Nice fish PK, with the braid I wouldnt worry about the line shy thing when using spinnerbaits, traps those are reaction baits. I use braid on everything including slip bobbers and yum dingers. The only exception is when I am finesse fishing in ultra clear water. I still dont think that it matters that much, after losing a few fish on Geneva last year with flouro, I grabbed my pole with 10LB PP and still caught fish. Basicially I am not 100% sold on the line shy dealio.
Also when pulling out a snag and conventional methods dont work I will put my hand over the spool and point the pole towards the snag and take a few steps back. Either your line will snap your hooks will straighten out or you will pull out whatever you snagged. That doesnt tax the rod or the drag. I have pulled quite a few large objects out that way even a fire extinguisher with 10lb Power Pro. I used to like fireline but as it got older the braid would start to unwind.
