No need to spend the $$ on Fluoro.... I use 80lb mono, and crimp ends. I often fish alone, and have found that if needed, I can hoist a large fish over the gunnel by the leader, and can also more easily "re-crimp" while tending to the rest of my responsibilities (driving the boat, slugging my coffee, etc
). Not to mention that these fish are chasing groups of bait being dragged by large gauge stainless steel umbrella frames... these are not leader shy fish. IMHO fluoro is absolutely unnecessary for bay fishing.
