I use Floro all the time for plastics, cranks, and jigs. First thing I fish water that if often gin clear. Second with sinking baits they will run deeper with less weight. Crankbaits especially just run deeper with sinking line. Since your fishing heavy stained water that's not a factor. It is very sensitive and I can feel everything on the bottom. Third, A lot of our lakes have rough sandstone rock walls and braid just gets torn up by jagged rock. Floro holds up much better in rock. Forth, Not all floro's are the same, I have tried many, and love Berkley Professional grade. I have no problems with it, but it is expensive. Braid often digs into itself and my floro does not. I feel I get more bites with it, and since I believe it, it must be true!
I use braid 50 pound for very thick cover, and Big Game Mono for topwater applications.
Use whatever makes you happy and you believe in. Believing in what your doing makes a big difference in catching. I don't second guess my line. There is no perfect line for all situations, time on the water, and experimenting, will answer all your questions, so just keep fishing. Good luck my friend.
