Who said Kayaks don't catch Tuna??

The New Nantucket Sleigh Ride


The most extreme kayak angler may be Chicago futures and options trader Dave Lamoureux, who paddles a modified 12-foot-long recreational kayak off the tip of Cape Cod in pursuit of bluefin tuna. He’s had strikes powerful enough to tow him at 15 mph—a contemporary variation of a whale pulling a whaling boat in what Herman Melville described as a Nantucket sleigh ride. In November Lamoureux reeled in his biggest catch to date—a 157-pound bluefin (above). “Tuna are so big and fast,” he says, “the initial hit is extremely violent. I’ve had my kayak cracked.”
