Default What size should I

What size mono should I put on a Senator 113 Special for Red Snapper? Should I use a combo of mono and braid or will I get plenty of mono on the reel w/o the braid? Thanks for the input.

A lot depends on deep you plan to fish most of the time. I would fill the the real with mono and top it off with braid. The braid will get down quicker and provide greater sensitivity. It will also allow you to use less lead.

Hope this helps!

I would use 50 pound braid and a mono top shot of also 50 pounds.
The braid will give you a much better feel. 113 cannot give a lot of drag so 50 pounds is about right.
I use 50 pound on my little bitty fluke rigs. If something big jumps on it is still coming to the boat.
