Well, I went and got some 25# Berkley Big Game mono. Then, after getting home I thought, heck I'm going to take this back and find some braided 80#. Now, after reading Riverrats post, just as my suspicions are, the braided would be hell to get loose from a snag. I'm going to go ahead and proceed with the mono. I guess there is a catch 22 here. Like Rivercat said, "you give a big cat an inch, and you're hung". All this being said, I have heard no mention of anyone using 30# braided. Wonder if that would be a happy medium?
