Went today with the goal of catching a 30lber from my kayak. I have been catch fish between 20-25lbs. I get to the river and try to catch some bait, but struggled and only caught one bait. So I was like well I am just going to start fishing. So I paddle down to my spot and put out a balloon and as soon as it got to my honeyhole he drilled it. The fight was on. The fish dragged me a good 150-200 yards before I could get him boat side and even then he was still green. I got him in the boat and estimated him at 30lbs. Biggest yet in my kayak.

Canonman, you need some boga grips. Will save you from getting a hook in yourself and you can weigh your fish accurately. Just for comparison, here is one that just bottomed out my 30 lb boga grips, 36" long, and weighed just over 30 lbs.

Only problem with the boga grip is the scale stops at 30 pounds. They have a model that goes to 60, but it's twice as expensive. A scale that goes to 30 isn't any good for stripers - that's just where it starts to get interesting. \:\)
