This fishing style was born on the East Coast from Montauk. Crazy looking fun right here!

Looks fun but hell no I ain't doing it. Wonder how the coffee grinders work soaked in water.

van stalls/zbass reels are built specifically to withstand and perform while in water. East coast reels made for surf fishing for stripers. I wouldn't want to skish out here with the grey tax man lurking...maybe skish in fresh water?

Isn't that what we all strive for? The glue that holds that man together. Skishing. Awesome.

Probably not. I have friends who would fish on their surfboards at SanO and I didn't think that was a good idea. I still have reservations about bobbing in the harbor.

Thanks for sharing it takes all kinds.

So let's do it! Looks like a blast. San o sounds like a great place to try. Even if there are juevenile white sharks there. There still eating fishing, not seals yet Wink

These guys usually go at night when sharks and boaters are less active. You would really and I mean REALLY have to know the tide shift, wind, waves, and other weather conditions before you head out. Also, going alone is just plain stupid.

I can't really see a point in doing this at a lake. lol plus what lake do we have around here that allows you to swim around the entire shoreline. DVL? haha!!!

It's insane fun though. Imagine hooking a 30lb yellow or a 40lb WSB in the kelp? lol would be a hell of at time!

Speaking of which, are there any watertight baitcasters on the market?  Spinners are a given, but they cost a few arms and a leg.

Skishing, would I do it. Feck no! I like the pouring rain and the brutal conditions he says.
I bet he liked it when when sister Mary Francis spanked his ass in the 9th grade also.

I'm with you there dlobo!
I like pouring rain when I'm at home watching thru the window with a cup of coffee in my hand.

This was on that "Extreme Angling with Erik Young" show...
Despite Erik making it look like fun, I will pass. Not so much because of the shark issue, but it seems like a "big fight", would be you just gettin' pulled around in the water? I want to fill the fight.

Years ago I would wade out as far as I could to reach behind the swells/breakers. Neck deep, bobbing around. It wasn't very effective, pretty unrefined really.
It wasnt swim fishing, per se, but it was close.

I like the guys mental attitude best. And his wife? Not only is she beautiful, smart and supportive, but this:
"I hope it feeds his soul."

Wow

Would I do it? Probably, with those guys as guides.

This is a fishing style that I want to try before I become a old guy with people that depend on me. I'm just imagining how awesome it would be to horse a yellowtail out of the kelp.

I should probably be offended by the "old guy" crack, but your good character evinced by the, "before people depend on me" comment makes up for it.  Thumbs Up 

These guys are probably safer doing this, than a lot of other activities they could engage in. My one concern is they are in a notorious shark corridor.
While it's true, statistically, that most people survive shark attacks.... Well, I don't really wanna become part of that data base.

I was really big in to surf casting and skishing before I got in to fly fishing 3 or 4 years ago. I definitely miss the rush of it and will probably start doing it again some day. For now, it is hard not to grab my fly rods over spinning rods. Big fish on a fly is just something else and really gets me going!

Looks like the reason float tubes were invented.  No, thank You!

BTW, sharks are less active at night???  In Hawaii they tell us tourists not to go in the water at dawn or dusk; shark feeding times!   Shocked

And wouldn't swim fishing be Swishing? How does the "k" fit in?

Lol you shouldn't be offended by the old guy crack. I was talking about the future me. I'm not .too knowledgable on the feeding habits of our local sharks, but I would say that if your tight in the kelp you shouldn't have too many problems.

Oooo! Did you ever have any close encounters with the toothy critters? What's your PB striper and bluefish on this fishing style.

It's not for everyone, understandable. No clue on the activity of the sharks at night.

It's called skishing because when you hook a large fish it pulls hard enough to make you move and with fins on you're kind of skiing in the water=skishing.
