All mono for the kids. I have one small reel loaded with 15 lb power pro, but I keep a barrrel swivel on that and tie flouro leaders to it for lures.
I use an improved clinch or palomar for the snap swivel. My knots seem to be holding much better this year. 15 or so stripers Sunday, not one knot failure. We'll see how my tying holds up when I hook that first 20 or 30 pounder though!!!
I sincerely hope to hook into a nice cow with the kids Wednesday. I'd love to see at least one kid beach a big girl. I have kids saying things like "I can't wait to do this," and, "I'm pumped for this trip." Coming from a population where a high compliment is, "that didn't suck too bad," I'm just plain tickled.
BTW, we have a bus with a DVD player. The first movie we're watching on the way down is Stipers Gone Wild.
