DIY - Winterize Your Yamaha Four-Cylinder Outboard

21-Oct-2021

Yamaha offers a popular line of four-cylinder four-stroke outboards that are used in a wide range of single and twin installation applications, in both fresh and saltwater, all over the world. From pontoons to center consoles, bass boats to work skiffs and even water taxis, they are great performers and real workhorses. The most popular are the F90, F115 and F150 models, and many are used in climates where they are taken out of service for the winter months. 
 
While there’s definitely merit in having your outboard winterized by a certified Yamaha dealer, the process is simple enough for owners to do themselves when armed with the right tools, products, and a bit of proper education.

“Life-Changing Moments” Take Yamaha Pro Darold Gleason From Pond Fishing to Bassmaster Elites

08-Oct-2021

Following Long List of Toledo Bend Guides into Pro Ranks
 
Whenever Darold Gleason has a few quiet moments to reflect on his career as a professional fisherman, his thoughts always return to a five-pound largemouth he caught when he was seven years old.  It was the Yamaha Pro’s first-ever bass, and it hit a bream he’d just hooked on a live cricket he was fishing under a cork.

Failure, Gumption, Determination, Passion

23-Sep-2021

Krista Miller proves women can become successful charter captains, too!
 Captain Krista Miller runs a successful charter business, Island Charters, off St. George Island in the Florida panhandle. The quiet area is a highlight of the state’s “Forgotten Coast” and a peaceful retreat for many families year-round. Krista stays busy booking up to two charters a day for over 10 captains (including herself). Her path to success was not easy, but the lessons she learned along the way gave her the motivation she has today. 
 

Planning to Camp this Fall? Consider Camping on your Boat!

23-Sep-2021

Fall is in the air and with cooler weather on the horizon, many plan to take in the beautiful scenery while camping. A great alternative to the traditional campground is camping on your boat. It’s safe, inexpensive, fun and promises build memories that will last a lifetime.

Versatile Topwater “Poppers” Work Well for Fall Fishing

21-Sep-2021

Yamaha Pro Bobby Lane Believes These Lures Will Catch Bass Anywhere Right Now
 
Among his peers in professional tournament competition, Bobby Lane is best known for his skill using spinnerbaits and Carolina rigs, but when water begins cooling in the autumn, the Yamaha Pro often changes to a topwater popping plug. Usually considered a summertime lure, Lane actually keeps a popper tied on throughout the fall months.
 

The Quest for the Ring-Atlantic City

24-Aug-2021

This July, NFL® Hall of Fame Coach Jimmy Johnson brought his popular Quest for the Ring® Billfish Tournament Series North to the New Jersey resort town Atlantic City, and with it the opportunity for many tournament teams that have not experienced that level of competition and excitement to get in on the action. 
 

Iaconelli Checks Pro Kayak Win Off of His Bucket List

20-Aug-2021

Yamaha Pro’s Victory Comes In Final Minute of Competition
Michael Iaconelli has won a Bassmaster Classic®, an Angler of the Year title, and too many other bass fishing events at every level of the sport to list, but the Yamaha Pro recently added still another title that really has him excited. After three years of trying, he won his first professional kayak bass tournament, and he did it in pure Iaconelli style, catching the winning fish in the final minute of competition.

Her well-earned Master Tech title helped give her a solid and successful career in the marine industry.

Yamaha Presents the 20th Manhattan Cup

30-Jul-2021

For the third time in the past four years, Yamaha proudly sponsored a very special fishing tournament – The Manhattan Cup.

“Our initial involvement as a supporting sponsor in 2018 gave us the opportunity to learn more about the event and the volunteers who make it happen,” said Martin Peters, Yamaha’s Sr. Manager of Government Relations, Communications and Dealer Education. “We were impressed and made the decision to take on the role of presenting sponsor in 2019 and again in 2021.” 

“Stars Have to Align Perfectly” to Make Bassmaster ® Century Club

21-Jul-2021

Long before he became a fulltime professional bass tournament angler, Patrick Walters created his own bucket list of goals, including joining the Bassmaster® Century Club. That meant weighing in 100 pounds or more of bass during a four-day Bassmaster ® Elite tournament.

Scott Martin ‘Starting Over’ After 20 Years of Professional Fishing

25-Mar-2021

Even though his professional fishing career began in 2000, Scott Martin describes his 2021 season as a “new beginning,” and now after his third Bassmaster® Elite Series tournament, the Yamaha Pro has two goals.  He wants to qualify for the Bassmaster Classic, and he wants to win the Bassmaster Classic®.
 

Safety Gear Review & Maintenance

24-Feb-2021

For most of the country boating is in the deep freeze or at least curtailed due to winter weather, but we are all looking forward to warmer weather and the upcoming boating and fishing season, and that means this is a great time to review your boat’s safety gear, something that should be done on a regular basis. Yamaha always recommends safe and responsible boating practices, stressing the importance of having adequate safety equipment onboard and maintaining it in good working condition. With that in mind, let’s review the U.S. Coast Guard required safety gear for recreational vessels and what to look for to make sure it is in shape for the upcoming season.
 

Early Parental Support Leads Logan Into Professional Fishing Career

12-Feb-2021

As Wes Logan made cast after fruitless cast on a cold, windy February day on Alabama’s Jordan Lake, he remembers getting so tired he put down his rod, zipped his life preserver a little tighter, and promptly fell asleep in the boat. It was during a bass club team tournament with his father, and he was six years old.

Australian Angler Carl Jocumsen Fulfilling His American Fishing Dream

26-Jan-2021

The record book shows the 2019 Bassmaster® Elite Series tournament at Lake Tenkiller lasted four days, but for Australian angler Carl Jocumsen, who won that season-ending event, the tournament really lasted nine years. The Yamaha Pro had been in America that long struggling to fulfill his dream of having a professional fishing career in the United States.
 

Walters Never Expected to Catch So Many Bass at Lake Fork

21-Dec-2020

In what some thought might be one of the toughest tournaments of the 2020 Bassmaster® Elite Series, the year’s final event at Lake Fork in November, Patrick Walters won with an astounding total of 104 pounds, 12 ounces, almost 30 pounds more than his nearest competitor, and the Yamaha Pro still isn’t sure how or why it happened.

Fishing with Helm Master EX

16-Dec-2020

If saltwater fishing is your passion, you and your boat could have a new indispensable fishing tool—Helm Master® EX. It can make your fishing more precise, more productive, even less strenuous, and you can only get it with Yamaha Outboards. 
 

Wendlandt Thankful But Humbled After Winning Fourth AOY Title

20-Nov-2020

A week after Clark Wendlandt had won his fourth Angler of the Year title, his first in the Bassmaster® Elite Series after winning three with the FLW® pro tour, the Yamaha Pro still had difficulty putting the experience into words.

Upgrade Your Electronics to Catch More Fish

05-Oct-2020

Today’s marine electronics give anglers the tools needed to skip the lengthy search for fish and proceed directly to the fun part: catching them!

If you’re one of those people who don’t replace anything until it breaks and this also includes your fishfinder/GPS, there’s a good chance you have been left behind during the most amazing periods of advancement in marine electronics history. The biggest quantum leap occurred in 2009 when CHIRP technology migrated from the military to recreational fishing. Previously, sonar signals from fishfinders were a single-frequency, short-duration pulse sent out and returned that sometimes created an uncertain image on the screen… especially on the bottom. Is that a rock or a big fish? Higher in the column, the separation was such it was sometimes hard to distinguish between weeds and fish, and between big and small fish. The older units required experienced eyes to know what they were seeing.

Research, Pre-Planning Help This Pro Find Summer Bass

12-Aug-2020

We recently caught up with the now 35-year-old Chris “Zaldangerous” Zaldain and asked him if he still uses the same methods to plan ahead. Chris stated, “This article highlights a scenario that happens frequently on tour, no matter which lake. I still study the lakes as much as I can prior to fishing them.” 

For second-year Bassmaster® Elite tournament angler Chris Zaldain, finding bass on lakes he’s never fished before involves a lot more than casting his favorite lure and hoping it lands in front of a hungry fish. The Yamaha Pro actually starts “fishing” a new tournament lake with hours of Internet research and map study weeks before he ever arrives at the water’s edge, a strategy especially important during the summer months when bass may be shallow, deep, or anywhere in between. 

"The grass is always greener, but what you don’t know is that grass may be fake. Even though it’s greener, doesn’t mean it’s real.”

12-May-2020

“The grass is always greener, but what you don’t know is that grass may be fake. Even though it’s greener, doesn’t mean it’s real.”
 
That’s one of my favorite quotes these days. There are lots of people out there wishing for different situations right now. Wishing to get out of the house, to travel, to stop homeschooling, to find a new job, to eat at a restaurant, to hang out with friends, to visit loved ones who are ill - even wishing for a break from very long hours caring for others who are sick and need attention. Our situations are all different and so many are dealing with great loss. It’s really hard to pull any positive thoughts out of the most devastating situations, but maybe one of the lessons we can take from this is to have a better appreciation for what is real.
 

Spring into the Boating Season

04-Mar-2020

Spring is right around the corner promising warmer, longer days and more opportunities to get out on the water. For boaters in cooler climates, the pending arrival of spring means it’s time to get busy prepping their boats for the first official splash of the season.
 

Coast Guard Safety Inspections

04-Mar-2020

Are you ready to pass a Coast Guard safety inspection? Coast Guard policy requires safety inspections as a method of outreach to the boating public to impress upon them the importance of carrying the necessary safety equipment in case of an emergency. When your boat is properly equipped, you can enjoy your time on the water even more with the peace of mind that you and your passengers are safe. These preventative inspections can happen at anytime so it’s important to make sure you are always ready. As these hard-working men and women of the Coast Guard put their lives on the line when called on to make hazardous rescues at sea, boaters need to prepare for and respect these inspections so that they are completed quickly and efficiently.
