  A hand line would give you no drag

If you hook a big fish you are at it's mercy dragging you around. It would not take much force to tip you out of a Sea Kayak. I watched a guy trying to land a large Yellowtail off the CA coast in his SINK. He did ok when the fish pulled straight away from him. When he got it close to the boat it wipped around behind him and over he went with all the gear.
