One tank of gas has lasted me from sun up until sun down cruising from place to place drift fishing. I imagine if you were running all day long it wouldnt last as long. I have yet to run low on gas though. Doesnt cost much to get out either.



Gene, you know I will be making that phone call for sure. Ur a good bunch of guys and I would love to get back out there with ya and do it up right this time. Keep on tearin em up. You guys are killin me with all those outstanding reports.

I think I have a way of getting a jetski from a beach parkinglot to the beach and back again. I wonder how many tickets I would get for launching a jetski from navarre beach?

Yeah, that's what I had in mind but I was also thinking to use the winch on my jeep to pull it out. :-)

You may just be on to something there. I have considered many options for launching some form of motorized craft from the beach-from small RIBs to adding some form of motor to my kayak. How long is your winch cable? Is it actually illegal to launch a motorized craft from the beach?

I have been doing the same thing for about 4 months now. The cooler setup you have is very similiar to what i have exceptmy rod holders bolt directlyonto the cooler, 3 on each side. About 3 months ago, I mounted a Humminbird 597 color fishfinder/internal gps on it. Works great, will read the bottom up to about 32 miles an hour, after that I think the jet ski hulls just allow to much air to flow under them. I have adjusted, but cant get it to read at full speed.Lots of fun for sure.

The current cable is no where near long enough. But if I find out this is possible I will replace the cable with line that will be ablet o stand the weight but be smaller gauge than the winch cable. It shouldn't take much of a rope at all to horizontally pull a jetski on those monster wheels.

Yeah, but then you have to get a bunch of traffic cones to put ALL the way out to the beach just to keep people from getting in your way. Can you imagine the number of people who would get in your way while trying to winch that thing all the way up from the beach on a weekend?

Hey Russian,

I'm <U>Really </U>impressed with the rig you built for your jet ski !! I just purchased a 2009 Sea-Doo GTI SE,

and I want to rig it up for fishing. Do you have any blue prints or diagrams for the one you built?

Any advice you have for a rookie jet ski fisherman would be greatly appreciated !!

Thanks, zodiac
