The Shimano Baitrunner D BTR6000D Spinning Reel is one of the best selling spinning reels here at J&H, as anglers can use this reel in so many ways. Many people who prowl South Shore beaches during the spring striped bass migration will find these fish feeding on large pods of menhaden (bunker, pogy, they’re everywhere). One of the best methods for culling a true monster bass over 50#, is to snag said menhaden and let it drop down below the main school. The Baitrunner 6000 truly shines here, as you can simply snag the bunker and flip the bait switch – the reel will operate in a controlled free spool letting you sense a pickup. Then, simply turn the handle and the traditional drag system (20# max) will kick in letting you firmly set the hook. Now it’s not just a Northeast reel, as anglers everywhere love the bait switch whether they’re throwing cut baits for kings or even some crabs at passing tarpon – the BTR6000D will dominate! You’ll love the feel of this reel, as the combination of the Fluidrive system which features a large polished main gear, as well as 3 Shielded A-RB ball bearings make for a silky smooth retrieve. The Shimano Baitrunner D BTR6000D Spinning Reel sports a powerful 4.8:1 gear ratio which spins your line back on the CF Cold Forged Aluminum Spool at a rate of 35 inches per crank. Speaking of that spool, it’ll hold just about 300 yards of standard 30# braided spectra.
