There are some big fish in watauga. We lost a very heavy fish during the fish springs tx. Hooked it at 60ft and couldn’t move it for about a minute then it pulled the hooks from a large jerk bait. Pulled the same jerk bait on a diver last Tuesday hooked a fish in the same area as before. He pulled drag on a big diver rod on the hit so I gave it less drag. Fought him about 2 minutes before I started to put some pressure on him. He made a very violent shake and broke me off. Always use 12 lb fluorocarbon May have to go up to 14 next time. I stopped using snubbers but I’m thinking about going back To them. Big fish seem to like the big baits but I also caught 2 five pounders on a 1inch spoon last week.
