"slub silk" sounds familiar...  had a really cheap silk long-sleeve -- felt like thin, lumpy combed cotton
excellent for thermal undies, if you don't like the feel of synthetic fabrics

Berkley Big Game is mono though.
It's mono that is produced in tremendous quantities and if you've ever filled dozens of reels from monster sized spools you would have seen this and/or flat spots in the line -those are called slubs and what Berkley is notorious for.

Standard Albie plan:

Trollers: 4/0 sized reel with 40# mono, feathers, plugs, bars with multiple lures, cedar plugs in the wake. 2-speed nice for winching in plugs that have a lot of resistance....if you go enough your 4/0 reel will get dumped by a mystery giant, likely BFT so some troll big reels hoping....someday....

Bait after the troll stop: 3/0 reel with 30# mono and again, low speed reels for bait or trolling. 2-speeds will winch 'em to the boat faster...can make the difference as the boat only stopping once or twice all day is common.

People cast anchovy sized iron on w/e they have. Not established, afaik, that albies will hit poppers.

Hours of boredom interspersed with a few minutes of madness is the tuna game. Maximize troll stops: let the troll fish hang and get chunks and bait in the water to try and hook a few more and keep the school around.

All of the above can be fished with braid too if you have modern reels with instant AR, ideally.

note- lot of difference between Ted's delicious albacore and "false" albacore we have on East coast- while they fight hard, they are barely sharkbait.

An appropriate reel for albacore?
The man called it an albacore special for  reason! The fish haven't changed.
