In Topic: Can anyone recommend a 10lb and 30lb fishing line?

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.

I'm sure it is Chrome.
I've had the pleasure of hooking up on lake O a couple miles out.
The fight and power of a nook on a 100+ feet deep waterbody , totally non comparable to 3-4 ft deep river encounter.

Your missing the total basics .
Line strength has nothing to do with how fast you land a fish.
The whole movement towards 11 to 15 ft rods is the ability to use 4 - 6 lb test.
Lighter line equals more hook ups.
Look at the rod as a giant shock absorber.
Matching rod specs with quality reel and line is the goal. And an art in itself.
Have seen to many people over the years suffer exploding rod syndrome. Lol
