What is Kite fishing?

Kite fishing is done using a specially made kite to spread out baited lines and cover a larger area while drifting or trolling. The kite is flown off the back of the boat and tied off at the desired distance where baited lines are then clipped onto the kite line. As the fishing line is let out the clip slides up the kite line pulling the bait further from the boat while keeping it near the surface. This style of fishing is effective for catching mahi mahi, tuna, mackerel, sailfish, and many other pelagic species.
