    I was fishing one night at rock fork lake and my buddy hooked into a monster! After about an hour it finally broke 60 lbs spiderwire.

    First of all WElcome To The BOC/SOC. Second look at it this way, that monstor is still waiting out there for you to catch or at least try to anyway.sounds like you'd better get heavier line.

    Welcome to the BOC. It looks like you have someting to look forward to. Maybe you should upgrade to #100 test line. I started this season using #50 braid and got broke off a few times, then went to #100 braid and haven't been broke off since.

    Welcome to the BOC . Rocky Fork holds the best promise of the lakes around here to give up a monster. Every year several people catch bigguns from there.

    yes they do catch quite a few nice ones out of there,and i am always a day late and a dollar short on em too,lol

    my brother managed to catch a 25 over by south beach a couple years ago,but thats as good as we have gotten out of there so far.
