Recently changed out mono to braid line to add line capacity to a smaller reel. The other day I took it out and try it out. The surf was kind of rough but not unfishable. But what turned out to be unfishable was the braid line rig. Although I managed to catch a couple perch on the Carolina rigged grub offeringsI would retrieve a mess at the end of the line, twisted almost every cast and more than a couple times I needed to re-rig. Beyond frustrating and making me re-think braid in the surf.
