Agree with the guy who said at least 20lb because you never know what will bite. It's also good for dragging in big chunks of oysters. Those invertebrates can really put up an impressive fight.

i only use bait casters and have moved from 20# to 30# and noticed zero loss of casting distance but improved durability.

I think the difference in casting between 10 and even 15 pound is huge. I hate casting the 15 or 20lb stuff personally. It's just a lot thicker and more coarse and catches the wind more, I really just don't need braid any stronger than 10lb anyway. But that's just my opinion.

30lb Power Pro in high vis yellow on all my inshore conventional gear. The heavier braid on a bait caster has a negligible effect (and some advantages) and gives me the ability to easily handle a big poon when they crash the party. I don’t use fluorocarbon. Trilene Big Game works just fine.
