    Default Whats Your Biggest Fish

    Ok,
    Whats your biggest freshwater fish from a Kayak?
    My best was an 11.04 Bass, caught on 4 lb test line on the smallest Beetlespin made. It was the second cast of the day and I was fishing out of a 14.5 Native Slayer.
    Whatch Got?

    Thatís a super fantastic Largemouth bass.

    Normally, I only fish the saltwater when kayak fishing, but thereís a place I go thatís a transition zone and technically freshwater. One time fishing that area I got this alligator gar. Didnít weigh or retain it. Caught on a paddle tail.

    On the fly in a kayak in freshwater, I have to think about that one.
    Wherever you go, there you are.

    Like the bad guy said in the original Dirty Harry movie when he made Harry remove his gun at the obelisk during the ransom drop, "My, that's a big one".

    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.

    Really? No one has caught a large fish from a kayak?

    I have caught some good sized pike from my kayak, but I haven't weighed them. Also some nice bluefish, not huge but they fight harder than their size would suggest.

    But let me tell you about the one that got away...

    Yeah, I generally don't take pictures of fish I catch, I try to get them back in the water as quickly as possible. I just fish for fun, not for documentation.

    When I was 8 I caught a 20-something pound catfish. I couldn't reel it in so I kept walking farther from the bank until my dad saw me. By that point the catfish was all but up on the bank and my dad got it up out of the water for me.

    I skinned and cleaned it myself. My dad cooked it.
