I don't see why it wouldn't work. Should be fine. But on a real big fish you'd probably feel better if it were stronger line.Would 30 lb sufix work? .......
Unless they are tying their terminal tackle right to the braid, their leader material should be breaking.The only problem with the heaver braid like 50lb test. If you get it caught in the wreak. You have to break it off. I have watched guys break rod tips off. You can't wrap it around your hand and break it off ether. It will cut you before breaking. I carry a wood dowel for that but any hard piece of tool or rod but will work.
The best part is a big fish can be hauled out from in the wreak.
50lb-65lb braid simply because I can't think of a reason to go lighter. All sizes of braid are so thin compared to mono, why go light?
50lb mono for a topshot because I feel it gives much better abrasion resistance than the braid if it touches the wreck.
40lb mono for all the rigs as that is what will break when I get snagged, which will happen.
braid for blackfish- No way - fresh quality mono is all you need. learn to feel the bite.When the right one starts bulldogging you will be glad to have the stretch.What do guys go with? What's the lightest and what's the heaviest? Just curious. Looking for the ideal strength to fish the rocks and fish to 60 feet or so. Thanks again- Pat
Ten ounces of lead ,80 foot drops, pulling current and a, heaving sea , I'll take braid and a ten foot leader of mono and FEEL the thump of that bite.braid for blackfish- No way - fresh quality mono is all you need. learn to feel the bite.When the right one starts bulldogging you will be glad to have the stretch.
