Hello all sealiners!

I joined sealine today because I have been reading posts for a very long time and learned a lot.

Recently I purchased a brand new setup

Reel:Shimano Saragosa 25000
Rod: Okuma Makaira 14.6 ft

I want to focus on non-edibles mainly( like pylies/sharks) but edibles are always welcome!

Are there any tips on spooling the saragosa 25 000?( Newbie to braid/topshot/straight mono or straight braid)

- What braid/MONO? ( Looked at whiplash/Boss braid and hmp but read on sealine that the diameter is not the same as indicated for whiplash)

- What determines the lb of braid that you would use?
50 /65/80/100 ?

- How would you guys spool this reel for my application?

- If you add a decent mono topshot, would you be able to slide big baits ?

I know these are a lot of questions and I probably posted this in the wrong section,but would GREATLY appreciate any advice as I am very new to rock and surf.

Looking forward to suggestions and tips.

Regards & Tight Lines
