Listing Detail Tabs

Hundreds of Kontiki's have been lost due to sharks biting through the mainline.

The reason is simple, sharks are attracted to both the baits and any fish caught on the hook section. Having baits and fish on the same line that is used to haul the Kontiki back to shore is very risky. You just don't know if you will get it back.

Now, there is a simple answer to the shark bite-offs and lost kontiki's. It's the New ShoreThing fishing system.

The ShoreThing system is a fully automatic longline setting device which is towed behind your existing kontiki and sets the hooks far away from the mainline. When the hook section is bitten through by sharks, you will only lose a few dollars worth of hooks, instead of between 1000 to 2000 dollars worth of kontiki, hook section and leader line.

If you are considering buying kontiki, check out this system first, it is by far the safest and most efficient way of setting hooks with an absolutely minimal chance of losing an expensive kontiki. Give us a call and we will tell you what you do and don't need for the ShoreThing Fishing System. (You won't need clip on weights, a hook section in your mainline, a 150 meter leader line or a trace rack and traces, these items purchased individually would cost you close to $400.)

The ShoreThing is a dropper rig system that deploys a 25 hook, baited longline offshore when a timer releases the weight on the end of the hook section. The 72 ounces of weight anchors the kontiki much more securely than any other system. The weights are dispersed along the hook section and this dramatically reduces any risk of tangles in the hook section. It actually does all this with around half the drag of a conventional kontiki system, saving you time and battery power.
