Kontiki Fishing

Recently electric kontiki fishing has become a popular option for deploying longlines offshore, in some areas kontikis are proving to be very productive.

The two kontiki designs featured below are the result of extensive research and development by two different manufacturers.

We advise checking them both out as each has advantages in different areas.

If you are purchasing an electric kontiki check out the best areas to use them first.

Powertiki Kontiki Products

Powertiki supplies electric kontikis, beach carts and kontiki winches. They have a good range of quality products and it worthwhile to check all their products out. Most items can be bought separately and they have a wide selection of ready to fish rigs.

Kontiki history in New Zealand

In New Zealand kontiki fishing has always been a popular way to deploy fishing lines well offshore and catch fish for the table, it's also a lot of fun!

Originally the fishing kontiki in was either a small sail powered boat - about one to two metres long - or car inner tubes fitted with sails.

A peice of hard soluble confectionery fitted on a cord would keep the sail hoisted. This would slowly dissolve and drop the kontiki sail and sometimes release a weight to anchor the fishing line once the wind powered kontiki was well offshore.

Large inflated plastic tubes with a with a bridle fitted to hold them across the wind have also been a popular kontiki method at times. The older wind powered kontiki is seldom seen on the popular beaches these days. Over the last 18 years Paul's Fishing Kites have become the most popular wind powered fishing method because a kite is a lot more efficient than a wind powered kontiki for deploying fishing tackle offshore. This is because a kite flies above ground turbulence and the higer you fly a kite - the stronger the wind.
