I fish those same river mouths in my kayak. I carry 50' of anchor line and have a buoy attached just below the clip. When I hook up with a giant red, I can let the anchor line go and chase the fish - after the release I paddle right back to the little buoy and clip back onto the anchor.

Ditto. My main line is on a kite line reel and fixed where the line can be taken in or deployed through anchor rail. The kite line reel has flotation also. My backup lines are wound on electric cord organizers.

Default I do it a little bit differently.

I use my home made "loss proof anchor" with 550 cord for anchor line. I made a reel out of 2 FRIZZBIES back to back. There is a disc of hard foam between the two FRIZZBIES that provides lots of flotation and makes room for more line.

I use a JAM CLEAT to tie off my line. I can release it instantly. The FRIZZBIE reel floats so I can dump it to chase a fish or in case of an emergency where I must get un-anchored quick. I do not use a trolley.
