Here is a way of keeping your kite long-line up on the surface and hopefully avoid snagging over fowl bottom. These net floats were given to me by a mate. They work quite well but you need one about every ten metres. The idea is to have a sacrificial link connecting a long dropper line. That way should your hooks get caught on the bottom you only loose the long dropper line. You really only start to run into problems when you try fishing in unfamiliar areas. In your home waters you generally know where the reefs are!
