I have not received my Chesapeake 17lt kit yet, but thought that I might add a fishing rod holder. However I am worried that the torque of a fish strike may damage the kayak. I am not building this to fish out of, but in the waters I plan to use this, there is the possibility of hooking tuna or other game fish that can really be fun. Of course, I can adjust drag, etc. to allow for a controlled strike. I am interested in knowing if others have outfitted their kayaks for fishing and how I might reinforce the necessary areas of the kayak? I have seen 2 styles of rod holders: one is a tube that pierces the deck and is bolted to the deck and the other is bolted to the deck and holds the rod above it.
