That should be fine as far as capasity.Should be no problem with the braid,as long as you,either tape the line to the spool or put on mono backing so the line doesn't slip on the spool, tie good knots and pack the line on the reel tight.. Somehow in my mind I think you are talking spinning reel? Which is fine,just not sure about that rod for bait? What is it rated to throw?If it is rated up to 4 you may want to designate that rod to throwing jigs at them..Fishendude15 said:it can hold up to 325 yards of mono but i have a good 350-400 yards on it of power pro. Is that good?
