Got a spool of 150 lb braid and am wanting to use it somehow and was thinking I can use it in place of the 30lb Fluoro leader material. Does this sound reasonable for toothy fish?

Yeah, true, I'm just looking for ways to use it since my 8000 series reel broke and I am not replacing it.

You are looking for tangles for sure.

That plus braid won't stand up against kingfish teeth. I've used 80-100# mono for Grouper for lots of years (65 or so) I sometimes drop down to 60 for snapper. Mono is a lot easier to tie than Fluoro--in heavier tests.

When I was commercial fishing, I used 200-300# mono for leaders on my bandits.

Load it onto the biggest reel you still have, and then use a leader for bottom fishing or something. Or use it to hang pictures.
