What is possible with modern kayak fishing and how far can
this hybrid sport be taken? Is it realistic to dream of successful
game fishing outings by kayak? How difficult would it actually
be to hook and land a bluefin tuna from a kayak on the great
Southern Ocean? Could these torpedos of streamlined muscle
flip a kayak or tow you out to sea? What about evading hungry
mobs of opportunistic seals? Or is the whole notion really just
an irresponsible fantasy, the product of too many drinks? Keen
Tasmanian anglers have no doubt pondered these questions
before, imagining this holy grail of fishing adventure. Over
the last couple of years in Hobart I decided to seek some
answers. Joining the chase for the world’s most valuable fish
species became something of a quest. Often far offshore on
the wild southern ocean. Alone, in a sea kayak.
