only two I've ever caught ice fishing) on them either on a jighead or as a chatterbait trailer (more for largies and pike).

I'm pretty sure the antenna material is peacock herl in case you ever wanted to fix broken/missing antennae (assuming it can be fixed). It's a good looking crank regardless
Crappie tubes are my go to for the most part unless I'm targetting really small stuff. A crappie tube on a 1/48oz jighead fished through shallow weeds can be absolutely lethal for crappie, otherwise I'm using a 1/16 or 1/8oz. I do like small swimbaits and spoons though especially when it's targettin...
Jointed Rapalas, Shad Raps, Tail Dancers, and any of the lipless cranks would likely work. I've had success jigging Rattlin' Raps for lakers, as well as using a yo-yo retrieve when they are "shallow" in the spring (in 10-20').
Jerkbaits are my top choice for post spawn smallies. Gear doesn't matter too much, for 3-4" jerkbaits I use a M spinning with 8lb mono and fish them about as fast as I can. 4-8' flats with some rocks/gravel and some weeds is about perfect, points and drops are also good areas to try.

Albino Shiner would be another good color. Silhouette wise I think a shadow rap shad would be a better choice to mimic Alewife (in terms of Rapala jerkbaits), but realistically if the fish are hitting one lure they'll hit the other

It's called the Shadow Rap Shad, MTBF described it perfectly. The SR Shad slowly floats with a nose up attitude compared to slowly sinking with a nose down attitude which is what the Shadow Rap does. It is a jerkbait, and it's made of plastic like the Shadow Raps are. Can't wait to fish them

I use a 6'8" ML Shimano Crucial Drop-Shot rod with a Shimano Symmetre (1000 size), along with 6lb Sunline FC Sniper. I only use Duo Realis Spinbait 80's (I've never tried any other spybaits), the set up seems good enough for smallies as well as splake

The Duo Realis Shinmushi is a fun little bait, perfect for matching a dragonfly (or cicada) hatch. Man is that little bugger light though, gotta be careful of rod movement even with a M spinning rod
I have fished them, and while I haven't caught anything yet on one, here are my thoughts so far which may help: - there's a certain retrieve speed needed to get the lure to wobble, which is about 2' per second to get a slight wobble. The faster you reel the more pronounced the wobble. I don't think ...
