   BASSYAKS ~ The Time Machine

Most of the contestants in the Kayak Fishing ClassicS spend a lot of time on the water pre-fishing the areas of our next tournaments. Scouting an area is a key to success in any fishing tournament and it can take up a lot of time. In a kayak just getting there can do the same. BASSYAKS has the answer for you.

Recently the ClassicS hired an on the water photographer to capture the fishing action for our publications and it was clear that paddling and snapping shots is a tough mix to get right and still be quite. We don’t want to disturb the contestants and certainly do not want to blow a hook up opportunity in a tournament. BASSYAKS to the rescue!

The company provided the ClassicS with a BASSYAKS trolling motor system setup just for our Diablo Paddlesports Kayak. We installed the system in the shop and quickly learned why so many kayak anglers do most everything to their own boats. It was fun and it was easy. BASSYAKS makes a great kayak motor system that is very easy to install and works great.

The foot control steering utilizes the current foot pedals in you kayak by simply connecting a couple of cables. There is a throttle control rheostat for speed and motor direction control, a motor plug-in and a kill switch. There is even an EM option that we suggest you go for to save on battery life. Speaking of batteries we used a couple of small AGM deep cycle batteries and this works just fine for our needs.

Install was straight forward and like I said fun to do. BASSYAKS provides everything that you need to motorize you kayak and does so in a world class fashion.

We tested our BASSYAKS powered time machine and it proved to be much more than we had hoped for. This will save us an incredible amount of time while allowing our photographer to silently slip up on contestants, hands free, for some great action shots. The 30 lb trolling motor put our kayak up on plane at full throttle during our sea trials so going against the wind or tides will be easy work.

A BASSYAKS system will save you a ton of time to do what you are on the water for. Some of our contestants use motors for pre-fishing, none are allowed in the tournaments and many have asked us about the BASSYAKS system. I can say that it is more than worth the price for sure and that it is a very well designed and well built unit.

Get yourself a BASSYAKS and enjoy the Time Machine. We’re glad that we did and we’ll see you in the future.
