Few could have imagined how Ron Davis Sr.’s unique new lure invention would profoundly improve the catches of bass anglers for decades when he sold his first Chatterbaits at a South Carolina tackle show 16 years ago.
Of course, dozens of manufacturers now mimic Mr. Davis’ patented lure, and for good reason – it’s easy to use – it’s versatile – and it flat-out catches fish.
If these were normal times, you’d see DNR workers manning nets this week for adult muskies at Lake Webster.
But the times they are a changin’.
There will be no muskie collection or egg taking this year due to stay-at-home orders and the Covid-19 crisis.
A 10.0: 1 gear ratio. Think about it. In basic terms, that means you get ten rotations of the spool for every full crank. That’s some amazing pick-up, ideal for moving lures at break-wind speeds and pulling uncooperative fish from structure and cover. And that’s precisely what Daiwa’s new low-profile Zillion 10.0 puts in your hands.
