    I dont see the issue,  he didnt say riding around like nuts on jet ski's.   He said jet ski fishing.    I have contemplated getting that new seadoo fish pro just to fish inshore on.   I typically only fish for flounder inshore, so i think i could use the ski to hop from one place to the next and get on a sandbar and cast.   

    I have even seen them with the mini power poles mounted on them,  you could just pull up to a creek mouth and anchor down and cast.  pop up and hit the next creek mouth at 55mph :smiley:

    People want to judge without taking in all the facts. Waste of my time reading their posts.

    I want one of those power poles for sure. They're slick! It would go nicely next to my live well.

    I would think the guys fishing from them would be a tick more reasonable than the normal jet ski idjit 
    People use statistics the way a drunk uses a street light, for support rather than illumination.

    Anyone can go buy a jetski no doubt. I do agree that only a few actually use them responsibly. Although I am young at heart and love speed, I still need to go to work the next day so I tend to take it easier than most. I've seen a lot of boaters be just as irresponsible with their boat as the folks that you condemn on their PWC.

    I've seen the same mind-set with ATVs.  I hiked for several years with a small group of mostly older university scholar types (I'm not) and they were fanatical.  I rode and loved my Eiger ATV and rode all over the back country on it - responsibly - and knew several others like myself.  With that hiking group, say the word ATV and they'd turn red and start gnashing their teeth like Pit Bulls at a wienie roast.  Couldn't reason with them, either.

    This guy used to post here on FS.



    THERE SHOULD BE NO COMMERCIAL FISHING ALLOWED FOR ANY SPECIES THAT IS CONSIDERED OVERFISHED.

    Same mindset with PWC's in Wisconsin.  My friends and I would have a blast on them and use them responsibly (mostly).  Fishermen up there hated them because teenagers would cut them off at 50 mph fishing a point.  Use them responsibly and they are fine with me.
