biggest fish from a kayak?
What's your biggest fish from one, anything, not just cats, tarpon,gar, whatever.
14lb blue for me. Nothing huge but it was big enough to take me for a ride.
Oh, mine is a 35 pound flathead.
24.75# blue on a limbline so no ride, just a big fight.
I haven't caught any yet worth weighin'.
I read an article in the June or July Louisiana Sportsman about a lady from Alexandria who was fishing from her kayak on a no-motors lake. She caught a largemouth bass just shy of 16 lbs when it was finally officially weighed for the 2nd place record in LA.
She straddled it in-between her legs while paddling back. I thought it was neat that record came from a kayak. If she could have had it weighed in a timely manner it probably would have been first. She was a tenth of a pound shy, bass had already spawned too.
Since I mostly fish from the kayak now I"m hoping my personal best will come someday soon. I lost a lunker Wed. as it surfaced and splashed around. Spit the crankbait out and it came flying back into my lifevest hard!

Had a 20#ish blue that was illegaly limb lined. I was trying to set him loose and he gave me a heck of a fight.
Hi y'all! This is my first post here.
Been fishing mainly from my solo canoe for 10+ years, love it.
Switched up to a sit-in kayak and double-bladed paddle a couple years ago. One reason was my right shoulder was about tore up from paddling only on that side for so long. Space is tight but I enjoy the Yak's too.
I've landed a 10 lb Blue, a 8 lb. Largemouth, and a month ago caught my largest Smallmouth bass ever, a 7 pounder from the yak! I was stoked.
This is my favorite kind of solo fishing.
