Kite Fishing - Frequently Asked Questions

Want to learn more about Kite Fishing? Angler’s World offers our extensive Kite Fishing FAQ below. You’ll find answers to the most commonly asked questions for novice boaters and seasoned anglers alike, ensuring you always have the best experience on the water.

What Is Kite Fishing?

Kite fishing is a unique angling technique that involves using kites to deploy fishing lines and bait over the water. It's a popular method for targeting offshore species, especially in areas where shallow waters extend far from the coast.

How Does Kite Fishing Work?

Kite fishing utilizes specially designed kites that are tethered to fishing lines. The kite is flown above the water, carrying the fishing line and bait away from the boat or shore. The kite's movement and position are controlled to present the bait effectively.

What Equipment Do I Need for Kite Fishing?

To get started with kite fishing, you'll need:

Kite: Choose a kite designed for fishing, capable of lifting the bait and line.

Kite Rod and Reel: Use specialized kite rods and reels to handle the added stress of kite fishing.

Kite Line and Rigging: Strong and durable kite line, along with appropriate rigging, is essential for successful kite fishing.

Bait and Lures: Select bait and lures that are suitable for the target species you intend to catch.

What Are the Benefits of Kite Fishing?

Kite fishing offers several benefits:

Extended Reach: Kite fishing allows you to place your bait far from the boat or shore, reaching areas that are difficult to access otherwise.

Presentation: The natural movement of the bait presented by the kite can attract finicky or skittish fish.

Less Disturbance: Kite fishing reduces the disturbance caused by the boat's presence, increasing your chances of success.

What Are Kite Fishing Rods and Reels?

Kite fishing rods and reels are specially designed to handle the unique demands of kite fishing. They are typically stronger and more durable than standard fishing equipment to handle the additional weight and stress.

How Do I Set Up a Kite Fishing Rig?

Setting up a kite fishing rig involves attaching the kite to the fishing line, rigging the bait, and controlling the kite's movement. Proper setup is crucial for effective kite fishing, and it's recommended to learn from experienced anglers or resources.

Can I Use Kite Fishing from the Shore?

Yes, kite fishing can be used from the shore as well as from boats. When fishing from the shore, be mindful of wind conditions and kite control to ensure a successful and safe experience.

Is Kite Fishing Suitable for Beginners?

Kite fishing can be more challenging than traditional fishing methods, and it's recommended that beginners acquire some experience with basic fishing techniques before attempting kite fishing. Learning from experienced anglers or attending kite fishing workshops can be helpful.

Where Can I Find Kite Fishing Equipment?
