Landing Big fish in a Kayak

Hi Guys,

I had a very difficult time during the Spring Clave this year handling a very large bass in the kayak. The wind and waves were tossing my around and I couldn't get a good hold of a very large fish to land it in the yak. I didn't want to drop my rod in the yak to get both hands on the fish, I was also concerned that is was so heavy I might roll it if I leaned over too far.

How do you land a 3-4 foot long fish in the waves and wind?

What to do with it after that too, run into shore with it? Stringers?

Thanks,
Greg.
