The switch has been turned on and we are all ready to go in the Jetskifishing world, Everyone is eager to get started for summer!
Over my decade of Jetskifishing, I have met hundreds of people eager to get started with the sport, most wanting to do it once and do it right the first time, who happily utilize my skills and services to set them up from start to fishing. Although it frustrates me that some still try to reinvent the wheel in our sport, it really sours their experience with the sport, by them enduring more trial and error than just enjoying what we like to do FISH.
If you have been struggling or about to get started, here are some straight forward tips to save you the hard yards so you can do more catching rather than fishing.
Key factors to enjoy the sport:
Purchase a late model 4 stroke is your best bet, 3 seater, 155 plus horsepower craft with adequate storage for your necessary safety equipment and fishing tackle.
The Fishing rig which I use is the Ultimate Rod Holder with a minimum of 4 to 6 holders. Typically I only take two or possibly three rods, as to not over complicate the fishing adventures with tackle in the way when playing fish 360 degrees around the ski.
An important feature of the jet ski fishing rack is the rod holders, and making sure they are in practical and easily accessable locations in which we have several configurations to fit your need.
If considering one of the many other brand kits, think realistic... How many fish will you be really be keeping to fit in your cooler? How much salt-ice expense will you require for each trip for over sized bins? How secure are they and can you ride the ski to its full potential without losing the kit or your gear?
Safety is paramount, I need to be relaxed and have confidence while fishing to get my best results! I carry a fully charged cellphone in a LifeProof case, 5 watt Handheld VHF, Personal Location Beacon. I also support Coastguard services and have membership so I can call them on my VHF when required.
Bait - NO dirty smelly bait! I only purchase and use artificial baits, I have from day one, after being introduced toartificial baits 20 years ago, I have consistent success with a selected series of types depending on our desired fishing location.
Navigation Light, Sounders/GPS units with thru-hull transducers and dual battery systems, all a bonus for building your ultimate fishing machine. Contact us to discuss what gear we use and why specific models suit Jetskifishing more than others.
