ammendment: if I'm fishing somewhere with a likelihood of snagging, especially using expensive cranks, I use braid heavy enough to try to pull myself off.

I once spoke to a wise man at the NW sports show and I came to the conclusion that it's what works best for YOU! It's a combination of what you feel the most comfortable using. I personally use a lot of Mono/Copoly as of right now I just feel more comfortable throwing it and feel as though I have more confidence in controling the spool and bait. I also fish very little HEAVY vegetation so I only have braid spooled on one rod

Its not only what works best for you, but what you have confidence in. If you don't have confidence in the line you are using you will blame it for losing a fish that was really your fault and other things like that. So with that being said here is what I fish.

Braid- spinnerbaits, buzzbaits, jigs, heavy texas rigged plastics, slug/senko.

Mono- crankbaits, topwater, light texas rig, jigworm.

I have yet to use any floro, and although I probably should in some instances, I like what I use now so why change.

I currently use Yo-Zuri ultra soft and/or hybrid for everything. I have had no problems with it at all to speak of. I use it in 6lb test up to 20 and literally for everything from slop to drop shotting...works for me.

I agree most of it is personal opinion but in some cases there are lines you need to use to stay ahead of competition. Do most agree with this or am I going in the wrong direction

I agree with that rppinlips. Prime example is braid in heavy cover.

    • Yards lookin' good, boober! 
    • Dishwasher for me if I don't get to them right away like thirdeye.
    • I sprayed mine almost a month ago.  An ortho product that seamed to work.  All that's left is the dead grass it choked out.
    • Now that rubechat forums are history....   Lets light this place up...Rubes!
    • We spent the past week in Door County Wisconsin on vacation with 4 other couples and our campers. I had it all lined up for 6 members of our group to go out on a chartered fishing trip in the early morning of Thursday. The charter called me at 8:00 Wed. evening to inform me that the boat had broken down and wouldn't be fixed until later that day and there were no available re-scheduling opportunities until Monday.    GGGRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!
    • Well looks like the draft came and went without much fireworks, sounds like Fletcher didn't like any of the offers so he is going to wait to make a move. Hard to see us fitting under the cap or filling out a full team without moving Scandella or Pommers so we will see what happens.

      Of course drafting from the 3rd round on doesn't lead to many super exciting players but it sound like we got a couple midgets with some skill and several projects. Our big off season move might have been keeping everyone through expansion. 
    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.
