Boston Big Game Fishing Club Kite

Boston Big Game Fishing Club Kite

 
The Boston Big Game Fishing Club Kite is well known throughout New England as a force to be reckoned with when fishing large baits. The Boston Big Game Kite is extremely stable, thanks to a windsock below the kite unit that features a mesh end that allows wind to flow through, providing modest resistance.

To make the kite fly to the left or right, just move the center knot ¼” in either direction. It’s a good idea to mark the center of the line with a magic marker so you have reference point. Wet or dry, the Boston Big Game Fishing Club Kite will fly when wind conditions range from 5 to 20 miles per hour. On those days when the wind is really light, the higher the kite gets, the more stable the wind and the more likely it will remain flying. Spectra line has far less wind resistance than thicker monofilament and is a better choice for flying the kite on light wind days. On days when the wind is strong, you can make the kite fly farther behind your boat by flying it on heavier monofilament line (100 LB – 200 LB). You can also hang or secure a large flag (3’ X 5’) on the main kite line 40 – 60 feet below the kite. Standard flag clips will work just fine. The extra wind drag on the main kite line helps the kite to stay down wind.

This fishing kite is not for the faint of heart. Make sure you're fishing a minimum of 80 lb. main line and attach a safety leash to your rod and reel. Legend has it that there are still rods and reels orbiting the earth attached to a Boston Big Game Fishing Club Kite! The kite easily breaks down and is conveniently stored within the windsock.

  Best bluefin tuna kite I've ever used

This kite is awesome! It flies in light winds (5 mph) when other kites fall from the sky. I’ve flown them in 20 mph winds too. It has tremendous pull power for holding up big baits and heavy lines/leaders. If you want to live line medium to large baits for tuna, this is the best kite out there. I keep three of them on the boat in case one breaks off and at this price how can you go wrong? They even fly when they get wet. A couple things to keep in mind; this kite is really powerful so use 80-130 LB spectra line on your kite rod, use a large reel on your kite rod too (like an old 9/0 Penn or larger) and don’t even think about putting one of these up without a safety line attached to your kite rod or you'll never see it again!
