If you're going to be chunking bait and occasionally plugging the Shimano Baitrunners are very hard to beat. They are inexpensive, very durable, have a good drag and the baitrunner feature is fantastic for bait fishing.

I fish with both Shimano Spheros and Baitrunner reels. If you are going to do any plugging in addition to bait fishing, I would prefer the Spheros. If you are just going to throw bait, then the baitrunner 4500 would be perfect.

If all you want to do is soak bait than nothing beats the shimano

baitrunners...

But i would go with the 6500..It only weights 7oz more than the

4500 but it hold 270yds of 20lb mono unlike the 4500 that

only holds 195yd of 20lb mono...

 

Plus you arent worrying about weight anyway...

I have two newer models and i also have one of the first ones

that came out and that old reel is still going strong...

Once you use the baitrunner mode you will love it....

 

You can pick up a new 6500 for less than $120 on fleabay....

I have not fished my new Shimano BR 6500. I like it. It's a highly regarded, proven performer. The 6500 is about 2 #, a little on the heavy side, not a big minus when throwing bait.
