Bait caster not nearly as often and always full spool.

So how often do you replace you line? I find that while trout fishing and using lots of spinners on a spinning reel. That I change my line every two weeks. I've noticed this has helped me cut down on birds nests. The $7.00 I spend on new line every other week is worth me keeping my sanity.
Switch to braid and use a fluro leader.
I did that last year and noticed no difference in catch rate.
Everything else I use braid. It gets switched end for end every year. Unless I only used it a couple times.

I use braid and fish every day Two times a year spring and fall unless something happens and I have to change it in between.

I change my line every year. I use PP braid on one and trilene XL on my other main rod. I mainly use the PP for when I get into the heavy stuff when searching for bass and the elusive "potomac pike"

Looks like I'm going have to give braid a chance on my trout gear. I'm thinking of going with 6# Sufix 832. It supposedly has the same diameter of 2# test. You don't think I'm going to light, do you?
You can go up to 8 or 10. Lures will still cast a mile compared to the mono. I use 8# braid and then use 4# or 6# fluro. Some days I just tie a spinner right to the braid and still catch fish. Stock trout are pretty stupid.
