Maiden Voyage of the Green Ghost & Sapo - Video - Pics

Well, I have been working a lot of overtime the last 4 weeks so I decided to get a kayak. I got the "Ocean Kayak Trident -15 Prowler".. I have taken the Malibu twos out playing in the surf during winter swells 3 times the length of BHP, but have never fished out of a kayak. So I am a total newbie at this... I hope to join up with other kayakers if possible and learn from their experience. My Instructor " Team Buddhahead" is going to show me many tips and tricks to kayaking in the near future.. Here's a short video we made yesterday in the surf south of BHP....

I see photos of guys that caught 40 and 50 pound fish in yaks. They have them draped over the side. I think it would be a hairy ride if a big saltwater fish hooked up on you. How would you keep the yak pointed straight and not drug sideways?
I have been looking at Wilderness yaks for fresh water river fishing. Still uncertain at this point. A lot of guys fish out of them around here.
Who picked out the color.

Good luck....have fun with it.

Like Rag, I've seen pics of guys that have caught big fish out of kayaks up here. Mostly halibut and king salmon. They say it takes a long time to land the fish and to paddle back to shore.
