Viewers Rig with my good friend and fishing team member Moo Moo Outdoors. He has a older Hobie Revo 11 that he has pedaled the crap out of for years. He fishes several times a week, and is one of the most versatile anglers I know. He shares all his adventures over on his Youtube Page. Go check him out!!!
Romel Labrador the Rigging Wizard swung by the shop with a rudder mounted Bixby Jet motor. We threw it on a couple of our favorite ultra light fishing kayaks and did some speed testing. I love the idea of using the Bixby as a electric assist option, allowing you to paddle at max hull speed with far less effort. At 15lbs it doesn’t add much weight to the kayak. You could paddle it the same as normal, but when your arms get tired kick the motor down and get some help back to the launch.

We sell the Bixby and will be happy to do the install for you or ship one our to you.

Got a moment to spend some time with Out West With Chris and his brand new 2019 Hobie Outback. He has a simple setup, that works great for him. Excited to be getting more Hobie stuff up on the channel now that we are selling Hobie’s through our Redding Location.
