    Brand? whatever the resort supplies. Usually Tuff-plus.
    Color? white because I can see it best, fish don't care.
    Lb test? 80 is plenty(imho), were not lifting engine blocks off the bottom. Never seen a need for anything heavier especially after seeing numerous 100+ pounders come up on 25lbs. mono on salmon rods. Brought many halibut to the surface between 100-300lbs. over the past 15 years using braid as well as an 8-9 foot tail wrapped salmon shark and never felt a need for anything heavier.
    Just my $.02 worth.

    Those that are successful in Alaska are those who are flexible, and allow the reality of life in Alaska to shape their dreams, vs. trying to force their dreams on the reality of Alaska.

    If you have a tenuous grasp of reality, Alaska is not for you.
