The Boston Big Game Club Fishing Kite has been well known on the eastern seaboard for many years. The Boston kite is constructed of ripstop sail cloth and is resistant to water so it makes it perfect for kite fishing. The Boston Big Game Club kite flies well in wind conditions from 5 to 25 knots. The harder the wind is blowing the higher (less desirable) the kite will fly. Using heavier kite line, attaching a flag or drone will help keep the kite down closer to the water. You can tune the kite to fly to the left or right by adjusting the center knot to the right or left. Only small adjustments are required. If you happen to dunk your kite, simply rinse it in fresh water and its ready to deploy again. Even flies when wet.
As conditions freshen so does the pull on the kite line, be sure to be running at least 80 or 100# spectra and have your kite rod and reel anchored to the boat. For lighter conditions it is recommended to scale down to 50# kite line for ultimate performance. The Boston Big Game Kite is the one the professional anglers are using to suspend and troll the Yummee Flying fish lure for the larger grade tuna off of Southern California and Mexico.
