    Default Shimano Baitrunner

    Apologies if this is a dumb question but what does "Baitrunner" mean and what are the pros and cons for using one when worm fishing

    It means the spool can be set to run free with an adjustable drag on it so the fish can take bait and swim with it with little or no resistance

    As happy days says there is a lever on the rear that lets the spool spin free. When you turn the handle itl click off and lock the spool up and so you can play the fish on the drag. I dont use one for salmon but use them for coarse fishing with a feeder as sometimes if a carp hooks itself and you arent paying attention itl rip the rod off the rest and possibly into the water.

    I agree, I've used both bait runners and just good quality spinning reels (Shimano et al.) and much prefer the spinning reel (I've found rear drag better)
