I try to keep my feet inside the yak as much as possible. The only time I sit side saddle is when I am getting something out of the storage crate that is behind my seat. If I have hooked up to a big fish, I want it pulling along the long axis of my kayak (45 degrees on either side of the bow works for me). I sometimes straddle my kayak when I need a little more stability, but I prefer to keep the feet inside. If I need more drag to keep a fish from running into the kelp, I'd rather use a drift chute than my feet. I've grown fond of walking and having feet helps with that. Actually, we don't have much of a shark problem in San Diego, but even a sea lion bite on the ankle would probably suck a little.
