what size of line do yall use .and why
i use 80# power pro, mainly cause i'm fishin the river with alot of logs and snags and low hanging trees so i need to horse the fish in a little faster to keep them from gettin hung up, i also use a 40# mono leader cause the mono holds up better in the rocks
I use #65 Power Pro and a #40 mono leader. I only bank fish the Mississippi and need something strong enough to get the fish away from snags and out of the current. I also need the small diameter for casting distance.
100# Power Pro braid with a 50# fluorocarbon leader. Needed for fishin' heavy structure in the river.

Same as above, sometimes you just have to be able to horse a 30+ lb. fish from cover. I started with 65lb. power pro and now use 100lb.. I use either 50lb. or 80lb. clear premium salt water ande for leaders for abrasion resistance. If your not fishing the trash and stumps then you can get away with the 20 lb. mono a lot of people use on this site. They wouldn't get many fish in if they fished where I fish most days.
I used 80# Calcutta (braid) for years when I fished Flatheads in snag infested waters (IN, SC)). I mostly fish open (deep) water now and have switched back to 40# mono.
I see no reason to fish any less than that.
100 # power-pro/ 80# cajun red leader, cause I want to see what I catch !!!
