Q: I’m nervous about targeting larger fish species from a kayak. What would you advise?

GR says: Go for smaller fish until you are very comfortable with your own limits and the kayak’s limits.
There seems to be a push to target bigger and meaner species as the years wear on, but I would advise anybody that is apprehensive about any aspect of kayak fishing to progress in very small steps. Most of the larger captures are made by very experienced kayak anglers. They are very much something for newcomers to aspire to but some common sense should be used.
