Video: Watch This Yamaha GP1800 Go Fishing in the Everglades


Man, this clip is so cool! While watching a “Jigging with Jordan” video, I couldn’t stop smiling. His happy go lucky attitude kept me entertained. Heck, I was ready to hit the ‘glades on a ski!

Brandon M. Jordan, is excited to take us on his fishing excursion with him, albeit vicariously. The dude carries all his own camera gear and sets up cameras to film himself from his pwc. His GoPro is attached to the right side mirror. He also has a drone following him. After he loads up his Yamaha WaveRunner GP1800 with several fishing rods and other gear, he gets underway from Holiday Park while the tourists are feeding nearby alligators. The WaveRunner he is riding is fast enough to get him out of any trouble he may encounter. It’s a beast that’s rigged for fun and fishing.

Jordan heads 20 miles deep into the Everglades and reels in some nice pan sized bass and releases all of them after showing them off to us. He recommends carrying a paddle so you can push off from the pesky lily pads. The last thing a rider needs is lily pads clogging the intake, which may leave you at the mercy of the elements. Jordan’s motto is, “Paddle through dirty spots and jet through the clean water.” It’s enjoyable to watch him easily maneuver his Yamaha WaveRunner through the twisting and turning channels within the Everglades. The machine handles well and is much quieter than the nearby airboats.

Jordan points out alligators and reminds us to be careful of the shallow waters. He also lets us know how easy it is to get lost once you begin turning in and out of tributaries. Jordan says he doesn’t get lost because he navigates the smooth handling Yamaha GP1800 through a main canal. Plus, he can always launch his drone to help him figure out where he is. He takes us on an awe-inspiring journey through beautiful territory with lots of water, flora, and fauna. The video is quite captivating and Jordan’s big personality makes it super enjoyable! That GP1800 he’s riding will have you frothing!
