Sea-Doo Ambassador Wins at the Central Florida Shootout


The Central Florida Shootout fishing tournament was a huge success for Sea-Doo. It was the first time a PWC division was included in a mainstream fishing tournament. PWC anglers competed in the mix with conventional boats. Sea-Doo Fishing Ambassador Emmanuel Williams won the kingfish category with his twenty-pound king fish.

Williams got the win in the overall category, beating out regular boats and taking the win for the PWC division. It wasn’t easy to get the win. Conditions on the water were rough with a three-to-four-foot ground swell and stiff east winds making for choppy conditions.

The fishing took place more than 20 miles offshore. This gave the Sea-Doo operators the chance to prove themselves worthy of going up against the much larger fishing vessels. The guys who fished inshore on PWC’s were able to get deep onto the flats where they reeled in some large sea trout.

The biggest win of the day was showing that PWC fishing belongs in the competitive sport fishing community. The wins further cemented this idea.

Sea-Doo has made tournament fishing more accessible to people who want to get into sportfishing but don’t have the money for a fishing boat. You can get a loaded FishPro for a fraction of the cost of a conventional fishing boat.

A Sea-Doo FishPro is not only less expensive to purchase, but also a lot less to maintain than a regular boat and you have everything right there on the ski.

Sea-Doo is stoked on the success of Williams at the Central Florida Shootout and the group hopes this encourages more anglers to buy a Sea-Doo and go after their dreams of being pro fishermen or just plain fishing from a FishPro. Check out the highlight reel here.
