thanks for the tips guys....Have caught lots of fish from the kayak....stripers, bluefish, albies, bonito up here and variety of other fish in other places.....

Have also caught bigger fish...tarpon, tuna, sharks....from boats....just wondering about the two together...I know the conventional guys land some pretty big fish from the kayaks....LARGE sharks, sailfish, roosterfish....so figured there's a shot.

Agreed that lifting is an issue, and it's hard enough to land a big striper on your own while seated, so I'm not yet sure how to handle something even bigger without breaking a rod or tipping...certainly thinking of the smaller guys if there's a chance....

Maybe I'll stick with the 12-wt for now, target the "little" guys and see how that works out....
