It's like a switch has been turned on and we are all ready to go in the Jetski fishing world, Everyone is eager to get started for this season!
Over the last 30 years of my fishing experience and every since the personal watercraft was created, I have met hundreds of people on the water eager to get started with the sport and most of them just wanting to try it for first time.
Always lots of questions and many ideas. I have seen some really wierd setups that just boggle your mind, which is why we started Kool PWC Stuff. We set out to design and manufacturer a jet ski fishing rack that was universal, low profile and most of all practical, so that everyone who wanted to try it, could!
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 enjoying the jet ski fishing sport:
Purchase a late model 4 stroke is your best bet, 3 seater, 155 plus horsepower personal watercraft with as much storage as you can for your necessary safety equipment and fishing tackle.
We would recommend 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 that could get in the way when working that fish 360 degrees around the jet ski.
An important feature of a jet ski fishing rack is the rod holders, and making sure they are in practical and easily accessable in locations that fit your need.
We currently have several (10+) configurations available to fit your needs.
If considering one of the other permanent fishing archs, think realistic... How many fish will you be really be keeping to fit in your cooler? Can you get back
get back on the ski if you fall off ("low profile")? Can you carry extra gas? Is
the rack adjustable when change your pwc? Can you adjust the legs?
Safety is paramount, you need to be relaxed and have confidence while fishing to get my best results! We like carry a fully charged cellphone in a LifeProof case, 5 watt Handheld VHF, Personal Location Beacon. We also support coastguard services and have membership so we can call them on my VHF when required.
Bait is optional - NO dirty smelly bait! We only purchase and use artificial baits, We have from day one, after being introduced to artificial baits for 15 years ago, I have consistent success with a selected series of types depending on our desired fishing location. However we have brackets on the
side of most of our racks that will support some small bait buckets.
Navigation Lights, GPS and fish finder units with thru-hull transducers and dual battery systems, all a bonus for building your ultimate fishing machine.
