There are no cons. Spool up an old Abu with 65# braid and chunk a Texas rig in a brush pile. Can’t do that with mono.

The major con I've noticed is wind. If it's windy you need heavier than normal weight to keep the wind from catching braid like a sail. Everything else I like about it


There are no fish in sonic pond EDIT: Except 1 20lb catfish

depending on the water clarity, and what kind of cover you are fishing, you might not get as many bites as you would with flouro or mono.

You won’t get as many bites as mono and especially flouro... no might about it.

Braid holds water. Freezes up the guides and the spool in winter. Like the guy said, forget it if the wind's blowing.

There is always a noise involved with the braid coming through the water, I feel like fish can hear this. I also feel like it is more visible to the fish. It is fine in the grass and pads since it blends in to the surroundings, but open water and trees it seems to stand out. I am not saying that it doesnt work in every situation, but I have developed my own prejudices to it in certain situations (and I need all the excuses I can find lately).

Imo it makes no difference in bites on most East Texas lakes especially Rayburn, Toledo, Palestine. Brush piles and flipping stumps it's a no brainier. You know they are coming to the boat with braid

I know I sound like a broken record, but BASS & FLW banned the A-Rig - a clear water technique because it was too effective. And it looks like a wad of coat hangers coming thru the water column. I have no doubt that the bass can see & hear braid - just like they can the A-Rig. They can also hear and see 2 treble hooks on a crankbait, but they hit it. If the bait looks real & the presentation is correct, IMO They will bite. I know & have heard all of the stories about how many have proved it to themselves that their catch rate improved with fluoro/mono. I suggest that is totally offset by the times they got skunked using the same technique.


Take a kid fishing.

I used to think that but I fish 65 lb braid at PK and Amistad every time I go and catch as many fish as anyone else.
I just don't think that a fish that is willing to eat a 6" piece of plastic or a 1/2 oz jig cares much.

I completely agree that braid may cost you bites in super clear water versus Flo but Let's see what one of the best in the business says:
