55lb daiwa boat braid. should get about 300 yards or just shy. on a private boat in the gulf you should be fine with that. i dont think fish can breathe as well with a mouth full of popper so that helps too!!
as a side note, you dont need color coded line for popping, but you can jig with this reel too so for not a whole lot more $$ i like using it. you can also put 100yds of coded line on top if you prefer.
