Kite fishing involves dangling a bait below a kite, similar to the one you flew as a kid. Baits are presented seductively near the surface, with only the tantalizing motion of the baitfish visible to the predators below. This stealthy approach gives you an edge in even the most pressured fishery.Though it's usually associated with sailfish, the technique catches marlin, tuna, wahoo, and even mahi from Norcal to Nova Scotia.
Tigress offers a kite fishing set up for every scenario, from near-howling winds to the gentlest breeze. These kites are just what you need to start fishing in this thrilling manner. In the unlikely event that something breaks, each kite includes spare parts so you can be back to fishing in minutes.
For those days when the wind just isn't blowing, Tigress offers a kite designed to work in the slightest of breezes. Built of flyweight materials, the Lite Wind Kite flies steadily in 5-10 mile per hour winds with a simple adjustment to the bridle.On almost windless days, helium balloons can be added to provide additional lift to keep the kites flying.
Tigress' All-Purpose Kite fits the bill for the majority of your kite fishing excursions. This sturdy and dependable workhorse kite easily tackles winds in the 10-15 mile per hour range. When it's nearing a gale, hook on Tigress' Hi-Velocity Kite. This model features four holes in the kite's heavy-duty fabric body to let high winds pass through, flying reliably in winds above 15 miles per hour.
To streamline set up, Tigress offers three pre-made kite rigs, giving you the flexibility to choose the right line based on wind conditions. Conveniently stored on a reusable wrist spool complete with releases, you can get your kites ready to fly quickly as you steam out of port. On days with a heavy blow, put on a Hi-Velocity Kite with a line assembly built of 100-pound braid to handle the heavy pull. If you're going to be dealing with a wind of 10 to 15 miles per hour, attach an All-Purpose Kite with an 80-pound rig. And for the slightest of breezes, use a 50-pound set up with the Lite Wind Kite.
Kite fishing is one of the most exciting ways to entice fish up from the briny deep. Tigress offers everything you need to get started in this adrenaline-inducing fishery, in easy to use form. Once you try it, you'll be hooked!
