It depends on what lure you are using, what you are fishing for, and the water clarity.

For the clear water at Cherokee I use 10 or 12 lb test fluorocarbon line.  In muddy or stained water I use heavier 14 or 17 lb test mono line.  For heavy cover I use a 30 or 50 lb braid line.  All this is for baitcast reels.
