Default Re: Best line to use

I use 30# to 65# test braided line in the canal, depending on what I'm fishing, with a long leader. Braided line is actually less abrasion resistant than mono, so a mono or flourocarbon leader that is long enough to keep the braid off the rocks is critical.

I use the 30# test and a spinning reel when I'm casting lures that will stay near the surface. The 65# test comes out on the conventional reel for bottom jigging.
