Do you have what it takes to enter the Man-Eater Kayak Championship in SoCal? (Taken from the latest issue of Sport Fishing)

I've seen that on a fishing show on TV. These guys will go about a few hundred yards off the beach and fish for threshers. One guy was fishing with a large Rapala but when he missed a strike the lure flew out of the water and straight into his chin. The treble hooks on that thing were huge. These guys would catch threshers from a kayak all day long, and I'm not talking about 30-40lb'ers, they were catching 100-150lb'ers. One guy was saying that if he shark was too big and started to take him out far he just cuts the line.

Fo-To-Shop. That picture anyway. But them cats down south do catch some big @ss threshers from their yaks...but some of those same guys think we're crazy for fishing for sturgeon from our kayaks up here.

That is a funney Picture. I had a big thresher pull me out past the oil rigs down by Santa Barbra one day when I was slow trolling mackerals for sharks in my kayak. I had to cut my line, couldn't slow it down and when I reeled I juat reeled myself closer to a po.ed shark.

Be careful. If you have any air bubbles in the barrel it will burst the barrel. make sure you get all the air out before discharging.

Hilarious photo and definitely Photo-Shopped! *It is illegal to fish white sharks anywhere in California and off Guadalupe Island in Mexico where they are most commonly found though I think they should change this rule for anyone with the balls to try it in a kayak. *The guy with the rod is the endangered species in that photo, not the shark! *As for threshers, they are very docile sharks that don't attack people unlike Hooper's tale in Jaws so its no more impressive than say a marlin or sailfish from a kayak. *Now a shortfin mako, that's a different story! *Anyone watch Shark Hunters East vs. West on the Versus channel? *Maybe they should hold the tournament with kayaks - and see which coast really has the best fishermen! * * ;D

I dont know threshers are dosile when in the water but a marlin or sail fish doesnt have teath when it is sitting on your lap and decides to wake up. I have seen some people get in trouble down in gaviota realing themseves into fresh threshers. On the other hand how impressive would it be if I posted that i hooked into a large marlin that pulled me out to the oil rigs by Santa Barbra, lol.

Sharks have teeth and billfish [spearfish] like marlin and sailfish have spears and they like to stick them into boats when POed

Pretty hard core either species

From my questions, it will become immediately obvious that I am not a kayaker, nor do I wish to be. I am curious, though, about where you put your tackle or bait and where you put any fish you haul in. If you trail them behind the kayak, doesn't that attract predators? I just don't see how you keep from dropping stuff overboard or have enough room to fight fish.

Also, being towed off into the distance wouldn't worry me nearly as much as being pulled under! (If that's possible.)

Some peopleput there fish inside of the dry wells of the kayaks. I put mine infront of my feet on my kayak. Here is a pic of my set up.

I have never had a fish tip me, I have flipped in the surf but I have leashes that I put on all of my gear so I dont loose too much. It takes some getting used to but I have been fishing ofdf of a kayak for over 5 years now, and it is a different fishing experience all together. Im lookin to by a boat in the next year or so, but I am sure iIll still fish the kayak. If nothing else paddling is cheaper then gas, plus that trip in the picture took 3 hours from the time I left home to the time was done unloading at home.

Very impressive photo taylor_31! [smiley=thumbsup.gif] Those are some big stripers, where were you fishing? I guess I should be able to tell by the shoreline in the background but I can't
