When you have a larger fish on, it will swim around and you will have a difficult time controlling it from a kayak the same as you would from a much heavier bass boat. You want the rod to be long enough that you can put the tip past either tip of the kayak so that the line won't bump against the kayak while under pressure from a fish. If you're fishing from a 12' kayak, and if the cockpit is more or less in the center of the kayak, a 6'6" or 7' rod should do this, especially if you factor in the length of your arms.
