    If you fish on a party boat on the East Coast, they don't allow braided line for chunking and you got to use only mono. On a party boat, you need lines with good abrasion resistance. Don't use any soft line as your soft line is the first to get cut if you tangle with ohter guys's lines. Andy 80 lbs is a good choice. You can tie hook directly on your main mono line or attach 8-12 ft 80 lbs fluoro carbon leader line using a barrel swivel.

    Here is a goood information on tuna fishing on a party boat on the East Coast.

    after using Izorline, I have yet to find a line that matches its quality and strength. I use the XXX copolymer on my light stuff and have cut myself many times trying to break 12# test... I imagine the 60-80# is bulletproof.
