hi if your kite fishing,use a plastic container with water inside acts like a floatwith this method you can use a separate rod with high capacity reel,,,just use an elastic band to attach your terminal gear to bottle with strong elastic band,,when you have reached your distance,,give a good pull on your rod..your gear will drop free, you can then reel your kite in ready for next trip,,save the risk of losing kite in sea,,if you get fall out hope this of use,,i find it ok for my fishing having already had one exsperiance of realing a downed kite back to shore,,,,HEAVY WORK I find this method ok,,,,

This photo is from the DVD that they supply with the kite which is very helpful and well set out.

Christo1, what is the name of the DVD and do you possibly know where I can purchase it?

Ek het 'n Mullers vlieër en hy kan teen 'n redelike hoek met die wind vlieg, so as die wind strand-af waai kan jy steeds jou aas in kry.

Hier is hoe 'n haai moet wees...

Fris outjie daardie een maat, mens kan sien hy eet al sy weet-bix soet op.

Die voorbeeld is nou gestel, laat on sien wie murg in sy pype het, en Christo, hou op om kites weg te gooi en vang vis.

Hi folks,

I normally use wind forecasts when going for kite fishing. Not so many days, though.

Can you share some smarts on how get into the winds when the forecast is not so defined?

I live about 2 hours from my closest beach.

Thanks for your advise.

Learn to read synoptic charts and get a gauge on your local weather patterns. Synoptics are quite simple, get a good daily one for your area (Auz) and you can see when there is going to be no wind or hectic wind from how close the air pressure contours (isobars) are to each other and knowing your local systems and resident high pressures and passage of lows you can predict directions and swings or changes in direction.

I could tell you how to do it for SA but it wouldn't help you much. Auz should be similar though and you should be able to figure it out and get the relevant information.

http://www.koolasun.co.za/weather/sa-weather-chart.html

There is an example of our local chart. One could at a glance see or predict what is going to happen tomorrow with a bit of background knowledge and experience with it.

Also sometimes you just have to look out of the window..

Many thanks to Dr halibut hoffman !

I'm learning now how to interpret the synoptic charts. IT appears to be very useful, indeed.

I also know about the red sky in the morning suggesting stronger winds to come.

The 2 videos below explain how to estimate location specific wind direction and strength.

you will need at least100lb braided line....the most pressure on your line is when the kite is low,,as soon as release accurs the kite will move over head,,,,and is less strain to reel back because of the change in angle of the kite i use kite and rod combination,,,so after I drop bait,,,i can bring the kite back over my head waiting for next set out,,,this ileviates the possible dropping of kite into sea I usualy send out 15 hooks,,,leave for as long as possible or until your rod cannot stay still,,because of bite's,,,good luck,,,,bob
