How many of you are based SOR and are there any jetski only ramps in Perth

 Having fished off a yak for many years elsewhere, im seriously considering buying a ski next year as opposed to a boat. I'm wondering where most people launch SOR and if there any jetski only launching ramps??? And for those that fish in winter what do you wear to keep warm and dry in winter?

Plastic pants and rubber boots LOL or would this be taking it too far

As for clothing, im gonna invest in a wetsuit for winter,

Welcome to JetSki Fishing

Thu, 2013-11-21 05:49

Welcome to JetSki Fishing 'Old Salt"- I'm just about ready to head out now,going to be chasing after some tailor on the reefs around Cockburn Sound.

I usually launch from Palm Beach boat ramp,I find the launch jetty's there are a lot lower in the water,and are more jetski friendly than the Point Peron ramp jettys.

I fish all during the year,and Winter is easier to find good size fish in the metro area,from Snapper and good size tailor on the reefs.

For clothing- I tried the full body wetsuit gear,it's too uncomfortable on the Ski,when you are out there for several hours on the Ski.You do not want clothing that restricts you movement.

I use separate long pants and top. Here's a link to what I wear- It's lightweight and warm:

I also went form Yak fishing to Jetski Fishing,and I'm enjoying fishing more now, than when I had to paddle out to the reefs.

Enjoy...The ski is on and I'm out there!

 Good upgrade. I've had most

 Good upgrade. I've had most things from Hobies to tinnies to 3 Ton boats and thus far I reckon a jetski is the best.

If your launching from the river and heading out of the heads, Leeuwin ramp next to Zephir cafe is the best. Just had an upgrade and is 3 ramps and 2 finger jetties. The only downside is the amount of boat traffic it sees that causes lots of wake and wash, AND the $12 parking!

Winter I'm not too sure about, maybe wear a Onsie or something...

2 piece Wet suit

seems to be the answer. I winter fish with just a waterproof Jacket and shorts, but am definietly going to check out a 2 piece shorty.

 

cheers

Just got back- couldn't fine the tailor this morning, but the squid were on the bite.

Only kept three,as that's all I need for a feed when they are this size:
