Just wanted to take a quick moment to thank everyone who responded to my blogs about buying a baitcaster. I was able to buy the new Citica E from Shimano after reading a report on this reel and comparing it to the the Curado E, and what a joy to cast. I did have the usual birdsnest on a rare occasion, and did have to cut off a few yards of line on one occasion, but overall, I was getting the same distance as my spinning reel, and we're working on the accuracy. It also helped that the wind came up and I got to practice making the adjustments to avoid the "nest," while casting into the wind. No Bass to report, but this was a day of practice and exploration, the fish (Bass) will come.
Fishing, like life, should always be fun.
Even on those days when the bite is no where to be found, but the jetski's are!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
