    What's your thoughts on triple fish mono in 1mm and 1.2mm for a 100m topshot.
    I have been using Suffix superior in 1.2mm 130lb

    Is this for a trolling set up or a jigging set up?

    What you’re doing makes a difference.
    Different lines for different jobs.

    I’m partial to momoi high catch smoke blue( not diamond)
    It’s very supple, low memory, good for what I do with it.

    Will be mainly bait fishing and a little pulling spreader bars

    Pulling spreader bars I’d be using Berkeley trilene big game. Tough, abrasion resistant, strong.

    Bait fishing, momoi.

    Different jobs.

    How do the 2 lines differ
    What makes one better for bait than the other

    We have only just started pulling gear over the last year or two so still a learning curve for us

    Any other tips

    The Moi Moi is "softer" and smaller diameter than comparable # mono lines so it's not as abrasion or bite resistant as the the Berkley Big Game which is "harder" and bigger diameter than the Moi Moi.

    For bottom fishing keep in mind the longer your monofilament/fluorocarbon leader the less bite sensitivity due to stretch, 100 yards of monofilament will stretch enough to let Mr. Grouper get back into his hole sometimes. On top of that it takes up a lot of spool capacity and that could make the difference on continued fishing with a break off or two.

    I'm a wind on leader guy and I tailor my leaders to what I use them for, bottom, jigging, popping and trolling. Even for trolling my mono top shots are only 30 yards or so, just enough to act as a shock absorber.
