      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

Help Me Dietz! (Shimano reel ???)

Question

TurnUpTheFishing

I own several Citicas already and like everything but the size. I thought about getting one of the Curado 100dsv but started comparing it to the new Citica 100dsv. My question is What do I get for the extra $80 I would spend on a Curado over the Citica? On paper they appear to be the same reel. Well, the Curado has the extra bearing and Septon handle but is that worth $80?

Thanks for any help.

Ok, you are correct that they are very similar. They will have different handles I believe as you stated. The frames are made of a different metal. The Curado is alum, the Citica is an alloy of some sort, the Curado frame would be better then, and heavier.. yet they do other things to actually make it lighter, so its .1 oz lighter. The Curado also has a Dartainium drag which is more consistant and smooth.

So, for $80 you get slightly lighter,stronger frame, 1 more ball bearing, and a better drag.

I hope this helps you out. If you have more questions feel free to ask, Otherwise I will be working at the Cabelas in Rogers on March 16-17-18.

Thanks for the help Deitz. Its appreciated. Though Ive been looking on the Shimano website and it appears that both models have the dartanium drag systems. With them being so similair I guess im leaning towards the Citica but part of me still wants to get that Curado.

oopsy, your right, the Citica does have the Dartanium drag as well.. so your really looking at .1oz lighter and a stronger frame. Thats it!

      I found a great bait selection at the Baxter Fleet Farm today.  3 sizes of suckers, multiple sizes of golden shiners, and of course fat heads and crappies. The first bait shop I tried only had fat heads and crappies.

      There was a couple mixed in the bucket. They were big shiners 5 to 6 inch range. The shiners would be down for 6 hours or so each time and we never waited that long for a sucker to be taken. Just our experience. If a guy could have both I say try and see.

      Call ahead for shiners.  I’ve heard there aren’t any left in the state.  At Mille Lacs 2 weeks ago I asked for some and the guy looked at me like I was stupid. Of course I blame that on the question...

      Fowldreams, did you have shiners? Just curious if preferred them over shiners, or thats just what you had.
    • fowldreams
      suckers, suckers, suckers. This was the only bait that worked for us last weekend and when the fish hit the rattle reels line spooled fast.

      What surprised me about the fishery in SE Florida is that it is mostly live bait (Shiners). There are so many fish in those channels that the Peacock's won't chase a bait for long. I guess they can be caught on the fly but your casts needs to be very accurate and your hookset quick because they spit the flies fast. Our guide said artificials could be done but you're going to spend all day to maybe catch a few fish. Watching the videos of those Amazon Peacock's destroying topwater plugs and jerkbaits looks like a riot!!!
