The link below seems to have a fairly comprehensive overview of the many aspects of kite fishing.

I would imagine flying a kite from a pier would only work under the proper conditions including how variable the winds are in direction and strength which probably would rule out fly lining (suspending the bait on the surface) unless you used a bobber and released the line from the kite. Also how crowded the pier is would be another factor.

Sure would be an interesting method to explore especially if all you wanted to do was get the bait to the bottom in an area of usually innacessible structure.

Good topic for followup. Best of luck out there and let us know how it goes.

if you need information on kite fishing try sending skyhook an e-mail...

i'm sure he won't mind giving you some info...

he has fished from a few piers and beaches with his homemade kites.

I've done some kite fishing in San Francisco for a few years now. You can use the search feature to find some of the information. Just enter "skyhook + kite + fishing". If you need more info, I'd be glad to help. You can PM me from the Off Topic board.
