    So had my Rods out around 70Yards. Picked up a bite that took me out 230Yards and around the island until eventually it snapped.

    Got an achievement for losing my first Boss fish on the lake but was frustrated.

    Is this Normal? A glitch? Or just maybe i need stronger tackle, anyone else had this yet. I was willing to bide my time but the fish was steaming around that island, couldnt gain any line back whatsoever.

    I've had this happen too on the 25lb line (previously strongest). I noticed now there is a 30lb line, so I'm going to try that out to see if it helps. Also I have previously caught 100lb catfish on the 25lb line, but something has broken my line at 230 yards more than once now.

    Makes sense, i was using 25lb line.

    The worst is the Achievment for losing a boss fish, makes it far more frustrating

    Ive found no matter what set up you have on, if you hook into a big boss and it takes off then theres no stopping it no matter what, even with the strongest tackle.

    As far as I know there’s only 230yrds of line on the reel so if you do hook a big one it helps if you hook him closer too you so you have more time to tire it out before it reaches the reel limit. For example, if you’re already playing a fish & one your other rods goes off but you are still fighting the one you have on the other fish ends up getting to far away for you to get it before it reaches 230yrds
