For dropping.baits all you need is a set of windsong single.line kites.

Trim and tilt amd tack all possible and adjust according to prevailing wind.

I use either my rigged Saltist or a Tor 50 (both rigged standard for shark fishing) to deploy and retrieve the kite.

So get a.windsong like I've been telling you for 3 years and use the Saltiga or even a SL50 to deploy and retrieve the kite.

No new kit, no.special it just a set of 2 kites, low and high wind.


Hoor nou you tjop?!!

Tie the kite to the rod.

Get it to fly to where it is in a stable air stream, normally 80-100m from you.

Insert the outrigger clip into the kite line..... either cut the line and tie each end in or loop swivels into the mainline and use snapons to connect the clip.

Attach your fishing rod leader (using loop taped onto the leader (half way up the leader)

One person lets the kite out slowly while you hold the rod and bait in hand. Till the full leader is out of the guides.

Walk to the water's edge.

Drop the bait onto the water (timing between swells)

release the kite fully and out your bait goes a hop skip and a jump

When the rig is in the area you want to drop it. Stop releasing line from the fishing rod but leave the kite to pull till it stops, ie now the fishing rod is holding the kite. Strike the fishing rod which now pulls the fishing line from the outrigger clip.

Bait drops in the water and you retrieve the kite to drop the next line.
