Anyone hand-line fish from a sit-in kayak?

I’m a day-tripper, but I have never fished from my kayak.

I don’t want a rod and reel; I want something simple, cheap, and compact to fish with.
I asked about a pocket-fisherman but was shot down.

So how about something even simpler; a hand-line with a hook on the end?

Can I catch a 20 pounder without being dragged all over the place?
I have never caught a 20 pounder and don’t think I will anytime soon. Realistically the fish would be 5-10 lbs
