The tail end of summer heralds many things, respite from the sapping heat and humidity of a southeast Queensland, and the anticipation of the onset of the cooler months ahead, and of course the angling opportunities that come with it. A recent trip to one of my favourite cold water bass fisheries, Lake Maroon, has me licking my lips about what’s potentially around the corner.
When it comes to large sized low profile baitcasters the Daiwa Zillion is king. Released in 2007 as the successor to the legendary TDZ the Zillion set a new benchmark in reliability, performance and strength with a host different models delivering a host of different options for the baitcaster fraternity.
When it comes to angler names for JDM bass addicts, especially those with a leaning towards the Daiwa side of things, there’s no bigger than name than Namiki.
The man behind the OSP lure brand and the driving force behind the famous Steez line of rods and reels, the man they called Namiki (aka Machinegun) literally put his name on a reel this time last year.
For those that haven’t seen it take a look at the Steez Namiki Limited.
