    Curious if anyone uses a jetboat (i.e. Yamaha, scarab, etc) for inshore fishing around the kelp. Wondering if clogged inlets\intakes are an issue?

    If you contact the kelp, yes your inlets will be clogged. However due to the higher water temperatures in recent years, there are not too many kelp beds that have reached the surface, therefore cruise with caution.
