KENNESAW, Ga. – Oct. 6, 2020 – Few anglers show more promise of a long and prosperous career than 26-year-old Wes Logan of Alabama. His wherewithal to buy a Yamaha V MAX SHO® outboard and sign up for the Power Pay contingency program was a strategically mature choice that has already produced returns.

Logan pitched and punched a Zoom® Z Craw Jr and a Missile Baits® D Bomb® on a 1.5-ounce Texas punch rig to finish fourth at the NOCO Bassmaster® Elite on Lake Guntersville and took home a $1,000 Power Pay bonus from Yamaha.

“I pushed running back to weigh-in to literally the last second. You can do that when you’re running a Yamaha. This outboard offers me reliability, hole shot and the opportunity to earn Power Pay bonuses. It wouldn’t make sense to buy anything else,” said Logan.

The great thing about the Yamaha Power Pay program is anglers don’t have to win tournaments to take home Power Pay cash. Anglers simply have to be the highest finishing registered participant in a Power Pay supported tournament. Power Pay is not just for bass anglers, it also includes saltwater, walleye, high school and college anglers through hundreds of events.
