Ok I have read several sites where people say that they hear we use 30-40 pd mono line down here in the lower colorado area and they don't know why because flatheads always run into the tules or structure. I did the other night notice that I had quite a bit of damage to my leader from the rocks in the spot I was fishing. This told me that maybe I should consider steel leaders. The people on some of these articles are saying that for fish that run into structure you should use braided line. I however don't understand this theory ( note I have never really fished braided line) It would seem to me that braided line would fray easier than mono against rocks or sticks. Am I incorrect? What is everyones opinion on these to competitors and also how does it cast on a large baitcast real? Thanks in advance!
