2500 Would be fine unles there something different in the 3000 that you like better (line capacity, drag difference, gear ratio) most of those should be the same but I'm not sure.

As far as line I would be using braid if I was you. This eliminates line capacity issues and will be better in vegetation which you said you fish a lot. Something along the lines of like #15 or #20 power pro.
Is it worth putting on a flouro lead? The lake is fairly clear, definitely not stained so I worry having braid in the water would deter bites and/or investigation of the lures.

I don't ever worry about fish seeing line, however some do. If you are concerned about that aspect you can use a leader. However you better tie a pretty good connection knot, especially if you are fishing vegetation. About the only time I might worry about fish seeing my line is like Okoboji Lake in Iowa where you can see like 15' down.

Iíve found the fg knot to be the best knot to connect braid to a fluorocarbon leader, but the thing is a pain in the butt to tie. It takes me 4-5 minutes and Iíve got lots of practice with it. I like the improved clinch for my leaders as it is quick and super strong. The braid encapsulates the fluorocarbon and it goes through micro guides easily

I think for now I will just use as clear of a braided line as I can. With all the grass and weeds I don't really want my line and bait sinking all the way down. I've just been tossing out a senko and wiggling it around for a minute, then reeling back in. May try a spinner though as I didn't get any good bites at all last weekend.

I did connect with a swivel though... maybe that gave things away.
