I mostly use flourocarbon for my main line and a mono leader.

    Under almost all circumstances, I will use 14-17 lb. fluorocarbon main line and 12 lb. fluorocarbon leader.

I use 15#-17# fluorocarbon main line and 12-15 lb mono leader. Sometimes I use braid for my main line but I think it is quite a bit more visible than floro even though it is the main line.Your baits will have more floatation with a mono leader.

If you're talking open water and a 3/4 oz weight, I like 20 lb Fireline.  Nothing casts farther and has as much sensitivity.  When a bass bites 125' away, max sensitivity and zero stretch work best.  I use fluoro but superlines have their place and this is one for me.

                  high bank canal 15#/20# leader,light(2000) spinning

Saltwater..........most beach use 15#/30# leader

Assuming you are using a baitcaster, Yo-Zuri Hybrid #12.

.013" diameter, 19.5 lb breaking strength.

For spinning tackle, Hybrid or Hybrid Ultra Soft #6.

.010" diameter, 11.9 lb breaking strength.

Regardless of the line you chose, KVD Line & Lure

Conditioner will improve performance.

After going from Y/Z Hybrid two years ago to strictly 100% Flourocarbon from Berkley, I'm going back to the Y/Z and sticking with it. Of all the other stuff I've tried or fished with in between you simply can't beat Y/Z.
