Yes, this is the time of year. But it's also the time of year that seas are big, current forecast is 4'-6' thru the weekend.

I don't think it can be too rough.. 20kt wind is perfect. It's not as much fun once it's gets over about 8 footers, but the fish sure do start snapping when it's rough

They're even catching them on the drift boats from what I heard today.

Its rough as kingdom come out there but if you go you'll get 20 shots a day right now, it's basically guaranteed. Hope it keeps up!

I'm new at this so I'm learning as I go, I have a stupid question, I heard people using the outriggers to separate the kites and been able to maneuver the boat with less tangle. How is this done and what do you need to accomplish this. Thanks.

A sportfish will use the riggers to launch the kites. a stainless or brass ring is clipped onto the swivel or snap on the outboard rigger clip, large enough for the kite clips and swivels to pass through. After deploying, the rigger clips are brought down and the line goes straight to the electric kite reel, although they are still led through the ring. Used so that the dirty wind shadow from the "house" doesn't interfere with launching - they are pulled away using the rigger clip rings and then eased up until the first kite clip starts to clear the ring.


maneuvering around a fish with the kite lines led from the end of the riggers does not make it less prone to tangle, quit the opposite! kites love to spin around the end of the rigger tips if left there...


if you are fishing a CC, no, your best to leave the riggers in the garage.
