You can have your fluro & wire.
I'd stay with mono unless your tossing expensive bait into a lot of cover ie... weeds or timber.

I personally like the PLine flouro/mono mix when using live bait. I use PP for my main line, then add the PLine for a leader. Otherwise I just use straight PP if the fish aren't being line shy smile smiley

Normally mono in most cases. However, THERE ARE TIMES when the bite is tough (say after a cold front or on very clear water) when the line visibility factor can become VERY important...especially when using live bait. In that case I will normally tie a leader of fluorocarbon..say 12-18 inches on the end of the mono line. So if walleye fishing I might have 8 pound mono on the spool and the last 18 inches of the line before the bait is fluoro. I join them using a double uni knot. This lets me keep the increased feel, castability, and subtleness of mono but also gain the invisibility of the fluoro at the place where it counts. I have also used salt water sized fluoro leader (say 200 pound test) as an invisibility factor when muskie fishing and AT TIMES it has clearly produced more hookups on skis as well.

Good Fishing To Ya,
