  It's Got To Suck...
  Posted by: sing on Mar-18-10 6:34 AM (EST)
 

trying to pull in a keeper size striper with a "hand line..." Heck, last summer there were several occaisions, I was nervous trying to pull in 3' plus stripers even with the leveraged help of a fishing rod because I was on the edge or a channel, because the wind was blowing me towards rocky shoals, and one time because of the 3' plus wave action breaking over the reef I was fishing. I had my rod on a leash and was ready to drop it at any moment to get my hands back on the paddle.


I started off salt fishing in my sea kayaks and even my SOF (thank goodness, never hooked on while in the SOF). Frankly, I think the sea kayaks are not great fishing platforms. If one wants to drop a "hand line" and play "survivalist" in a kayak. Well... yeah, deal with all associated challenges to go with that.

SOTs rule, IMO, for ocean fishing.
