    Just getting started, couple questions

    So I bought a new 2011 Seadoo the other day. I couldn't believe how big and stable it was compared to the other jetski i owned. So it got me thinking about fishing off of it . I could launch it myself (vitually impossible with my boat), it is easier to tow, and although my boat has a 4.3 merc v6 in it... it'll get me to the spots quicker

    However i do have a question:

    How do you guys get your rods on it? I have plenty of room for a tackle box up front, but it would be tight putting my pole in there even when broken down. Just curious.

    Looks like this is a great way to do it.

    I was thinking about something like that but would the rods come out on big waves? I boat/ride in lake erie so there are 2-3 footers out there at all times. If you go over thirty you are jumping the waves pretty good.

    Just for starters, and less than $150., you can try this set-up - rod holders and all: http://www.greenhulk.net/forums/show...8-DIY-PWC-Rack And, fyi: I have beat mine pretty hard, although all inland waters; but def bet through the 2 - 3 foot chop. They're now 3 years old and are ready to go for the next trip. Good luck, let me know if I can help, and welcome to the wonderful world of PWC fishing.

    I have small bungee cords that wrap around my reels that keep them seated in the rod holders if/when the going gets rough.

    +1, but my bungees came in a kit and have caribiners on the ends so that clip right to the rod, just above the reel, which keeps them from jumping.
