When using braid do you run a mono leader?

Yes, a mono leader allows for some softer action to allow the lure to hunt from side to side.

I don't run braid on my plug rods. I prefer a high vis mono.......

If the plug is a swimmer, its getting 50lb leader at a minimum.

True Dat!!! No benefit to light leaders. Much to be saved by a heavy leader on a cherished Kwikfish!
