I am heading to El Salto in early December with a group for 4 1/2 days. Question is what is the best momo for top water fishing?
Anything better that Big Game 20#?

The best mono on the market is McCoy's Mean Green. You have to order it online. Superior strength, castability, and low memory. I used BG for years until a former Pro Angler (and my mentor) turned me onto it. Its expensive but worth it. For bass fishing I have never had the need to go heavier than 17 with McCoys. You get 17 hung up and sometimes you have to wrap it around a cleat and break it with the trolling motor. Usually the hook will break or straighten before it breaks. LOOK OUT! scared

Yes. Big Game is full of additives. Original Stren has no polymers and floats the best. We use 25# on all our spooks in Mexico.

Big game sucks, hate that line now. I use copolymer silver thread, great line.

Big Game is a good monofilament line but a copolymer line is better. McCoys Mean Green, P Line, CXX and Voltage are all better than Big Game.

I used Trilene XT 20# for top water fishing last Dec. on El Salto. I also used 30# Fireline for rattle traps and Scrounger jigs and then I used 25# BPS Flourocarbon for the weightless flukes. I also had 65# Power Pro on another reel but never used it.

Pline CXX is good also. I would stay away from McCoys Mean Green. That stuff easily breaks like sewing thread.

Sunline Super Natural


This stuff is the absolute best! Their turnover rate is really good so you know all the line Sunline is manufacturing is going to be fresh. It's very strong, limp and it lasts longer than Big Game IMO. I've gotten bad spools of Big Game before as well. I've yet to find a reason to hate Sunline Super Natural Monofilament. I promise you won't regret buying this line.
