Sorry to bore all those none fisherman, BUT I got questions. I am going to throw a spinning rod in and was wondering what type or lb. test should I put on the reel? Do i need any type of leader? Mainly going to use if I see a bigger fish(Tarpon ect.)

Hire a guide and use his stuff. Usually very adequate. Why clutter up the overhead?

cottage1,

For tarpon on spinning gear I would use no less that 20 lb test. If your reel does not have the capacity for 250+ yards of 20lb used braided backing (PowerPro spiderwire & etc) with a mono topshot. As for leader, tie right to the mono for tarpon. For bonefish scale it down to 8-12lb test.
