I am about to put new line on our reels for a trip to Pensacola where we plan to fish on the piers. I am bringing some fiends who have never caugh a fish. I really want them to have fun. I will bring light and med. tackle. what is the best general line for both type of rigs?

On my light stuff I have 10 pound power pro. On my 704z I have 20# mono suffix and I just put 30# braid on my 302. I fish off of Navarre pier and that is pretty much common out there, 20-30# line

Yep, 10 to 12 lb on your smaller rig for Spanish Mackerel, Pompano, Whiting, Flounder, Bluefish, Skiplack ect.

20 to 25 lb on your bigger rig for King Mackerel, Jacks, Ling and other larger spieces. You'll need around 250 yards of line on your reel for King Mackerel, they tend to leave the scene at a high rate of speed.

Good luck, watch what the pro pier rats are doing and don't be shy to ask for advice. Most are happy to help.
