Re: Tropical Lines Question
This post is probably too late. For the Tampa region, I'd go with a braided core tropical line and not a hard mono core line. The hard mono core lines are best suited for extended periods of baking in the sun on a skiff deck and are hard to control otherwise.
They also have a greater tendency to coil and twist than braided core lines regardless of temperature.
You'll have to check the specs on each different line as Rio, SA and probably others make both types.
