Can a hooked fish flip your kayak?

I will be hand-lining for walleye but just out of curiosity;

if a 50 pound Asian carp decides he likes my jig what will happen?

I know he’s gonna pull me but can if he swims downwards can’t it flip your kayak over?

how does one stop the kayak if you are being pulled by a fish that you have hooked?

i am not a fisherman but was going to try from a kayak, not a fishing kayak.
