    Hey guys, I have a question. I usually fish with two poles on the beach. While I am plugging I set up a bunker chunker on a fishfinder rig with a 3 or a 4 oz weight. I have heard many different suggestions on how tight to set my baitrunner. Some say to set it very very loose where others...

  9. Reels and Reel Maintenance
    I read alot of positive threads for the baitrunner system and bought one. I chose the 8000D due to an ocassional sturgeon hook up in the ca delta area. I still set the baitrunner system and have not had to use it yet. Am I the only live baitter out there with this happening? Or is it my style of...

    Just picked up this reel for some bait fishing. I've been using braid on all my plugging rods and my conventional bait rod since it came out. Should I use mono or braid on the spinning reel for bait fishing? If you use braid do you use a length of mono as a shock leader?

    I've used this reel once since buying it last year. It is in excellent condition, spooled with 20# mono(Ande clear, I think?). I don't find myself floating bait much and it's too heavy to plug with. So off it goes! $60.00, a good deal IMHO!
