Kite Fishing Charters, Gloucester MA
What makes bluefin tuna fishing even more exciting? … KITE FISHING!
In the past few years, half of our hook-ups are from the kite. This works, and it’s awesome fun. Kite fishing allows the captain to dangle a bait right at the surface – this teases the bluefin into rocketing to the surface to snag its prey. We fly the kite to run the line up and away from the boat – somewhat like a “flying” outrigger.
The HIT is INCREDIBLE. The hit – as a bluefin clears the surface to grab the bait suspended from the kite – is awesome. The reel screams .. all hands man their stations to clear lines for the first angler.
Kite fishing makes for many more hookups than other techniques when fishing conditions allow. It’s great to be hooked up battling a fish while others troll by!
