You will really want 200+ yards of backing.. Some do 30 pound mono backing but I prefer 50 pound braid. With the big fish around if you only put 100 yards on you're gonna get spooled. We even got spooled this year with 250 yards of backing. We just get the big 1500 yard spools from power pro and it works pretty good.. Just tie in a splice of mono about 5 foot between the braid and the leadcore to clip the planer board on and you're good to go

100 yards of lead is called "10 colors" or a "full core"

Other good lengths are 7 colors, 5 colors (half core), or a 3 color.

27lb lead is the preferred for big lake.
