Once the kites are ready to fly, find the kite bridle and begin the day with it centered between the two guide marks. For a kite that is flying too high in the sky, shorten the bridle by sliding it toward the kite. This will allow the kite to dump the wind and lower the level at which it flies. For one that’s not flying high enough, do the exact opposite and lengthen the bridle by moving it away from the kite. This change will help the kite grab more air and soar higher in the sky. Beware, though: A kite that’s flying straight up is not working properly. There should be a happy medium where the kite is flying away from the boat so that the baits are spaced apart but in a position where there isn’t an excessive amount of drop-back from the release clip to the water, which could result in missed strikes.
