I checked out below Big G dam on the wall yesterday.

No bait at all.

The gates being open has the water pounding and swirling back into the wall and dam...plus they had 2 generators going.

However, I was able to hook up several times on some huge strong fish with soft shad imitations. I assume they are drum or something ? I never get to see the ones on my line but I see them swimming the wall.

Anyway, does anybody know if the will every tire out. I held on to a couple for 30-40 minutes each with 17 lb test on a 7 foot bass baitcasting rig. However, I just eventually saved as much line as I could and broke them off.

I assume if I pull my saltwater gear out I can eventually get them up to the bottom of the wall ?

I would certainly be upset if I found out I was breaking off big stripes.
