Don't fish with live or dead bait often but when i do this reel is great.
The Port of Long Beach is the second busiest container port in the United States and is among the world's largest shipping ports.
The city also maintains a progressively declining oil industry with minor wells located both directly beneath the city as well as offshore.
I'd never owned a "bait runner" reel before, now I wonder how I ever lived without one. I use this mostly for saltwater bottom fishing (in Rhode Island), but will throw a plug on if the bluefish are around (they are fun to catch). I purchased Thunnus 6000 to pair with my star rod Paraflex 10'. I learned through hard knocks with other live liners reels. I have caught 40 inch Stripers off the pier with breeze. I live the weight of this thing and I've never had any issue with sand or anything getting where it shouldn't Based on Shimano's and Tackle Direct expert recommendations; i coupled this with a 7 ft 2 Terez med-heavy [30-80lb] rod and it came to be a wonderful combi.
Fished with this reel 8 straight days on the saltwater and don't see any signs of corrosion anywhere on the reel (I did give it a freshwater wash down after every trip). Please do yourself a favor and skip other live liner reels and buy the shimano baitrunner. Used 30 lb braid and been catching barracuda, seabass, rock fish with it.
Thunnus CI4 is up to 7 ounces lighter than its predecessor without sacrificing any power. Due to new drag systems for the Main Drag and the Baitrunner drag Thunnus CI4 is the most efficient live bait spinning reel on the market with unmatched adjustability for fishing any bait in any condition as well as the smooth stopping power that this generation of Thunnus will be known for. This makes me worry about the long term durability of the new Thunnus. Time will have to be my judge on if the composite holds up as well as the metal for the older Baitcasters. Once a fish is on, turn the handle and the reel automatically switches from baitrunner mode to fighting mode.
Thunnus CI4 is a response to all the anglers out there in love with the ease of use and functionality that wanted the reel to shed some weight. One of the reels I received the composite base was broken and I had to return for a replacement. I love these reels for surf fishing because I can set the reel on my rod holder, flick on the baitrunner switch and I don't have to worry about leaving the bail open or loosening up my main drag.Some of these pairs fell in love in high school — or even earlier (Hi, Cory and Topanga!) — and as young viewers, we too thought there would be a chance of meeting our one and only before college.They had at least three major settlements within the present-day city.Tevaaxa'anga was an inland settlement near the Los Angeles River, while Ahwaanga and Povuu'nga were coastal villages.We love to immerse ourselves in the stories of star-crossed lovers.
