Default Line capacity

Over spring break, I'm lookin to catch some Kings and maybe some cobia, will 260 yards of 12 pound test be enough, or should I out on around 300 yards of 25# braid?

Good luck finding 25# braid. You'd have to buy PE rated JDM line to get 25#ish test.

If your fishing from the pier, then 15-17 mono for kings and 25-30 mono for cobia, or 40-50 braid for cobia.

12 to 15 will be fine for kings if u have 250 to 300 yards mono works better off the pier as far as cobia u want a different rod stiffer holding 250 to 300 yards of 30 to 50 lb braid or 25 to 30 lb mono and dont forget a light rod holding 200 yds of 10 to 12 braid or mono for bait spanish or pompano if u only have 1 big reel use 15 and fish for kings it will land a cobia just hard to cast a jig with 15 or 20
