Hello, ...NOT sure of exact weight...just saw a picture posted on the West Hawaii paper... Someone caught a 225 lb marlin from a Kayak in KONA, HI..

They said it might be the biggest fish caught on a Kayak in Hawaii...

Aloha,

No thanks to Marlin from a kayak...that's just nuts.

There are actually shark fishers that even use kayaks. Marlins can get huge but near as big as sharks. Most of the success is acheieved by tiring out the fish until it basically dies of over-exertion. I would assume pulling a kayak with full sized person and all their fishing equipment would be very tiring.
