Getting a rig set up for surf fishing and have a nice beefy reel I scored at a yard sale and an old 8.5 foot salmon rod for starters. Will go for a longer rod if I find that I like it.
Question is this: What is best for surf fishing, mono or braid?
Seems briad would be the way to go as I could get lots more on the reel with the added strength to boot, but mono is all I have ever used and am comfortable with it.
What would you experienced surf casters recommend?
