PUTitinYOURmouthFISH Posted December 15, 2022 Share Posted December 15, 2022 This is something I've considered for quite some time and haven't had the time to gather considerable data myself. @Darth-Baiter inspired me to post it as I saw him mention it elsewhere as well. Do you factor kayak wind drift/fish pull when fighting a bass and how you choose your power/action for tackle? I feel like it must contribute some to the system fighting the fish, but how much? Too slow/light of a rod lose enough hook setting power to warrant a step up in either? Only adjust drag to make up the difference? Pitching/fipping from a kayak - even worth it? I've been pulled forward hook setting and fighting very average sized fish, and especially if there are even a few lilies in the way I can reel myself right to a fish in the pads haha. I often find myself reeling quicker and moving my rod to avoid slack in more open water and the yak starts being pulled/drifting. Faster reel for kayaks?
