    Fishing threade

    A question for my fellow boarde riding sh!t tossing fishermen. Do you use braid or mono? If you use braid, what kind and why. If you prefer mono, what kind and why? I typically use mono, I like the Yo-Zuri Hybrid line and I like Suffix. I was thinking about jumping over to the braid. Read some reviews and I was going to try the Kast King brand.

    I use braid most of the time. Power pro... I like top water fishing and it cast's much better for me... Plus I get tired of losing plugs to Bluefish.

    Worked in the fishing tackle business and ran charters for 10 years. I only like braid for bottom fishing and vertical jigging in deep water. Stretch is your friend.

    Shut up and fish! lol


    This debate could go on all night.
    Braid is great for casting, for many reasons. Diameter, strength, resiliency...more.
    Casting mono filament for line strength of 8 lb and less. Fresh water.
    Heavy mono used for jigging, trolling, chunking... from a boat. Salt water.

    does anyone use braided with a mono leader?


    15# braided w/30# mono for live bait rigs. mostly pitching the finger mullet or tiger minnows under docks for reds. if i get lazy I'll drag it on bottom for flounder.

    anyone else do this?

    Braid on all my rods, power pro and suffix. Even tie direct to a tacticle angler snap, no leader most of the time. Salt water fish are not that smart. Been into stripers all winter and had several 50 plus fish days and not one break off. Try doing that with mono. One thing about braid that sucks, on baitcasters the backlashes are insane. Since last November I have boated well over 300 stripers and not one was a keeper, can you believe that?!!

    No bait artificials only, caught ten last night in an hour and the second to last one felt like a monster on light gear. Was sure it was legal because of its girth. Laid it on the ruler and it was only 25 inches but fat as hell. **** one more to my total and not legal!

    For reds I might use a flouro leader, especially in shallow clear water.
