Maxima ultragreen 4,6,8,10 lbs mono been using it for years I fish jigs 98% of the time year around from finesse jigs to
Jigs up too 3/4 oz oz it tie jigs in many different styles. I never feed the bass the same jig pattern I have 8 rod out all the time and they all have different styles of jig I like fishing Rocky structure brush piles trees and isolated structure when I'm out fishing. Jigs and Yamamoto trailers. Best way to go.
Deep targets in winter light line nothing is better than that.

Mono (actually co-poly): McCoy's Mean Green

Fluoro: Seaguar Invizx

Reason for both: Supple, very manageable line. Pleasure to cast. Yes, as with any other line, they do start to coil after being on a reel for a while, so when that starts happening, replace and enjoy happy casting again.
Fishing is not a matter of life or death.
It's more serious than that!

It's really hard to beat a premium monofilament line, Nylon or copolymer. Nylon blended with Nylon is considered mono these days and another grade or another polymer like polyuerathane is considered copolymer, all are monofilament lines.
Fluorocarbon or 100% fluorocarbon is also a monofilament line called fluorocarbon line to set it aside fron Nylon mono or coploymer line. Add coextruded hybrids like Yo-Zuri or FluoroClear another monofilament line meaning "single filament" and confusion starts in.
Super braids made from spectra fibers braided with 4 or 8 carriers finishes off the full spectrum on line insanity.
1. Mono, all types, stretch nearly exactly the same % per lb test rated by diameter.
2. Bass are not line shy fish so low light refraction fluorocarbon is nearly useless.
3. Abrasion resistance, knot strength and impact strength are meaningful.
I use Betkley Big Game mono for crabkbaits and change it often.
Sunline Shooter and Seagaur Tatsu FC for jigs.
5 lb Maxiuma Ultra Green for finesse.
Finns PRC 60 lb green for heavy cover
25 lb Sunline Armillo Defier Nylon for swimbaits and wake baits.
The above works for me.

I have more fluro tied up then mono these days. I still will use Mono leaders to braid but my jigs, senkos, dartheads etc.. Fluro. Mono leaders for topwater, some cranks and some swimbaits - on my spinning the Stren Flurocast has been a favorite. For Fluro Triline 100% Flurocarbon Line and Trilene Nano Braid, for the bigger braid Finns.

I use mostly Fluorocarbon line because it lasts longer between changes.

Sunline Sniper is my go-to Flouro and has been for years. It's excellent as a leader or mainline, very easy to manage. Assassin and Reaction are tied for 2nd - though I really only use them for leaders.

It's been ages since I've used mono as a mainline, when I did it was usually Maxima or P-line.

P-Line Flouro-Clear.
Strong / supple / knot integrity / works well spinning for casting applications. low visibility in water.

I, too, have been using regular P-Line fluorocarbon for years now. Mostly 6 lb test which does fine on smaller spinning reels. Never seems to break. Maybe our bass are too small!!
