Shimano Thunnus C14 Baitrunner

Built tough for tough saltwater species, the Thunnus CI4+ range consists of four sizes from 4000 to 12000, which covers every inshore to medium offshore bait fishing application imaginable.

While the fishing world concentrates heavily on lure fishing, it’s great to see a major player like Shimano supply dedicated baitfishing equipment to assist the vast number of baitfishing anglers in Australia.

Equipped with Shimano’s Baitrunner feature, the Thunnus C14 is all about tackling larger fish using live or dead baits.

After free spooling a bait down to where the target species lurks, the Baitrunner function is engaged. The spool begins to spin as a fish is fooled into accepting the bait under near-zero tension; you turn the handle, engage the main drag and… hook up!

The Thunnus is packed full of inclusions, with six bearings and an oversize handle making cranking the brutish fish in as smooth as silk.

The Thunnus range covers a wide array of fishing scenarios from mulloway in the estuaries and on the offshore reefs, live-baiting Barra in the rivers, and float baiting Mackerel from your boat. The biggest reels will also tackle the largest Snapper, GTs, and Kingfish when the need arises.

The Shimano Thunnus is an incredibly capable baitrunner-style reel that is built to play with big fish. The list of features, the broad applications, and Shimano quality and development mean you will not put one step wrong with the Thunnus doing the hard work for you.
