If you are hooking fish even remotely close in size to what you are claiming, I say don't sweat it... I would imagine that those bigger fish are pretty highly pressured along the MP and getting them on the end of your line is the real accomplishment. Anyone can lose a big fish, happens to me all the time...
However, not everyone can convince them to bite though... sounds like you have a leg up on a lot of folks when it comes to fishing the MPLR and I tip my hat to you...
