Why are the classifieds gunked up with car ads from a Louisiana company?????? Kinda suks you can't find any other items now.
You can tie it direct or use a fluorocarbon leader material, such as seaguar. I use a 4 to 6 foot piece tied to the power pro. You'll need to use knots especiall for braided line and line to line tieing. I use a Berkley cinch knot to connect the 2 lines and it always works. You can google 'fishing line knots' and find what I'm talking about. I keep a little cheat card showing different knots in my tackle box just to have. When tieing a mirror lure for example you don't want to tie a tight directly to the eye, you want a loop so the lure will have better movement. Here is a link for that knot.....http://www.netknots.com/fishing_knots/rapala-knot/...it's called a Rapala knot.

Hope this helps. I found these at www.netknots.com.
Power Pro Spectra is a great line in my opinion. The 30 lb test has the diameter of 8 lb test and I use the green. Strong yet very castable.
Good one Viper, how did I forget those.
Mirror lures for specks, soft plastics for reds and live bait for flounder would be my choices, but you can catch flounder with soft plastics also. Talk to Greg at The Reel Outdoors.
Also,if your in E.I. then go to The Reel Outdoors, Greg there can help you with what's biting and what they are biting on.
I would get the rod and reel from him ( I prefer Shimano) but use your Dicks gift cards for line and lures. I prefer braided line because it has no streach and you can feel every bump and or bite. Power Pro would be my choice.
As far as the Berkley Gulp Alive, I understand it can't be beat expect with natural baits such as shrimp and finger mullets and mud minnows.Hope this helps.
You should probably trademark the name 'spursuader' before someone else does.
