Quick Tech: Rigging A Jet Ski For Offshore Fishing
Out-rigging a personal watercraft for offshore fishing use isn’t as expensive as you might think, but then again, to do it right (and have it last), it takes more than a bunch of PVC pipe and contact cement. If you enjoy the subject of jet ski fishing, then you’ve probably seen this outfitted Yamaha SUV before. I often get questions about how I did it or how much it cost, so I thought I would do a post on the subject.
My brother recently purchased a used 2001 Yamaha SUV 1200 just like the one I’ve been using for a while. It wasn’t the most popular ski Yamaha produced, but the SUV is very stable, the engine is reliable and the extra storage comes in real handy. I rigged it up for him and took some pictures of the process as well.

Well if money is no object then...... I built my setup for about $100 minus the gps unit and its great, no pvc. If you have a grand to give it a try then go for it but if you want to try it for cheap this works as well as the expensive setups. One ice chest, two pole holders, 6 d rings, and 4 turn buckles.
