I do a lot of fishing from shore (mostly because of weather and time constraints) but I love fishing from my boat.

What the heck is "Skishing".....based on that picture I can't figure out what in the world it is.

Has anybody ever heard of fishing from a jet ski? Seems to me like it could be done.....

nah dude, you wear a pfd and a wet suit and swim out to where the fish are (at night mind you) and sling eels. balls is not the word for it.

Dang Zim that is ridiculous....

Where does the term "skishing" come from though? I could see "swishing" (swimming/fishing).....

Come to think of it......being in the ocean at night is kinda creepy. I remember when I was a kid we went swimming at night and SOMETHING bumped up against my foot and i almost crapped myself. It was probably a striper or something but I thought it was a freakin shark at the time.....

Things certainly do bump into you and will spook you. getting a hit on a calm foggy night can even surprise you. When you get a good fish on they tow you around. This where the term skishing- Skiing + Fishing = Skishing, comes from. Blues are not a problem except for cutting you off or cutting your eel in half. You do get a very different perspective out there at night, especially when you are face to face with a bass. The wosrt is a sand shark, they are worse than blues cause the wrap around your line andtangle it all to hell. Then with you try to grab them, they wrap themselves around your arm and are very strong. In the water you can't brace yourself against anything and have no leverage. Retying and casting take some getting used to as well. Its challenging. You keep your eels in ziplock bags and hoookem right through the bag and rip em out. If you can float on your back in a pool and drink a beer while holding a 10' rod without spilling any and w/o drinking any water then you can probably rety in the ocean at night. When you want to keep a fish, you attach it to the stringer on your belt. The bass swims around and pokes you in the ass and the back of the legs while you drift. Now you are really a chum pot.

I don't know if I can call what I do striper fishing. I think it's more of a random feeding...

I do whatever it takes to catch the creature or have a good time trying. In Texas we fish from the boat on lakes or from boats or shore in the tailwaters. Last year I was fishing for rainbow trout and hooked and landed a fifteen lb. striper on a Wooly bugger! When here in RI or Mass, I fish from a boat or wade fish with a buddy. But mostly where ever I fish for them, I fly fish.

I fish from a small Lund...my friend and I alternate whose boat is used. Usually troll tube n' worm, or fish structure with plugs, soft plastics,etc in the Piscataqua, L Bay, Portsmouth Harbor, Merrimack River, Saco River. Have been out to the Isle of Shoals a few times, but do not know what I am doing out there.
