I drove out past San Luis pass and hit Christmas Bay to do some wade fishing this past Saturday. Got there about 6 am and waded out along the shoreline. About 2 hours into my wade (very peaceful and quiet) UNTIL some tools on jet skis decide to terrorize the bay. The whole **** bay and they choose to pass back and forth in front of me by about 75 yards. They were also towing some little screaming kids on a tube. I drove over an hour to get to a quiet spot and to enjoy some fishing. I have nothing wrong with kids having fun, but does it really need to be done where people are wade fishing??? I might get bashed for this, but man I was really p****d off. All I could do was wade the 200 yards back to my truck and call it a day.

Sadly those TOOLS don't fish themselves or they would know a wader needs quiet to trick the fish into thinking his lure is a real fish or fly.

I don't see why you should get bashed for expressing your opinion.

Very true... just a family out having fun, I guess. It seemed to be a dad with his wife on the back of the ski and 2 kids in the tube. Just really sucked that they had the whole bay, but insisted on passing back and forth right in front of me. I tried waving them down several times, but had no luck. I had a bright colored shirt on, so I'm certain I was visible to them.

On a positive note... that jetski Brian guy has a couple of sweet setups on his skis.

yes he does RMD! i plan on using the same lowrance gps as he does.

And on another positive note, I ordered my first BllyStix rod today specifically designed to use on a jet ski

I have had good luck with Yamaha over the years, I like the non supercharged models because the have less maintenance and better fuel mileage. There are several people that fish off of Sea Doo's also. It is not the jet ski that can be a problem, it is the operator. No different than owners of guns, cars, motorcycles, boats ect... The ski these days are four stroke, very quiet and stealthy, great for the flats drifting. Here are some of my rigged skis.

I support both Yamaha & Seadoo. Both being great machines, it's all preference. I choose the new Seadoo and it works perfect for my fishing needs.

I drift the shores, anchor fish, etc. and I do it without being rude or bothering other fishermen in the bay.

I have fabricated a fishing rig for the jet ski that takes less than 5 minutes to instal, has a live well, and when you are finished you pop the cooler off and you have a cutting board to fillet your fish on, it will be out on the market very soon, keep your eyes open for them. No drilling screws in to your ski of any sort. I had a 18' wellcraft and have enjoyed fishing off the ski this summer more than the boat,maybe that's because I can get where most boats can't.

I have a question regarding Yamaha/Other Makes vs Sea Doo.

Aren't Sea Doo's radiator cooled, thus can run in shallower water vs other makes?

Recently drove my friends brand new Sea Doo Wake 155 and I was nothing short of impressed with it. This is the one with "braking" and has the ability to basically sit/idle in one place without moving from the jet.

I could see this capability being invaluable while fishing.. Not to mention the sucker pretty quiet, stable and had a good amount of storage. Also had a slick pole that recessed into the hull that would make for some good options to add rod holders or something.
