Have you ever tried using mono ? You should be fine and may get more bites. I use it on all my bite leaders.

40-50lb for Taylor blues / trout /puppy drum/ whiting etc.

80-100lb if you are targeting bigger fish ..I’ve caught several smaller sharks less than 5ft in same day using 80lb -100lb mono and no break offs.

Good ole trusty mono….depending on what you are targeting, you can go lighter than 80lb…50lb would be fine for alot of species. Puppy Drum etc.

Certainly don’t need 80lb for bottom rigs that are used for catching saltwater pan fish (whiting, Croaker, mullet, pompano, trout, blues etc.) 20lb-30lb for your rig.
