Id say single strand also. It's pretty tough.

Ande mono in 50# works awesome. I actually used 60# on my last outing and hammered the Spanish all one a single lure. No worries about kinks, swivels, etc.

I use 40-50 lb mono, no swivel. I like the cheap BPS line for this. You'll lose a few Got-Chas but catch more than you will with wire.
