Join Braid or just cut it off?

Hi, Have a relatively new salmon rod and i was down the Waimak mouth yesterday morning (dirty water..) looking for a salmon or kahawai, somehow ended up with a knot/loop in the braid line about a cast distance (30 ish metres?) down the line, no chance of untieing it. When the guy in shop set it up for me he said you want about 200m on the reel. Question is, do I just cut it out and re-tie the mono leader on and crack on with a shorter line or just cut the knot/loop out and rejoin the braid?? Thoughts appreciated

when you have a 20kg salmon on the end of your line do you want to be thinking about having two knots in the line instead of one?

I would cut it off or, buy some new braid Cry I am slightly over paranoid about knots however so potentially joining it would be ok??
