Shimano Baitrunner OC Fishing Reels

The Baitrunner has deep roots in the Australian fishing scene, with the freespool principle having been first conceptualised here. The Shimano Baitrunner OC range now feature advances like a machined handle, a replaceable spool clicker, Varispeed Oscillation for perfect line lay with Power Pro braid, and Propulsion Line Management for greater distance while casting. The Shimano baitrunner OC lever moves towards the body to stop any accidental gear changes, and there‚Äôs three SA-RB bearings and an anti-reverse bearing. The Shimano Baitrunner OC range will cover you for most of what you need to do if you want to start beach or rock fishing.


Shimano Baitrunner OC Fishing Reels

All Shimano Baitrunner OC reels will double both as land based and Boat reels but are ideal for beach fishing as you can click the Baitrunner on and not have to worry about your rod and reel being dragged into the water by a big fish. 

The Shimano Baitrunner OC 4000 is the perfect size for Bream and whitting but will still handle Salmon and Tailor off the beach and will suit Power Pro Braid in from 8lb up 10lb comfortably.

The Shimano Baitrunner OC 6000 is a good allrounder for beach fishing and Boat fishing, it is a popular boat reel for Fisherman fishing for Jewfish as it helps present the bait naturally without the fish feeling the tension of the line or weight of the sinker. The Shimano Baitrunner OC 6000 will suit Power Pro Braid from between 15lb up to 30lb. The Baitrunner 6000 OC is also great for Salmon, Tailor, Jewfish off the beach and Bonito and small Kingfish off the rocks.

The Shimano Baitrunner OC 8000 is a great reel for a wide range of species, it is a good boat reel for Jewfish much like the Baitrunner 6000 OC and 12000 OC  and will handle bigger Kingfish off the rocks and will handle a Big Jewfish off the Beach, The Shimano Baitrunner 8000 OC will also do light offshore work for Snapper and Kingfish.

If you are looking for a Large Baitrunner that will catch big fish without a big cost, The Shimano Baitrunner OC 12000 is the reel for you, the entry level in the Shimano Baitrunner range, it is an affordable reel that will handle all large species. Personally used by Louis and Ernie from Otto's Tackle World in Malaysia for Sailfish for a week without a hiccup. We used them spooled with 50lb Power Pro.
