I run 2-3 kites, never more then 250 yards away. It makes it seem as if there is way more action on the surface. Assuming you run 3 clips per rod, I'd rather have 9 baits close together then 3 in 3 spots. Usually my flat lines get hit, I keep them rather close. I just know every captian I've ever met says that when they see kites far away they troll by and take the fish that are around the fish flapping.

But fish how you like, as long as you enjoy it
