Good advice there guys, i have 1 question though.

What knot do you use to join the mono to the fireline? i have done it before but cant remember hehe
Hey Drifter, Top advice above from the boys! I use fireline on an egg beater for sp'ing for flatties and bream! cannot beat it!

Knott, I use the double Uni knott to join them together, most documents/people say use at least 4 loops ( I hope you know whay I mean) but I reccomend 6-8 loops, there can sometimes be a diameter differance between leader and main line, so it's safe to allow for this.
