    C'mon, Paul, that's the thrill of kayak fishing! :big_smile_2:

    I've never had a ride quite like that, but the few rides I've experienced have been fun enough!

    This is actually quite educational for kayak fishermen, especially on the importance of keeping the knife close by, and adjusting the drag to pull in the fish.

    Thanks for an outstanding post, Dave!

    That was pretty cool. I can see how kayak fishing could be pretty addictive. Could you deploy a drift sock tied to the back of the kayak to help wear down the fish?

    Absolutely! In fact, an anchor trolley installed on the side of a kayak works well for both an anchor and drift sock.

    At this time I only anchor when necessary, since I have been fishing water shallow enough to do so, but the drift sock is on my shopping list.

    Then again, such options just might spoil a good ride! :wink:

    Whatever he caught it musta been big. Woulda been hard to release if he got it in. I don't think I wanna stick my hand in the mouth of somethin like that way out there. Woulda been a cool ride.

    Not for me. I would be afraid I would have a P OEd Jaws on my hands.

    I can't wait untill I get a big flathead to pull me like that. Best I have caught is about a 15# channel out of the yak, it was a blast but nothing like that!

    That is something I have always wondered about. From what I have seen shark fisherman use smaller hooks than catfisherman. I have noticed this watching some shark fishing shows. Makes me wonder if I am oversizing my hooks.
