DeepSouth, maybe we can get out there sometime and go offshore for some fishing. Did you hook your bottom machine directly to your battery?





All plans I found on the net and came up with, without any real drawings just chicken scratch. Here is a link that helped me out a lot http://www.jetskisportfishing.com/. Only thing is you have to join the forum and make two post before you can look at any of the post, but in the Garage section there are some good ideas and tutorials. Im still adding things to mine, its a work in progress. Where are u out of? Might be able to get together and help you come up with something and go do some fishing.

I fish out of Pensacola.

I will get you some pictures of how I mounted mine. I am wired directly to the battery. I had to make a bracket for the transducer because I didnt want to do put any holes in the hull. The only permanent holes are where the display actually mounts. I have the display mounted directly on top of the 'glove box',using plastic cutting board material as a large backing plate (works great, you can still access the glove box). The mount is very sturdy. I will be off the week of the 4th, give me a yell and we can fish.

Nice rig! I've been fishing on my jet ski for a while now, never fished out in the gulf though. I have to say, it's actually a lot of fun!

Pretty slick, Might have to try mounting mine the same way, Trying to minimize holes in the hull. I need to get a new glove compartment top though, the latch broke on mine. I will have to get a hold of you when Im back in town in a couple weeks.

Default trying it out

Wow, JS F, you made a great rack! Here is my non-committal effort so far while I research what I might want to do. Almost nothing invested and nothing permanently built or attached but it has worked for 3 or 4 trips including some fast running over choppy conditions and it stays put. I have had to re-tie tighter twice on choppy days after the cordage wetted out and stretched. I don't really trust it and assume it will fail eventually but wanted to try PWC fishing without committing to anything yet. So far I like it.
Ps. I have already learned that the coolers are too small. Your size seems right.

Hey guys,
I just bought a waverunner and I've decked it out for fishing, cooler rack, fish finder, etc. I was wondering if there are any jetski fishing groups out of Destin? If so, I'd love to join. My ski is dependable but would love to have the added benefit of a group.
Happy fishing.
