I started this thread on the Indiana board and got some good results so I figured I would see what my home state has to say. I have switched back to mono (Berkley Big Game) in the last few years after having great success with braid. Why you may ask? Well I am still in school and I can't afford to spool my five or six catfish reels with braid every spring at almost 30 bucks a pop (PowerPro/300yds). So I figured I would start a thread and see what you guys or gals think is the best or what is the best in certain situations. Who knows someone may know of a place to pick up line for a good price and could let some of us know.
