I use trilene 20 big game for my "guests" and trilene 17 XL for myself which allows a good compromise for casting, baiting and live lining.

my favorite all around is 20lb ande pink line. Seems to have less memory and handles very smooth without compromising strength. I also favor trilene big game and suffix seige. Best bang for the buck would be cajun redline. It has more memory but seems to have the thinnest feeling diameter and is best imo for abrasion resistance. Everytime I'm stuck and gotta break off by far I have the hardest time breakin redline. Stuffs almost put me on my ass a few times lol

I'm with you. I don't get carried away. too many poles to spool each year. buy cheap, and set the drag correctly. no problems.

I have been using braided the last couple years, I feel it works better for ocean surf casting then in the hudson. So on that note Im switching to mono this year. Anyone use spiderwire ? Ive heard mixed things about it.

Have you tried tripping tourists with your mono?

I've used 12pd spider wire and you can't tie any simple knots (clinch) with it, without having it breaking. So much trouble getting it to not break on the spool, but I have not used their thicker lines.

For bait, live bait fishing I've heard that 20 ande high-viz line is good.

I know for a fact that suffix siege 14 line is a very reliable mono, it looks rectangular rather than round but it works wonders for fluke, snapper, large porgies, striped bass, and other fish. it's so good i use it as a long leader line.

I'd tell you how it casts but besides tying very good knots with it, i actually haven't gotten to spool a reel with it and do a full cast.

Either way, ande and suffix siege I've heard and experienced good things with.

20 lb. BBG...I appreciate the comment about braid not being so swell for the Hudson. Just got a new rig and was thinking it might be time for braid, but I'm most often in the Hudson...rock on y'all.

So it seems like 20lb ande or burkley big game. But yea the braid for what ever reason, my best guess is the dual direction current, its tough to keep the line straight and tight

Yozuri hybrid. smaller diameter, ties great and lasts longer. price is on par with the rest of the mono.

I use mono in fresh water and as someone stated earlier, i use braid for distance in the surf though.

Another vote for the cheap walmart stuff. 20 lb is a happy medium.

I too love mono. I tried out braid but didn't like the no stretch. Since I cut bait mono is very forgiving. I just bought some p - line Cxx because it got great reviews and I plan to do more then striper fish with it. I have yet to try it out when I do I'll comment on it. So far my favorite 3 lines are Cajon red, zebco omni flex and triline xl. I use 12 pound for most everything. And all three of these lines have little memory, knot well and last forever. I rarely re line.

I use 20 lb BG last year caught my best Striper 44 inch 39 lb She made 3 runs that seemed like 100 yards maybe exaggerated but not by much.with a dozen boats below me I had to try and stop her. It meant thumbing the spool and strait pulling with with rod and line. Once she hung my sinker and had to give her head back to her so she could get me unstuck! Some guy in a yellow kayak cheering me on! I fish in a row boat as I had to sell my 20 ft Lund in 2010 to pay for med bills for family member. Ironic that I have more fun and caught my personal best in a row boat!

That's a great fish, Congrats!! I have had good luck with big game, I use it for a 30# leader. I don't understand why everyone has such a problem fishing braid, rarely have tangles and if I do it's user error. I love no stretch you can see and feel everything that is happening at the end of your line, nice for drifting live or shorefishing.

I love braided too. Casting it much better and sometimes there's a whole bunch of line out before I set the hook so I love the no-stretch.I doubt I'll ever switch...

I have been using braid for the past two years with no issues.

If I were to use mono I would use Big Game or XL.
