Thinking about getting into big water trolling B-10, big blue for salmon. What type of line braided-vs-mono do you guys recommend. Was thinking about 50 lb power-pro, is this ok or should I step it up a size to 80, I remember that I was told once that with braided you should go a lot heavier than your normal mono size. Oh ya, I'd be pulling divers and flashers, like delta divers or deep sixes.
Thanks for the input.

Mikey --- We recently had a great day with Chris Vertopoulis, and I noted that he used 60-pound Power Pro (or something that looks just like it) and 50 pound Maxima Ultragreen for leaders. And hugantic stainless hooks, presumably so the fish don't swallow as many. Must work, as we landed every fish but one.

the reason that folks go with heavier super braids is to help prevent spool dig-ins. 50# is a good place to start.
