Depends on the kid. There are pre-teens I would trust entirely, and grown adults who shouldnít ever be allowed to operate a jet ski at all.

They are very good lures. They make some great wahoo and marlin lures. For most other applications I think they are overpriced. Catching mahi and sailfish isnít exactly rocket science. Donít know...

Out of what you list, I would probably go with the 17# rod. The 30# might be unbalanced with a 4500 reel.

Went out for a bit, with my kid. Only stayed for the first race since heís only 3 and we try to keep trips short and fun. Seemed to be less competitors than usual. Still lots of spectators in boats....

Some people donít need to spend six figures to have fun on the water. Good for him. Probably catches more fish than a lot of people on this forum.

I think it would probably be a good boat for you, but make sure to get a test drive on a day when itís choppy. You really need to experience how the boat handles to decide if itís a good for for you....
