How to stop polluting the ocean with balloons when live bait fishing for kingfish. It's very common to rig a balloon on a live bait set up using kahawai for live bait when targeting kingfish. When the kingfish hits the kahawai, the line to the balloon snaps and floats away to pollute the ocean. I have been thinking about this for a while as it becomes obvious too much plastic enters the sea. I am trialling this set up and will gives updates after I've had a go with it but it is a sound approach to keeping your balloon attached but still work.
