I decided to finally upload a video overview of my Yamaha fishing ski due to popular request.

Haha fair call mate, different kettle of fish really compared to a yak. I actually did a bit of fishing off a yak long before I got a ski, I wasn't a fan of all the paddling to go not very far but it definately has it's good points

Good video and setup. I had some serious customisation done on my ski shortly after I got it and have no regrets. Your GC accessories look sweet. 

Your lures etc aren't very accessible. Have you considered a box mounted on the chilly bin or anything else?

I never envied a JetSki, seen a few boats I wouldn’t have minded but the yak is too awesome.
But that is a pretty neat set up. I have the HDS Live 7 on my yak love it.
Enjoy your adventures!

MightyBoosh - Most of the lures I know I'm going to use I keep in the storage under the rear seat so they are easy to get to... The bag of tackle up front is generally stuff I'm not expecting to use but I like to have it there just in case... That is also another use for the tray inside the chilli bin. I don't usually find myself changing through a hell of alot of lure types on the water

All good Coxie. I don't like leaving lures attached to rods if I'm travelling any great distance, so am always clipping them on/off.

Kayak vs jetski. Different game. I was as a hardcore yak fisho for 5 years prior to getting the ski. Each has advantage and disadvantages. Someone smarter than me once said that every vessel is a compromise and I've found this to be true.

Yep you sure can't beat a kayak for stealthiness, but one of the things I enjoy most about the ski is how far it can take you
