You don't need to fish with cable you will catch way more with 8lb Berkeley clear mono and your set. Don't go green or florescent just plain old clear.
You need a decent rod and reel and set the drag right but putting on Braid that's four times stronger than the fish your going for is just rookie and you know the rest of us are laughing and thinking do you have that shiny Shimano jacket also?
I do change my line a lot but I just think it goes with getting ready to head out on a trip and mono does not last long so change it often.
I've fought salmon musky you name it on 8lb mono. It's called drag boys.
Last trip one person used 12lb the other used 8lb and the score was 1:12 so go figure, same lures same everything except the line size.
