Wind & Sea: Let’s Go Kite Fishing!



Now THAT looks like a lot of fun.

Offshore angling just got a lot more kino …

Ever heard of kite fishing? It’s an exhilarating fishing strategy that harnesses the power of ocean wind to create irresistible attraction. The kite keeps live baits on the water’s surface, creating a realistic presentation for surface-feeding fish. As anglers deploy the kites, a large surface area across the ocean gets coverage as the bait fish entices the target predator to come up for a quick bite. This technique is most known for catching sailfish. However, kite fishing will attract other species, such as dolphins, mahi-mahi, wahoo, king mackerels, and tuna.

Offshore fishing often comes with a wide variety of winds and sea conditions. Like the traditional kite, the wind will play a role in the kite’s ability to fly. Tigress Outriggers offers fishing kites and kit, fine-tuned for each type of wind, whether light or strong. The options available are the Specialty Lite Wind Kite, the All Purpose Kite, and the Hi-Velocity Kite.

Constructed to fly at wind speeds from 5-15 plus MPH, each design has a sturdy and dependable structure. Simple adjustments on the Lite Wind Kite allow reliable flight in 5-10 MPH winds, while the All Purpose Kite is best in 10-15 MPH winds. The Hi-Velocity Kite, completed with four holes in the custom fabric, allows the kite to fly in higher-velocity wind days. Helium balloons play a vital role on almost windless days by keeping the kite airborne and flying correctly.

Tigress is a one-stop shop for all Kite fishing gear needs. From kites to rod holders and accessories, fishermen can find high-quality gear built to last that also aesthetically matches boats of all varieties. For more information, visit
