    NEWBIE

    Hey guys,

    Just wanted to start off by saying y'all have put together an amazing site here . I don't have a setup of my own but have been fishing my entire life and have been going either in a boat (which my uncle's own so its one their time....) or on my kayak. Both work good but i'm really intrigued by the idea of PWC fishing!! Sounds both fun and amazing plus your mobility is amazing. I am really interested in getting into something like this and would like to know what all is needed to get started. I'm into ATVing(so turning a wrench is not a problem) and i've been on plenty of Jet Ski's but what would kind would you recommend. I would like for it to be something i could take fishing one weekend then out the the lake for a lil' fun the next. I've heard you can't use jet ski's in both fresh and saltwater but i find this hard to believe (i.e. dont u wash the saltwater one out with fresh water ) anyways any tips or trick and suggestions would be greatly appreciated. THANKS IN ADVANCE AND KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK

    any 4 stroke non supercharged 3 seater would be a good reliable ski for fishing.

    Look for something thats 11-12 foot long, defiantly 3 seater and extra storage is a plus. My set up is posted. It takes me about 3-5 minutes to take off my rack and disconnect the fishfinder then im out jumping waves.

    JSB is the king of salt when it comes to fishing.

    +1 - it doesn't have to be the fastest ski.

    If you're shopping for new or used, be sure to do your "known issues" search on this forum. Nobody builds a bullet proof ski. Also, for fishing, be sure to check the internal compartments for storage. You'll find yourself needing lots more for fishing than just riding.

    Yeah like an 07 Kawasaki Ultra LX. I will even throw in the rack.
    53 gallons of storage, 22 gallons of fuel because of the deep fuel pickup. Mount for a Garmin GPS 60 series.
