So I am new to the area/forum and wanted to see what feed back I get from people that have been here for a while. I am getting ready to spool my penn squall 50's with 50# yellow Ande Monster and wanted to see it this seems like a good choice for the fish in the area as I will be out at the nipple and spur a lot trolling? On my 30's and spinning reels I am looking at 50 lb. braid for bottom fishing. Does this seem like it will be enough or should I look at going up a bit?

Id back it with 65lb braid/hc and run a mono topshot. For 95% of things youll be fine but if youre going to spend a lot of time deep, you never know when a big blue decides he wants a piece of that islander with a ballyhoo! Even then itd be exciting and probably wish you had something bigger but at least he wont spool you before you can grab the rod out of the rod holder!
