I recently bought a Penn Senator 6/0 for shark fishing in the surf. My main line will be 65 pound Power Pro Maxcuatro Braided line. Then I was thinking I need some kind of top shot. I was thinking 60-80 pound mono. I thought 60 so that the braid wouldn’t break, but then I thought maybe 80 because 60 would be to light and cause me to loose fish. Also how long should my top shot be? And is my braid to light?

Anything is appreciated.

I use 80lb mono in the surf and I try to pack on at least 100 yards. You don't want that braid hitting the sandbar. 65lb braid is a little light... but I would stick with it. Just make sure you have enough mono to cover the bar.
