You could have too much line on your reel.

braided - I think it takes some getting used to. Now I can not fish with mono - can't feel nothing with the stuff! When I started out I often got tangles. They trick is never fish through a loop. Stop and peel line off until it is clear.

Try using spider wire invisi-braid ultra cast. I love that stuff it's super durable and it casts a mile. I've also never had any problems with it knotting up.

I use power pro braid (I know people hate it) and won't go back to mono. I did just spend an hour working out a major FU backlash but all in all, braid is the future. Tomorrow we are going grouper digging and will have some mono and some braid rigs. Will report the results.

Default Braid

Use PowerPro on all my insure spinning reels. Have to be careful. After each cast pull out a little line from spool after flipping bail to get a flat lie of line..no loops/loose wraps. Too much line on spool will cause problems.
Casting with 2 to 3 feet of floro leader...the knot connecting floro to braid will sometimes catch an eye for a split second...long enough to cause slack in line which could end up in knot as line is coming off so fast from the spool.
Braid vs mono. Cast a country mile with braid and you can really feel the bite. Heavy spinning reel off shore...mono. Reeling in a heavy fish will compact the braid and cause line to dig in between wraps. If fish makes a quick, fast run, braid can hang up inside spool for a second or so and could snap the leader. Lots of charter boats don't like braid as it can really damage props and seals if it gets wrapped.

You might be using to heavy of a line for too light of a lure if you're constantly getting tangles. I use both power pro and suffix and love them both. Also I had to swith to a palomar knot when using braid with lures because the line was cutting through itself when i used a improved clinch knot (fisherman's knot)
