photo_4It’s really a shame that the United States is so far behind the rapidly-growing trend of PWC fishing. Only a week ago did we publish a great bit on Fishmaster’s PWC arches, but as any budding budget-minded fisherman might will attest, spending a clean grand to outfit your runabout might just be a little too rich for the ol’ pocketbook.

That is why we’re excited about Strong Outdoors’ utility rack for PWC. Dubbed the “Pac-Rac,” the versatile 300-grade stainless steel rack can be outfitted for fishing, camping, or pretty much anything on the water. Fully customizable, the lightweight-yet-durable rack can be easily installed on most all Yamaha, Sea-Doo, Polaris, Honda, and Kawasaki runabouts without any drilling or modifications.

It’s stainless construction makes it great for both salt and fresh water use, and even be used for lifeguard and patrolling use. So much so, that company owner Kraig Strom told The Watercraft Journal, “I’m talking to my local sheriff department about rigging them for officers patrolling the Colorado River.”

We’re loving what we’re seeing coming from the US aftermarket in regards to personal watercraft fishing and hope to only see it grow. Keep up the good work!

Thank you to Kevin Shaw at Watercraft Journal for the great piece he did on the Pac-Rac. If you have not checked out Kevin’s site, head over there right now. He has tons of great stuff.
