Soft Bait Fishing With Kites
I put my Super Kite out about 1500 yards from
our place on Pakiri Beach in December.
I decided to troll a 9 inch Tsunami Swim
Shad (Chartreuse/Silver) with a 15 foot leader.
Out of interest, I use a handspool
with 150lb breaking strain yellow Power Pro braid as a main line.
Well, anyway, after I got out the 1500 yards I wound it in a couple of hundred
yards and then let it out again, and after a few times of this 'yo-yoing' I pulled
it in and ended up with a nice snapper of about 18-20 pounds.
Photo right: Trolling with softbaits makes a lot of sense.
kingfish and john dory are other likely catches on softbaits.
