More about Baitrunner Reels

Baitrunner reels are a type of fishing reel that are designed to make catching fish easier and more efficient, particularly when using live bait. These reels feature a unique dual-drag system that allows the angler to set the reel to two different drag settings: a free spool mode and a fighting mode.

In the free spool mode, the reel's drag is disengaged, allowing the fish to take the bait and swim away without feeling any resistance from the reel. This is especially useful for species of fish that are more cautious or easily spooked by any resistance. Once the angler feels a bite, they can engage the drag and set the hook without the fish feeling any sudden tension or resistance.

In the fighting mode, the reel's drag is engaged, providing resistance to the fish as the angler reels it in. This allows the angler to tire out the fish gradually, making it easier to bring the fish to the surface without the risk of the line breaking or the fish escaping.

Baitrunner reels are popular among anglers who prefer to use live bait, as they provide a more natural presentation and increase the chances of hooking a fish. They are particularly useful for targeting larger species of fish such as carp, catfish, and even sharks.

Overall, baitrunner reels are an essential piece of equipment for any angler who wants to increase their chances of catching fish, and they are available in a variety of brands and models to suit the needs of different types of anglers.

About Daiwa

Founded in 1958, Daiwa has been providing enjoyment and positive feeling to fishermen for generations.  Daiwa has been developing products to meet the ever changing angling market for than 60 years across 8 decades.   Daiwa's evolving technologies are particularly associated with fishing reels - a product that they are considered to be global leaders in.  Only a few years after Daiwa was first formed, they were noted as the 'reel of choice' in 1965 with the launch of their ground breaking 'Open-Faced Reel'. 

Prior to this the norm was to have a closed faced reel.  Daiwa revolutionised this with a product which allowed the angler to wind more line onto the spool faster and with more feel.  This shocked the angling world in all the right ways!

This forward looking, proactive innovation has been central to everything Daiwa have done in the fishing industry ever since.  Today, Daiwa is one of the world's leading fishing tackle brands.  At Fishing Tackle and Bait, we're delighted to be Ireland's biggest stockist of Daiwa products which we ship daily to anglers and fishing enthusiasts all over the world.  In their first 80 years, they've changed fishing forever.  We're looking forward to seeing what Daiwa can do in the next 80!
