    Jet Ski Fishing Rig

    JET SKI FISHING EQUIPMENT

    Shawn Alladio checking out the Kawasaki Fishing display


    I was at the 2008 Yokohama International Boat Show in the Kawasaki booth in Japan, and the rishing rig caught my eye on their display.


    Fishing is one of the fastest selling features nowadays on Jet Skis, on many coastal and island nations the Personal Watercraft has become the vessel of choice for fishing nearshore zones due to it's economical attributes.





    The four stroke personal watercraft are the most environmentally friendly craft in production today. This rig uses the conventional tie down and anchor points providided in the production models. The stern deck is used exclusively for the rig, so reboarding from the stern woudl be more challenging.

    By looking at this simple system, I could see where there will be friction marks and the attachment points should be checked often in rough water riding. Also, the trolling speed for fishing depending upon the 'catch' is a leisure pace just above idle speed or below 8 knots most often. The big game of Tuna/yellowfin would be about 2-4 miles minimum offshore when the currents run warm in California.

    Probably be better to have a rescue board and test the pole strength holders for larger game.





    A GPS / Fish Finder is added to the area of the glove box, with additional electronic capability. I suppose it is rigged off the stock battery unit.





    The Furno attachment for electrical contact is wrapped around the stern cleat and attached to the rail of the fishing rig itself.




    Here is a side image of the electrical contact, not sure how good this works.

    I didn't try this system, but its a testimony to the interest in fishing with a PWC.

    Lots of my friends ride for fun and also fish when it's good, myself included. Quite a few of them are spearfishing from anchored PWC, which is really cool.

    Here is Velloz off of San Diego, a real fishing super hero.

    Finally tested out my fishing rack... Went to Dana Point last Thursday... didn't catch much (small bass), but did get to cover about 45 miles.

    This is the first of several ideas, and it worked great. It has 6 vertical tubes for rods/net/gaff/flags, etc... and 2 angled tubes for trolling.
    I didn't find the fancy racks out there to suit my needs exactly, so I made my own... (and it's WAAAAY cheaper too).

    After kayak fishing in La Jolla... and seeing diving birds... paddling felt a little slow ... so now I can jam to the fish boils in no time...

    It felt firm and steady in 40-45mph cruise speeds, and no problem in 55mph (gps referenced) speeds. Hopping swells, and trolling a rapala 5-15 mph. Best of all, it can be completely removed... there is nothing permanent about it. In my next versions, I plan to beef up the trolling rod holders (in case I actually hook something big )

    Riding with the gear was fine, and actually helped bring the front up a bit for a smoother ride (stock ride plate), and still bombs around fast. Many times, I forgot I had my gear with me!

    I also carry a folding paddle, tow rope (who know's?), Hand held VHF, whistle, and cell phone, when on the ocean.

    Can't wait to get out again!!

    Lame

    it would be super easy to make your own basket to sit on the back of a PWC.

    Why pay?
