new here from Houston, tx

Post  sumo500 on Thu Dec 10 2009, 08:42

Hi, I just recently purchased a 2006 seadoo rxt and would like to start doing some fishing on it.

is it possible to fish the bays in 1-2ft depth with a jetski? given that its kinda loud.

I figured most of the jetski fishermen fish deeper water correct?

thanks

Welcome. Yes, generally most fish deeper waters however I do recall some others in the US talking about shallow water fishing on here somewhere... Certainly louder than running the electric auxillaries as are done on many Bass Boats etc over you way, you may just need to be as stealth as possible. Cast from further away, use any wind to assist with a drift or alternatively use a retractable paddle to move you along the shallows etc.

I am no expert but just my assumptions on what you could do to make a ski effective for the type of fishing you do.

Look forward to any fishing reports that you can share from your ski.

Cheers

Ha ha not really, but enough to know that you can't paddle em that far so using wind or tidal flow will be far easier or just learn to cast further !!! In that depth of water though be careful if using a ski that is supercharged as they don't react well if you suck onto the bottom whilst the supercharger is spooling/boosting.
