People have been fishing for many years for many different reasons. Some do it for a career, some like the adventure and others do it for the serenity that comes from being out on the water. Along with the fun comes the price of the equipment. Boats, gas, parts, poles, nets and many other things can quickly add up. Not many people can go out and afford their dream fishing boat and have enough for the rest of the equipment. Luckily in the recent years, fishermen have started using personal watercraft as a way to navigate through the waters and fish.
One such intrepid fisherman was New Zealand’s Andrew Hill. The Bucklands Beach native soon discovered the potential PWC had to be to become a great fishing platform, that is when fitted out appropriately. Beginning with an “ultimate rod holder” and other subsequent accessories, Hill created jetskifishing.co.nz with the intent of becoming the one-stop-shop for all things PWC fishing related.
In this video, we follow Hill on his Sea-Doo GTX on one of his adventures just off of the coast of New Zealand. He ends up catching a 20-snapper Snapper. This shows that with a little practice and the right equipment you too can start fishing from your watercraft and enjoy the savings. There has been many people who have made the switch and they won’t be going back anytime soon.
