I had been using Suffix Elite 12 lb for topwater, and it worked great. I found myself in possession of 4,700 yds of 12 lb blaze orange Berkley ProSpec Chrome recently, so I'm using that until I run out lol.

I almost exclusively fish soft plastic and have used Trilene Big Game for over 20 years and it has never let me down. It's great for areas with oyster shell due to great abrasion resistance. I have tried many other lines and have always come back to Big Game. Also, 20# seems very heavy for soft plastic. I use 12# to get better distance.

Braid Vs. Mono

I am 68 years old. I grew up fishing the in the Corpus Christi area and started fishing when I was seven years old. Actually the first place I ever fished was College Port, Texas. Caught a 12” Croaker and been fishing ever since. Had relatives that owned property in Matagorda County. Anyway grew up fishing Ocean Drive, Padre Island Surf, and Upper Laging Madre in the Corpus area. I used Mono Line exclusively on a Mitchell Spinning Reel on a Black Harrell Rod. Used 8 to 12 lb. mono. Very seldom broke off. Used live and dead shrimp mostly. I currently use 10 to 15 lb. mono on Spinning and bait casting reels. Use no leaders. Catch a lot of average size speckle Trout and Redfish including oversized Redfish throwing nothing but artificial. Mostly Corkie’s. Very Very seldom break off. I use no leaders. I too use Big Game Trilene.

We have a place in Rockport, Texas and that is the area I Fish now.

Appreciate all the replies/suggestions. I am having to use mono due to budget and looking to get the best bang for the buck. Still have a boat payment and a kid in college lol!!! After boat is paid off, I will purchase more braid. Looks like I will start to utilize 12# as well.

I have always used original Stren, mainly braid these days but can’t really tell you that one feels or works better than another. I have fluorocarbon on one real but again can’t tell the difference.

I can say I wasted at least $50 on braid when first learning to cast it.

Haven't used mono in over 10 years with the exception of my kids bay rigs, and they use Big Game or Ande. All my rigs, from bay to offshore are braid with a fluro or Momoi leader using the FG knot

IMO, Big Game is the best bang for the buck and easily found in most stores. I snapped 12# BG too often. Therefore, 15# BG was my preference.
