From the people I've spoken to about tarpon fishing from kayaks, fighting the fish is certainly doable, and can tire them out more quickly as they pull you around than from shore/boat. It's the hammerheads you've got to worry about. Some guides in Florida will still do tarpon/kayak trips, but many have stopped due to close encounters with the sharks that prey on weakened tarpon. Watching a hammerhead swim by that makes your tandem kayak seem like a bathtub toy isn't on my to-do list.
