    I use 30# fireline. Works great for me. What do you all use?

    I like the braided super lines myself. I prefer a little heavier though. Especially when fishing for flatties close to big snags. I like to be able to turn them quickly and keep them from wrapping me up.

    This year I was trying out Cajun Red Advantage line and liked it. I use silver thread too. I just ordered some High Seas Red Devil Hi-Vis line, to put onto a couple of my reels to test for a trip to Santee in the next few months.

    Stren 10# red box (regular) or the Berkley Vanish Transition on my bass rods. But we don't have those huge ol' flatties up here either! or probably Berkley Big game if I had to choose.

    15 and 20 lb. Trilene Big Game. Tough stuff!

    I just spooled one rod with 20 (was using all 15), and when I snag that one, I have to wrap a towel around my hand and wrap the line to break it.

    30# biggame is over and above the best line for its weight , results 65# blue and 50# flathead as well as numerous 10# to 40# fish on the same spool of line over 3 years old

    I mainly use 20 pound braided line mostly because I use the same line for catching spotted and longnose gar, and I've seen them cut through 20# mono like it was nothing...

    The other main reason I prefer braided is that I can spool about 200 yards of the stuff on my medium-action spinning reel and still set a hook from 100+ yards with no stretching (drift-fishing a river).

    The only downfall to braided is that its a PAIN IN THE @SS TO TIE!!!:angry:

    I use 25 and 30 pound Big Game. I have also used 25 and 30 pound P-line and do not like it nearly as much, i think it has bad line memory.

    I like trilene big game, usually 40 to 50#. I have lost too many big fish on lighter line. Many years ago I tried fireline but it seemed to cut my guides up under stress. Haven't tried it since so maybe they changed it now.
