Trout & Red Line type advice

I'm looking for some advice on line types to use down in Matagorda bay area for Trout and Reds mostly. While not new to fishing I'm a complete noob to deciding on what line to spool a reel with. In the past I've always used my father-in-laws setups and he's no longer with us.

I just got a new Shimano Stratic CI4 baitcaster and need to have it spooled. I will also need to respool some Curado's as well as a few spinning reels.

I know I will get a myriad of different options but figured it never hurts to ask.

Thanks!

I have the Ci4 and Curado both spooled 20lb braid, sorry forgot brand, but they perform great.

Couple of things I've learned over the years are reds and trout aren't alike just because they both live in saltwater. But if you want one line that can do both it needs to mono. If you decide to go with braid use flouro leader trout can shy away from braid. I suggest 12 to 14 lb.
