Question Fishing trip

I would like to put together a coastal fishing trip using wave runners. I have a pair and willing to let someone use the other. I was hoping to get a group that would like to fish a variety of locations, coastal Texas & Louisiana as well as offshore, depending on season.
Right now I would like to get to the coast and catch some fish, if someone is interested or has any idea/advice please reply.
Thanks
Bert

Apparently this is in the firearms section, can this be moved?

Sounds like fun. There’s a guy in Seadrift that fishes off his. Gets to the spots way faster than anyone lol. Goes out for a couple hours and flys back to the house when he’s done. I think seadoo makes a fishing jet ski now but it’s crazy expensive.

IDE e all over that!! I don’t have a boat/ski but would love to find some oil rigs and jump in and spear some fish. Rig diving/fishing is where it’s at in my books. I’ll follow thread.

I’m open, I saw the fishing report for rockport being red hot right now. I would like to meet up with someone that has a good knowledge of an area. I know rockport and west bay fairly well, but haven’t fished those areas in years.

If you plan to run the Aransas/Rockport area be careful. There are a lot of no motor zones now. Not to mention when you get in shallow water you run the risk of sucking grass up in the impeller. Use to be a big problem fishing the Laguna. Offshore is a blast on a ski. But I am too old for that crap now days. Have fun.

Ok, I Just finished reading another thread about your back issues, I知 not sure that you should be playing around on a jet ski bouncing over waves holding a bottle of jack in one hand. :0

Never seen anything like that, it would certainly be a lot more stable.

I may need to postpone my trip, in order to move my hunting equipment.
