I'm intrigued. Looks like a lot of fun. I have quite a bit of experience at sea kayaking but I wouldn't fish from one of the ones I used to paddle (Meridian and a Nordkapp) as they were not exactly stable. Are your kayaks modified for fishing? How stable are they? Presumably, very if you can handle a 50lb tope from them. What does it cost roughly to get set up?
Presumably you need quite calm water, not the Bristol Channel. Questions, questions...

Have a look here for your answers http://anglersafloat.proboards107.com/

It's the same as boat fishing when dealing with Tope, you just gotta be firm with them when landing.
