Now if Riqci mounts the dogfish next to his wall of bass, I'll be impressed more with the dogfish.  O0

And maybe a big 4' long gar to go with it too.

Wow! I've never seen such fat white crappies and a hybrid too.  Or maybe they're all hybrids.  :o

So I was just wondering if anybody ever go to iowa for the wipers? Went there late april and landed a nearly record breaker whiper! Its in the process of being mounted oh..... I can't wait...its funny cause the taxidermist said he hadn't seen one in 20years and then gave me a total...... ??? Its the biggest fish I've caught from there "Ill get some pics for y'all soon  ;D people say its accidental for these fishes but there is a way.....hook a fat head and a big ass sinker!

The other way.  1 oz mimic minnow.  1 oz buck tail jig.  1 oz. Kastmaster.  Then getting very lucky.

My only problem with big bass is setting the hook too soon.  >:D  When you see a huge wave come at your lure, it's a big fish.

I went fishing and about the only fish I caught were some gar's.  Small ones of about 2 feet long to big ones of about 4 feet long.  I'd rather be catching some dogfish, at least they put up much better fights than dragging dead logs that jumps.

2346
Now that's what I'll call a treble hook!  ;)

No Whitebazz on St.Croix where I tried...lots of Bronzebazz.   >:D  I still can't believe whiteboyz are in such a hurry to get to spot a few hundred feet in front of me.  We already know what they be fishing for.  I came back and WOT on them on.   >:D  The fish ain't even biting yet.  Can't some people show a little respect and patience.  Go figure...

Hmmm...I guess I complain a lot.  ;D

Just a regular cranking battery - Get an Interstate - cheap.  They make the Optima's.  Not that the price will justify it for you, but...it depends.

10,000 lakes....but only about 100 good lakes to fish in.  :D

I can only probably name like 10 lakes that I would call good fishing lakes, but not in the same year. ;D

Product name: Shimano Curado 200E5/E7 and Citica 200#
website: Curado E

What it is or whats it use is: Baitcasting reel, low profile.  Use for whatever crank, spinnerbait, T-rig, C-rig, or Wacky rig, style you want it for.  While the Curado can cast 1/4 oz. weight decent, the Citica really needs a lot more effort.  Not worth it for the Citica and better suited for the 1/2 oz. lures.  HEG desing maybe more efficient, but seems to make reel more lopsided to handle heavy side.

Price:  Citica retails $120, Curado retails $180

Reason to buy or not buy the product - what was good or bad about it - overall review: Maybe.  The wider spool is not as efficient as a slightly more narrow spool.  While both Curado and Citica E series are huge improvement over their predecessors, they fulfill a totally different niche.  It's more like these reels were intended for the heavier line and more power fishing styles.  The Curado has almost eliminated the handle backplay.  The Citica still has evident handle backplay.  Citica is also a pain on the maintainence.  The star drag can lose some parts easily and you have to hold the whole handle assembly down as you try to put the handle nut back in.

Your grade from 5-1 stars (1 being the worst and 5 being the best): 4.0 for Curado.  3.0 for Citica

What kind of rod you got the test run on?  What type of line and how heavy?

It's always kind of hard to tell unless you have identical setups side by side.  Then compare the upgraded one right next to the stock one.

Took out one of the reel for a few time to the local park.  The freespool is definately alot smoother than the stock bearings.  But when I casted it, it didn't seem like I got more distance than the stock bearings.  I heard that the abec 7 needed to be broken in first but it's been a few trip already and it's still the same.  Is it worth the upgrade? I didn't think so afterward. But I got them at $18 /pr which is about the same price if I ordered a pr of bearing from Shimano. 

You never mentioned what kind of reel you upgraded the bearings on.  Anyway casting distance is governed by order of lure weight, rod length, line size, reel drag, spool weight, then bearing.  Improving the bearings should allow to to pitch and flip with a lot less effort.  If you didn't get a lightweight spool and didn't take your drag all off, then you might not get the casting distance you were looking for.

The orange seal has orange seal on the bearing shield.  Maybe the bearings are rubbing up against it so therefore you aren getting the casting distance you ought to.
