Nothing Fights Quite Like A Pollack.
With the exception of a big Bass perhaps, nothing on the inshore waters fights quite like a pollack hooked in shallow water. The fight often starts slowly with the fish not quite sure whats going on. Then they see the kayak and wake up. Setting off like and exocet missile the fish crash dives for the bottom almost pulling you off the kayak. Then you gain some line, but the fights not over yet, again you see the fish and it sees you before another powerful dive for the deep. At times the whole of the rod including the reel can be in the water, and this happens several times before the stunning pollack lays at the side of the kayak.
