    Braid line for jig reel.

    Here's another vote for Daiwa J-Braid ×8. I used original Power Pro for a long time and liked it, but last year switched to the J-Braid on my jig stick. Casts and feels so much better. Braid over straight 40lb mono which I used growing up let's me use smaller reels now for surface iron.

    I marinate my YT and tuna bellies in teryaki sauce then cook quickly over hot BBQ. I like albacore best. The bellies have the most fat content. Some like it and some don't. To me it's like choosing rib-eye steak over filet. More fat more flavor.
