What Braided Fishing Line Should I Use?

We recommend using monofilament when targeting kingfish unless you are planning on catching them with vertical jig. Many people catch kingfish while vertical jigging using braid, if you want to vertical jig we recommend using 50Lb braid (not just for the kingfish, but other fish you may hook along the way).
