Heres another reason to not just leave your line floating in yhe water... Happened in yhe first 30 seconds on the water... Probably 10+ yards of line.0526201635_HDR.jpg.093b2c6680d9629fc4f9be462adc02f9.jpg

Don't even want to think about what that would do to a cutlass bearing.

Soft thin wire trebles used with a line that testing greater than the treble hooks straightening resistance will straighten  the treble point and free the snagged lure

True but when stripers are involved in currrent they will loose fish.

 

90% of my snags are the leadhead not the hook

It is a different ball game when you get hung up ocean fishing while in a kayak. It can be near impossible to break the leader while fighting the current and wind. When you pull, the kayak moves. Not fun at all.

 

What pound test are you using on a kayak?

 

I avoid using anything more then 30lb test if bottom fishing.

I see alot of people saying "cup the reel" and walk backwards.

I always but 2-3 wraps of the line around my reel seat before i walk back, is this wrong/overkill?

Fine, that would prevent any digging in. Just be careful not to introduce abrasion.
