Im just looking at TackleT... right now and this reel sounds like a big improvement over the D. These reels and going to have a smaller profile, weigh less, more bearings all while still being cheaper than the D! For some reason they did away with the 6:1 gear ratios in the curado 200 size.

The new Citica has the 6:1 ratio but nothing else. It does have many new improvements and is staying at the current price.

One of the perks of being on the Shimano Pro-Staff. You get to tease us all with the newest and coolest gear. Lucky! What rod are you going to mate it up to?

Looks nice. Can't wait to see the specs. I love my old green curados. Have been babying them for a few years and wondering what I will replace them with someday. The Curado D's are too heavy for my tastes. This is encouraging news form shimano.

I'm not 100% sure, but I think they put retail on that puppy at $179.99... I could be wrong though.

    • Black Hills Spruce are doing very well with the clay and other competing trees in our yard.  The Colorado Blues are doing OK with the soil, but they sure like space, air, and non-compete areas of full day sun.  
    • We see the gray cheeked thrush once in a while, first time this spring. First sighting in the yard for the Eastern Phobe so checked it off in the book.  
    • Well my team didn't do too bad I had 3 make it to day 3 (Dean Rojas finished 54th), and 2 fished Sunday.  I actually landed in the 96th percentile for the tournament and bumped me up to 80.1% as of now.
    • no mulch expert but i wouldnt think so, unless the mulch has die in it!!!!!!!! yea i have a lawn, i dont bag my clippings. i rake it up by had.....like hard workin union guys do ....... but dont ever get near enough!!!!!!!
    • The Cheffrey recipe that thirdeye talks about is a good one.  it's a little work but it turns out great - cooking the fillets before hand allows for easy flaking of the fish and makes for a shorter cooking time.  They're VERY filling, like thirdeye says, can only eat about 2 at a time.  i like to whip-up a little chipotle ranch-type dipping sauce for these as well.
    •   You don't have a lawn? 
    •   Sure thing! FYI, I skipped the netting and just put the ham on a rack. Worked just fine. Good luck!
    • @Haug  that was for hunterdown...  
    • congrats, great bird and pix
    • Another great week to start off the open water fishing season! Fishing has been consistent even with the ever changing weather last week. Some boats still catching over 100 fish in a day, weeding through small fish to find good keeper walleyes and saugers. Key depths around 17-24' of water. Good fishing all across south shore. Fish are responsive to most kinds of bait right now but jig and a minnow is the best presentation with pink and gold jigs standing out.  Some anglers pulling spinners.  Others hit reefs in 25-30', also good. Jumbo perch and pike mixed in all over the lake.     Walleyes are still in the Rainy River but fishing has slowed besides a good morning bite. Most walleyes have headed back to the lake but some remain in the river. Same as the lake, a jig and a minnow have been best tactic for boating walleyes.  Sturgeon fishing is closed until July 1st.   Up at the NW Angle, anglers are hammering fish.  Many have limits before lunch.  Fish are all over islands such as Oak Island and Little Oak. Jig and a minnow up at the angle is the go to method. Gaining steam is trolling with cranks in the shallows or pulling spinners to keep baits moving. Colors should include chartreuse, pink, glow colors and some gold. Key depths ranged from 16-26' of water. Crappies can be found in Canada in 20' of water with sandy bays. Pike being found in current areas. Many smallmouth bass found with walleyes.
