I sure hope we can get into the cats like that on the 21st. My dad is chomping at the bit ready to go!

The shallow water, light tackle technique I use, typically 8 lb. or 10 lb. test. But I tell folks that unless you know what you're doing, and everything goes right, there is always potential to "get yer heart broke" on a big fish. But if you're patient, you can obviously whip big fish on light line.

However if I'm fishing deeper water, where it's important to miantain good contact with the bottom, and horse fish up from 60 feet deep, I usually use 50 lb. braid.
