howzit guys

 

been thinking about kite fishing recently, tort i should give it a try. but before i go out ther and buy all the fancy stuff i had the craziest idea.

build a basic kite with paper and sticks like when we were lyties that kinda kite idea. attach a plastic clip on the kite as to hold the line in place whilst sending the bait out.bait will be a live bait. now do i put a sinker on the line coming from the live bait or on the kite or no sinker. basically i tort of using sumtin simailar to a slide trace for the bait rig. now the thing is  will it work. its going to be kinda hard trying to visualise what im talking, so i will try and get sum images of sum kind added today or tomorrow.

if im talking complete crap and its not going to work, please guys let me know.

 

iv seen sum guys in the toti area doing kite fishing, very professional thou. but they will not discuss with me kitefishing or any fishing coz i dont want to say t, so lets put it this way "not FISHER friendly".

im really interested in this as iv seen guys land sum huge monsters and it will be a fun new thing to try out

 

thanks in advance

 

regards

DK

First off,not all kitefishermen are like the ones you describe,in fact most of them enjoy sharing and are always keen on new ideas.Isorta visualise what you're describing but maybe you should post a drawing of some kind.

Try a search under Aftco-roller troller clip and check out those pics.You will find some interesting posts by various members on here,and remember before the guy who ''invented'' the non-return-slide made his first one, he also toyed around with the idea,and probably also thought it to be silly at times.

If Kitefishing has got you thinking,it must be a good thing.lol .Looking forward to hearing from you on here.

Cheers

Deezy, your plan will work.

Assuming you are fishing with one line? (you may lose your kite)

You will need to have your kite aloft before attatching your bait. Allow sufficient space (between kite and hook trace) so that your kite will still be able to be aloft when beaching the fish.

Sinker - my thoughts will tell you to leave the sinker off and fit a float allowing the bait to sink somewhat, weight the line with strap lead or small lead balls?

Professionals - hahaha we are all professionals!!

@ psy

 

thanks for the reply. much appreciated.

yes i will be using 1 rod with 1 line as per sketch.

you mentioned kite needs to be aloft and i might loose the kite. about loosing the kite - its fine its home made. im trying sum crazy techniques before i buy a proper kite, i also need to enjoy this type of fishin before fully comiting. about the kite being aloft before fitting the bait line..... i didnt think of that i tort hook it up and get the kite up with the bait. thanks, will work on how im going to do it.

i was thinking .50lbs steel trace about 1.2mt fishing for snoek and cuta  behind the back line.

 

make any sense?

ciao

Deezy, measure out sufficient line, say 60~80 mtrs- so that when you have the kite aloft (assuming you have the fish on the beach (the kite being aloft)) and your 'caught fish' on the sand in front of you.

Therefore you will set/connect your fishing line with hook/bait at this point.

This allows you and kite to stay powered for the next bait up. 

 

Am I making any sense?

hi psy....

thanks for the help.
went out this weekend.
tried the setup as per the sketch.
didnt really work out.
guess i need to work on a few things.
basically for one guy to operate the kite and the live bait with the swivel thingy on kite was a problem for me.
had several burn offs
1 decent bite.
ut got alot of work to do.
but in the end was really fun to try sumtin new.
i will work on sum new ideas, check out the current gizmos out the for kite fishing and give it a shot again soon.

thanks to all for there help.
cheers

deezy...no I agree, its not easy not at all.

Another issue to consider too is a rod stand to accomodate kite reel/rod. Here we have fished with the kite and kept it aloft only due to a few Gum Poles well secured on the beach with cement. The pole facilitated securing the rod keeping the kite aloft. Without something so secure one is then burdened to recover the kite or to have a second pair of arms who can mamage it while fishing continues.

Congratulations you got a decent bite!  ::S

Only a matter of time - tight lines.
