Largemouth Smallmouth

I need help setting up my line with my reel, I know how to spool it...READ DETAIL BELOW?

Okay, now I'm not a greenhorn fisherman, I've caught trophy sized largemouth/smallmouth bass, walleye, wiper and pike. Also some pretty good sized trout in the Roaring Fork and Frying Pan rivers in Colorado. I've never rigged up my own reel and line for general fishing. I need to know what should be used for a main line and if a leader line is necessary.

I'm using a Mitchel Advocate Silver Edition reel...let me know if i need a different one.

This reel/line set up must be for good size largemouth and smallmouth, channel/bullhead catfish, bluegill, carpie, wiper
yeah i'm 18 and it's something in my fishing life I have not done yet...
Didn't realize it when i first put the details up: the reel is a "Mitchell Avocet Silver"
yeah sorry about that one...I'll mainly be fishing for bass using lures
yeah i did notice all that after I posted the question haha...

unfortunately you opened a whole can of worms with that question. excuse the pun. ok now to Business. the line choice you make depends on what bait you will more than likely use. mono floats and is great for top water and shallow running cranks.floro sinks and is less visible under water. use this for deep divers and jerk baits, texas rig, or Carolina rig or even finesse or drop shot. braided line is best for heavy cover or larger fish. all of the fish species you mention all require different set up. you wouldn't use the same set up to catch crappie and cat fish. if i had to choose one line out of them all i would go with a 12 or 14# floro. that should cover large mouth and small mouth. for fishing crappie i would go with a 6lb floro. for cat i would go for a 35lb braid with no leader. i don't like leaders because of one simple rule. your line is only as strong as your leader. if you tie a 6lb leader to 35lb braid you will only have 6lb of strength. you mentioned that you caught all these different fish i assume with other people's Equipment. you must have noticed that the rods,lines, and lures were all different for each type of fish?
