Mine was to not fish any line more than 12lb test. This year I had planned on numbers while accepting more break offs.
I didn't anticipate all this thick brush and grass being flooded. I've never fished so much 30lb braid this shallow before in North Texas. Some of the smaller lakes I'm fishing, it's like fishing Okeechobee or Toho from 0-6ft with all the thick cover now newly submerged.
