Fisho “Frogfish” Alan managed to give the Shimano Baitrunner 8000D a good workout on a recent Rompin Sailfish fishing outing. It was a great fight and the fish came early.
First stop as usual, for all the boats, were to jig for live baits with sabiki jigs. The baits were a little smaller than preferred this time round but the first sail still came fast and thick. The little Tamban hardly swam for 10 minutes in the seas when the Baitrunner started to sing every fisher’s favorite tune. zzzzzzzzzzZZZZZZZZZ the spool spun and the fight was on.
