Watershed Area for Random Point

I took a DEM and made a Flow Direction waster from it, ran Sink, there were some, and ran Fill.  Re-ran Flow Direction.
What I am trying to do is find the Watershed for a random point (not necessarily a pour point).  If I locate my random point and then run the Watershed tool, the tool gives me a very small area which does not seem to represent all the upstream cells that drain to it. 

I found this really helpful link and though the processing extents were my problem, but I made sure to set those properly and I am stillgetting the small area result.

Any ideas or other ways to go about it?
