fluorocarbon straight though around snags...?

Hi everybody just wondering if anybody uses straight through fc 3-6Lb to throw hard-bodies at structure for Bream?
I have read alot of people on bm like to use 2-3Lb fc straight through to fish the flats, which is good for them but most of my fishing is fishing into structure with the kayak.
Dont have any fc setups and thought of this idea to make my gear more versatile. Any ideas?

Thanks any reply is helpful

Fishing the snags with FC only is a great option. FC is usually fairly abrasion resistant, which makes it ideal for snaggy environments. Distance casting isn't required, so longer casting braid isn't required. Plus it makes lure changing much quicker and more convenient when you get a break off, especially if it breaks at the leader/braid knot. It also does away with the possibility of having a faulty and weak leader/braid knot.

Flurocarbon line is expensive, negating the abrasion resistance.but having said that it does have a useful characteristic......it sinks faster than braid or mono so is my pick for suspending bream lure fishing.

Thanks for the reply and the input on the fluorocarbon line, i think ill put it on a spare spool and see how it goes. As for "fluorocarbon line being expensive" i dont know where your getting this from, i have seen it down to $21 for 200yds.

I have been using 3lb Yamatoyo Famell Spinning Fluorocarbon for a few years now, can't fault it.
