I spool up Power pro backing, then tie on 25 or 30 lb Mono, then lead core, finally 25 lb Flurocarbon.
The reason for the mono is I like clamping my boards to it, the boards stay on better and mono doesn't chew up the pads on the boards as bad. Also if you are putting on 1 or 2 colors of lead you can spool a bunch of mono on to fill up the reel in case you get a monster on. Just my opinion, but maybe it will help.
As for fishing, slow out of Kewaunee Sat evening and Sun morning.
