    How much shit did you end up dropping in the tide?

    Na, altho was never very sereous about fishing from it. Caught a fair few brim tho(Snapper under about 40cm for you north islanders). It had a small glove box thing you could bung a bit of tackel in, and a bucket thing in the front for beers. It was pretty stingy on storage compared to most, more of a race ski than a cruiser.

    I have an Ultra 150 i brought cheap with a poked motor - rebuilt it and will trade in on a 3 seater and setup a fishing rig on it.
    Rack with chillybin and rod holders and jam a fishfinder in the glovebox.

    Ive worked on a few RXP Seadoos and they have enough grunt but not 100% convinced on stability of a RXT as a fishing rig - the Ultra 250/60 might be a better option but they are a few $$ more

    If its rough enough to worry about stability you should be doing jumps and power surfing not fishing!
    Just dont do what I did and try to jump off the back(same direction as the wave) of a 3.5m swell with a full tnk of fuel.Ended up nose diving into the back of the next one.Hold breath and pin it submerineing it untill I popped out the front
    One day out playing in the rough could actually see schools of brim surfing in the swells

    There was 1 at the Okiwi Bay camp last week, never took notice how everything was attached but it had a chilly big, rocket launcher, fish finder and other gagets
    If its guns, tits or tyres it's going to cost you lots of money

    Hey Guys, I'm new to your forum and have been fishing off a jetski for 4 years and love it. The sport is growing very fast in NZ and spreading around the world. We also have just set up the NZ Jetskifishing Club and I host the all jetski, King of Jetskifishing Competition based out of Auckland. Drop me a line if I can be of any help getting into the sport.

    That photo looks VERY familiar, Andrew. Did you just have an article published in NZ Fishing News? :-)
