My Bixpy Summer
Not enough can be said for the generosity and tech support from Houman and Daniela and their team at Bixpy. The CCA CAL was lucky enough to have Bixpy as our sponsor for the Biggest Bass caught in our four kayak tournaments this summer.
As a Hobie fishing team member, I had seen their product at the Fred Hall Shows as well as at a few of our local Hobie dealers stores…but having the time during our tournaments to talk one on one with Houman really made me want to try one of these versatile little motors.
I now have two motors with two different motor mounts for my Pro Anglers and Adventure Island and two batteries so I can extend my cruising range on those, day-long saltwater fishing trips. The Bixpy motor complements the Pro Angler perfectly. The Compact design of the lightweight Lithium batteries allows them to fit as if they were custom made for that spot right under the Hobie Vantage seat… and the remote control fits perfectly on the armrest of that Vantage seat and is always right at hand.
The Bixpy has taken me to lots of Halibut, Bass, and Rockfish this season as well as trolling up some of our tasty local pelagics, like Yellowtail and Bonito. Every summer I take my two Pro Anglers up to some high altitude lakes in the Eastern Sierras for some Trout fishing and Crawfish trapping. We did 3 trips this Summer and the Bixpy’s were used every day of our fishing trips including a 14-day trip. We charged the batteries with a small generator each night, and we even utilized the USB outlet on the batteries to charge our phones and power the wireless speaker around the campfire at night.
This was an epic summer of big fish for me…I caught 5 trout Rainbow trout over 3 lbs., up to 5.7lbs and one personal best 3 pound Brown Trout this summer and too many small stocker fish to count. Most of the Trout were caught with the motor while trolling at the slowest speed. A bunch of fish was also caught while trolling at the faster speeds while using the downrigger and leadcore line. It was so easy to set the downrigger and rod with the Bixpy slowly running forward.
I have a new Hobie Outback kayak on order, and I can’t wait to try the Bixpy with this new hull design.
THANKS for a fun Summer BIXPY…!!!
