You'll see alot of guys recomend 65 and 80 for mats, I don't, I use 50lb and feel pretty good about it. Then again a 3 to 5, maybe a 6, once in a blue moon a 7lb fish is what we produce up here, if your in a spot that can give up a 10+ lber, maybe you would want 65-80lb line

Go 65 to be safe. I have broken 50lb test from several companies. If you have a chance at a 7-9lb fish, there's no reason not to play it safe.

Stick with 65, if you bump up higher, it can put a damper on your casting distance. 65 is a great all around line for what you're looking to do.

As for leader, I use fluoro and copoly depending on where I'm fishing. Google a blood knot to see the knot that I like to use. I've yet to have an issue with it. I use 12,15,20,25, and 30lb leaders depending on conditions.

Re throwing swimbaits...depending on the weight..i.e. 2oz and above..15lb leader min. and I would go with a coploymer, not fluro. And check your knots Often..Trust me one this one.. :D
