Shimano Baitrunner 8000D

This is a very good reel - the drag is smooth and the range of resistance for the live bait function is very good. Easy positive bail operation and smooth retrieve. Had a great time catching stripers live lining pogies this fall around the Elizabeth Islands. Great value for the money.

Reel works excellent for live bait or casting plugs. heavy duty and has handled numerous 30+ lbs stripers since i bought it.

Purchased one of these reels about a year back. I do mostly fluke and striped fishing with the reel and it's excellent. It's smooth has a pretty good drag and holds a decent amount of line. Although it's on the higher end price worth it's worth the extra money.
One of my Fav's

The Shimano baitrunner is one of my favorite all time reels. I use them not only on the boat but also on the surf and the baitrunner feature is amazing. I use this 8000 on my 12 foot surf rod that i use mostly for chunking bait, but also use the 6000 off the surf and the 4000 on the boat. Excellent value for such a quality fishing reel.

Worked like a charm.

We used this reel for albacore fishing off the coast of WA and it held up just great. You have to get one fish one and let it take out a fair amount of line so when you reel it in, it tightens down the braided line. It was a kick to used on these fast running fish.
ProsGreat price for a quality reel. Bait runner feature is great!
ConsWish it could hold a full 300 yds of line.

How many yards of power pro 80 lb can I put in this reel. I am going after Cuberas and need heavy line on it.
This reel will hold 150 yards or less of that strength line. If you need more line than that, I would recommend considering a bigger reel.

WHATS SPINNIG ROD BY SHIMNO RECOMENDED FOR THIS REEL
Frank, To answer the question that reel would be great on a Shimano Terez spanning rod. To better answer your question and to get you the perfect rod in that line what type of fishing will you be doing such as jigging, casting, live bait/ chunk-ing and for what type of fish.

Is the 8000D too big for surf fishing (stripers, shark, etc.)?
The 8000D would be a good size for surf fishing. You would have plenty of drag as well as line capacity to handle such fish.
