Nearly any large tackle center that sells kites will also carry helium tanks and balloons. However, newcomers to kite fishing might be confused about or intimidated by how to correctly attach a helium balloon to a kite, deploy it, and drift or slow-troll with it. And because of this, many will forgo this option, which could be a costly choice. Remember, the basic premise of a kite is to hold baits right at the surface, where splashing and distress vibrations telegraph long and far, and toll in game fish. It also enables more baits to be placed into a spread. And in some cases, a kite is used to precisely position a single bait - like when fishing from the beach and dangling a bait over a trough or even dropping one into holes within lush vegetation.
