Go beyond boating with Brian Lockwood – better known as Jet Ski Brian, pioneer of extreme Jet Ski Fishing. Zoom into recreational fishing’s hottest new sport with tips, technology and methods personally developed and tested by the master.
With his custom-rigged Yamaha SUV 1200, Brian goes where the big boats go – on a fraction of the fuel and with a great deal more freedom. Check out those rod holders, cooler rack, GPS/Fish Finder, VHF communication and navigation lights. A stickler for safety, Brian has the last word on the latest survival gear and equipment.
An unlikely cross between boating and kayaking, Jet Ski Fishing offers the best of both traditions. Towing and launching are a cinch. Brian’s craft gets into – and out of – tight spaces and skinny water as easily as any kayak. But let the weather break, or the fish start running, and he’s out there quick as a power boat, at speeds over 50 mph.
Brian has fished from his waverunner over a hundred times just in the last year. Most of his fishing is close to home, inshore and in the Chesapeake Bay. But he’s put plenty of time in deep water as well – and brought home more than fish stories. Sometimes it’s Amberjack from 60 miles offshore of Virginia. Another time, it’s a 30-mile run offshore of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, for dolphin.
