I would often target big chub on the Trent with large cubes of meat. I always used 6lb maxima and a hook length, around 12”, of 4lb maxima to an 8 eyed hook. Like you I used a tucked half blood knot (always 7 turns) and I never had any problems. Don’t overthink things, keep it as simple as you can get away with.
