Expect a whole lotta different opinions on this one!

Guys with paddle ski's get out more often because it's less of a schlep, so tend to fish more often. There are some excellent paddle-ski fishermen. I reckon if you gave them jet-ski's they must catch more....cover more water quicker. They, however, claim the stealth factor of a noiseless ski is the secret to better catches.

A few more jet-ski vs paddle-ski comps might give us a clearer picture. Especially when some more good fishermen start using jet-skis as opposed to paddling.

Cheers

Both have their positives (and their negatives .. that is if you class paddling as a negative....) it really depends on personal choice...

Being eyeing out my boets jet-ski for a while now. He hasn't used it since about March.
Just today now, he has dusted it off and gone fishing....except at Inanda dam for bass....
Watched a paddler haul in a huge couta on backline at Virginia beach last Sunday morning. Saw his one rod buckle and the ski do an half about turn....on Dad. Looked like he was battling to get it into the hatch...good size. A few mins later he was on again but was a further up the beach so couldn't see what it was! Us okes on the beach didn't even get pecker bites!!!

Negative. Piles and piles of sand...... we would need a flood or another lunar tide to open that up again.

Nature. Some argue that the NCS didnt use their dredger well enough and others are inclined to think... better closed than open. Either way... i still think we should let Nature take its way and not stick our fingers in it.
