I learn this while fishing with this old timer or rather watching him learn me something. I used to use braid ( I still do for 1oz tungsten weights) until one day on the water I the OT'er was watching me flip pitch punch.. In the pads I'd get hung up and have to pull towards me all the time. he would tell me leave the braid alone so i grabbed a rod with 20lb mono and I got hung up A LOT less and surprisingly I was still able to get the lure back. I've used floro but for some reason it doesn't hold up like mono ( Copolymer).
I would say depending on your cover stay away from floro but if the fish are line shy and it is clear that may be the route you need to take. Or just use Green mono/copo and go from there.. I brought a reel from a guy on here who sent me a bulk spook of 20lb line and I used it one day out of the blue and what I liked about it was the fact that in dirty water, the florescent line could be seen up top.. If you dont like braid i would not recommend floro at all esp for frog fishing.
Catch fish not feelings!!
