Curado E7/Citica E/Chronarch B For Musky Fishing???

Recommended Posts

I asked a few days ago if the Citica D would be okay to use for musky fishing.  Now how using the new Curado & Citica & Chronarch B's for musky fishing?  The new Curado's & Citica's are much smaller than the D's & the Chronarch B's seem that it has the "guts" to handle this type of fishing.

I know I could get the Curado 301D, but I don't like the gear ratio & extra weight of this reel.  And the new Abu Toro's are heavy & too much money.

I want to use said reels for lighter musky tackle for spring time.

What's your thoughts????

I own the E7 and wouldn't want to put that much stress on the reel. Buy a Citica E and beat the hell out of it. In this situation you will get the most bang for your buck with Citica.

I would also suggest taking a look at the winch, very nice reel.

THERE IS NOT ENOUGH LINE CAPACITY ON THOSE REELS, you either need a wide spool reel or a round reel, like a calcutta, none of those reels would suit your needs. I'm not trying to be mean or anything, it's just that for musky fishing you would need a little heavier line than those reels are made for, the curado 301e is the best reel for low profile musky fishing, just my 2 cents.

For occasional work they will do ok.  I would not use one as a full-time 'ski reel.  

I would not use the E7 unless you plan on using it for finesse jigs/plastics.  You'll want more gusto for pulling big blades and wooden jerks.

Actually I believe the Winch is rated for 175 yds of #12. Now if you were to use a super braid on this reel, which I assume you would, I think the line capacity would be more than amble. This thing is made for hauling the mail.  JMO
