I don't think it was the color more so than the lures action.  I tried top water, crankbaits (deep and shallow) spinner baits in a variety of colors but to no avail.  It was the wacky worm in 2 different brands (slightly different shades of green/red flake) that they liked.  Maybe they were on the beds and didn't want to abandon the nest to chase something....anyway they liked the worms so if you go take plenty.
Good hunting!

Definitely not the "Emperor of Technology"!

I arrived around 6 and headed out to the right (I like this end of the lake).  I tried everything in the bag but to no avail until I tried Wacky rigged fat worms (watermelon/red flake)......BOOM!  I caught 9 bass and lost a few more.  Most were the 10-12 inch variety but I did manage a couple of 17 inch fatties that scaled at 2 pounds each.  I'm going to try to post the pics soon but I haven't had much luck doing that so you might have to use your imagination. :smt001

Maybe a little hair of the dawg......!  :smt004

I'm hitting Lake Hennessey in the AM around 6......Dune Outback.....company welcome.....channel 69.

I believe that you tell them the purchase price of the vehicle (yak) and the license fee is based on the price of the yak times the local sales tax.  If you paid $1500 for the yak the license fee would be 8% (my local sales tax rate)of $1500 or $120 plus some DMV fees.  I think that is what I paid in the past for buying a motorcycle private party.  I was curious what others might have paid.......DMV is not always clear on their charges.

If I go ahead and install an electric troll motor on my Outback what are the fees required from DMV?  I have heard that it can be as much as 180 bucks.  I know that it is required to license a powered yak in California but how many of you actually do?  Thanks for any responses.

Looks like some good ideas here. Has anyone ever tried the Watersnake?  I saw a YouTube video of using the Hobie drive plug to mount it in the drive slot.  Any other suggestions as to battery type or amps?  Thanks again for the responses.

I have a 2013 Hobie Outback.  I'm interested in putting an electric motor on it.  What are some suggstions as to what motor/battery to use and any other insight into what modifications provide the best results.  Thanks for any help.

This shows the rudder is almost locked in.

Here's the pics...the first photo shows it "almost locked"
The second shows I lengthened the bungee from 7 to 9 inches.

I loosened the bungee 2 inches from 7 to 9.  It works way better and the bungree is not as taught.  I'll have to drop in the port and see if this improvement is the answer.  I have a little slack in the deploy handle but I can live with that if all else is good.  Thanks for the advice.
I'll post the results soon.

I'll post some pics later....can't seem to upload pics now....very frustrating!!!!

The bungee is tight when the rudder is deployed so I'll loosen up the bungee and see what happens.

As for the locking mechanism it appears to have enough "detent" that I believe it should hold....after loosening the bungee I'll check it again.

I really appreciate all the help....Thanks.

It appears that the rudder does not "lock" into the down position as per the photos.  The arrow points to the "locking" mechanism in the "locked" as well as the "not yet locked" position.  Once deployed and cleated the rudder does not stay in the locked position.  If you peddle slowly, it will stay down but upon speeding up the rudder will "blow back" and become ineffective.....also if you hit some weeds it will do the same.....I just don't know how to fix this.
