The Shimano Dendou-Maru Forcemaster 9000 brings a whole new dimension to the range of power assisted reels in to the New Zealand fishing tackle market. Kiwi anglers now have the ability to drop baits in to the deep offshore canyons and seamounts to prospect new areas and target monster deep water ooglies like bass, gemfish, hapuku, and bluenose, previously unavailable to more traditional styles of reels.
Extra-deep-water bottom fishing is fast becoming extremely popular. Once the exclusive preserve of commercial fisherman, recreational anglers are now investigating the deep reefs that lie either side of the continental shelf drop off, often in depths up to 500m and more. This is a long way down and a long-way up — especially with a hefty fish or two on the end.
When fishing in the deep bethos it is important to get your baits in to the strike zone as quickly as possible and retrieve line back on to the reel at pace and efficiently - this means more time actually fishing and when faced with short bite times, this effective system maximises one's chance of landing the big one
