    usually 12-20 lb test 15lb to be safe that what way if you want you can still use lures (generally 16+ test is too much for lures.)

    also i like to run steel leaders incase you hook into something with teeth.

    I was going to suggest 12-15 as well. Steel leaders are always a good idea.

    What you fishing for Hung? Reds, Snook, trout.........

    In Florida I always used 15lb test.
    Even if your lucky enough to hit a big run of tuna, it should suffice...

    That is what I call good living! I usually drive out to wilmington with 3 or 4 buddies and charter a boat for 12 hours. We caught so many yellow fin Tuna the last time that we brought the boat in a few hours early. Each cast returned a fish within a few minutes....It was nuts!
