    Line is one of those things that everyone has their own opinion on. I too like mono for most of my fishing needs, braid and flouro come in for only certain situations.

    General fishing - straight mono
    Pike - mono with flouro leader
    River - braid with wire leader
    Ocean - braid with wire leader
    Musky - braid with 100lb flouro leader
    Ice fishing - braid with flouro leader or straight mono - This one I am still playing with though. I 90% of my fishing is done on my ultralight 2lb mono, but a good amount of fish I have caught on my rods with braid/leaders have ended up breaking the line. Not sure if the fish were just really big, or my knots are breaking.

    I only fish salt water and with the $ difference between mono leader to Fluoro leader, I’ll stick with mono. My main line is braid exclusively.

    My ocean fishing is a intercoastal waterway at my parents house, so its reds, flounder, trout, snook and those stupid catfish.

    I love Florida for the fishing alone!

    It is great down there. But since I live in MN, my ocean fishing gear is pretty limited. I got a nice toadfish ocean rod last year and a bunch of lures, but pretty much everything we catch on live or cut bait anyways.

    I fish mainly NJ and DE. The Cownose rays invade mid summer but I’ve hooked into a few Roughtail rays which I can’t land. They’re about 200-300 lbs and they suck down to the ocean floor and can’t be moved
