Vibration is important

http://duo-inc.co.jp/en/fieldreport/world/2013/07/161017.php

Duo Realis Vibration series of plastic lures are designed to be successful bass catchers, but the largest model Vibration 68 seems to be "a must have lure" for catfish and other river predators. Since last year I have been fishing only few times with this lure, and almost each time I had specimen of this mustached fish on my rood. OK, till now all caught fish are not that big, but I have to admit that the largest catfish broke my braided fishing line and escaped with my lure in it's mustache. I couldn't stop it when it started to swim downstream, and I really think this was a nice trophy catfish, I'm dreaming to have on my photos in the future.

Design of this lure is absolute perfect for fishing in the rivers. Heavy enough with narrow profile looking from above has excellent casting abilities, and it is great for searching the areas in the river. It produces fantastic vibrations with sound effect that is irresistible to catfish. And not only to catfish. I have some chub on this lure, and smaller sized version 52 is great for asp. The main point is in leading this lure trough the river. I always use river currents as the energy without or with slow retrieving, allowing the lure to run along the river and holding my braided line tight. At the end I stop it and let it vibrate in the place on the edge of the river rapids, holding my rod high enough to place lure approximately 1 meter from the bottom of the river. It is important to feel the tiny vibration produced by lure in river current and just to hold the rod without any action waiting for fish to bite. You can let the lure for one minute to work on this way at one place, and than move it upstream slowly and repeat the procedure. Some fish will took lure in free swimming along the river current when you are just holding your braided line tight. The other fish will took lure when vibrates in the place or when lure is slowly retreived near the bank. Sometimes adding the action with the top of the rod helps, but this lure works for you without wasting your energy for any fast retrieving. Of course you can twitch it sometimes and add some moves with feeling to provoke the fish, but generally you need to use lures vibration and keep your energy to fight with the fish. It is well known that catfish is a great fighter, that deserves to be released like other fish back to water after a short photo session.
