I am looking for a do it all line for my pond hopping baitcasting rig. T rigs, spinner/chatterbaits, crankbaits, top waters, and weightless plastic like flukes or senkos. I’d assume a good mono would get the nod here, so what do y’all recommend?

If you want a monofilament line I would go with Berkley Big Game. It is cheap and it is a good mono.
I would step up to a co-polymer line like McCoys, Ande or PLine Premium. I like PLine CXX but many don't like how it curls, but it is very strong. I use CXX in 15# test and less for most stuff. I use 20# for large swim baits.
PLine Premium isn't as strong as CXX but it has way less memory.

That is just my suggestion. I don't have a favorite line for everything. I choose the line I use based on the technique I am fishing, same as the rod and reel I use. I don't use one thing for everything.

For pond hopping, 12lb PLine CXX will do everything well.

For pond hopping, you could probably get away with 10lb CXX and possibly get more bites.

I’d do CX premium.12 or 15 pounds. Very limp and great casting. Strong line, not the strongest. And cost effective. $7/$8 at academy. Cheap.

Big Game for sure! For what you are doing it is dirt cheap and excellent line.

10 or 12lb YoZuri Hybrid
P-Line is good stuff, but YoZuri is great. It's right in-between P-Line CX Premium and CXX. It's very abrasion resistant and still limp. Casts well and doesn't have too much memory.

Big game strong and cheap so change it often. Mc Coys copoly is cheap and great line very strong as well.
