Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

This Spring I want to try fishing with Braid Line.

I would like some opinions on what you think is the best

and where to purchase it.

Thanks

I use PowerPro on most of my rods.  My "Panfish" rod has 10 lbs test PowerPro.  My little UL Crappie rod has Nanofil 6 lbs test.

I tied some cheap 8 lbs test mono to the spool as backing, and put on enough to at least cover the spool.  Then I tied an Albright knot to connect the mono to whatever braid I'm using, then continue to fill the spool with the braid.  Most times I tied on a swivel at the end of my braid, and use a mono or fluoro leader to tied my hook/lures to.  When I'm trolling in my kayak, I just use the Albright knot again to tie about 6 feet of fluoro directly to the braid, then my crankbait.  Lately, I've been doing that with the inline spinnerbaits I make as well, as I incorporate a swivel into the eye of the lure.

   Tom...I'm not sure where to look for it, but some months ago there was a big discussion here on this topic
