I have been using braid extensively for about 15 years. Unlike mono, it appears to be relatively unaffected by age. Visible wear appears to be the primary consideration. As posted above, I periodically trim the business end as needed, particularly if using a sliding sinker above a swivel. Given your season, you should expect multiple years of use.
