Alton Jones is playing it safe, 50/65 lb braid is Ok for that lake, the lake has lots of highly abrassive submerged timber, so to answer your question, do you need to go that heavy ? -----> yes you do.

To answer to your second question;  no I do not throw fluoro in there, I throw nylon or copoly, Trilene Big Game 17-20 lbs or P-line CXX 15-17 lbs test.

I just got back from Falcon we spent the last two weeks of Dec down there. We used 65# braid for jigs and carolina rig (20# big game liter) and 20# big game for senko ect. There is a lot of submerged bushes, tress, and other structure. Especially since the water is so high now.  I wouldnt use nothing less than 20# if you into a good fish or maybe the fish of a lifetime you want to be able to get him out of all the junk!
Have fun its a great lake!!

I'm not the biggest fan of braid when fishing deep with a lot of cover.  Lose to many baits due to hang up.  I would throw 15-20lb P-Line CXX.

Tried the rest, but this is the best - BassResource.com!

Exactly, the last 4-5 years have been years with an abundance of rainfall after many years of a relative drought, for many years the lakes were never full so lots of vegetation grew between the regular level we were used to and the real full pool level, now all those areas are flooded so there 's lots of new vegetation turning it into an underwater jungle, you do need rope thick line.
