Sign Up For Yamaha Power Pay To Capitalize On Top Finishes and Earn Large Payouts

SAN ANTONIO, TX (October 6, 2023) – In one week, the Association of Collegiate Anglers will host its second event of the 2023-24 season.  This no-entry-fee, nationally televised major event will take place at Lake Dardanelle in Russellville, AR on October 14-15, 2023.  At this tournament, the field comprised of hundreds of the top collegiate anglers from across the nation will be eligible to participate in the Yamaha Power Pay Program!

This past summer, Yamaha Power Pay exceeded $1,000,000 in total payout awarded. Former Auburn University angler Anthony Vintson claimed Yamaha Power Pay at an Alabama Bass Team Trail event a few months ago to push the total money earned through the premier tournament contingency program over the $1,000,000 mark. “And there’s a real simple reason I wanted a Yamaha; my dad is an outboard mechanic, he owns Vintson Marine on Smith Lake, and he’ll tell you they work on Yamahas far less than any other brand,” emphasizes Vintson.

“As the Yamaha Power Pay program reaches this incredible milestone of $1 million in payouts, we would like to thank our angler customers for their loyalty to the Yamaha brand,” said Connor Megan, Pro Staff and Sponsorship Supervisor, Yamaha Marine Engine Systems. “We plan to continue the Power Pay momentum by adding more events and bigger payouts. Yamaha outboard owners enrolled in the program will have more opportunities than ever before to earn money through Power Pay!”

Here are further details on how the Yamaha Power Pay program works:


To participate in the Yamaha Power Pay Program, an angler must own a Yamaha outboard motor. The Yamaha outboard motor must be purchased within the past 60 months, 115-425 HP. Yamaha outboard motor must be warranty registered in participant’s name, and must be used on Program participant’s boat while fishing supported Power Pay tournament events.


Complete the official Yamaha Power Pay Program registration form and return via email, fax, or mail (or register online).


Participate in a contingency paying tournament, and post the highest placing finish of those who have registered for the Yamaha Power Pay Program. Select tournament trails will pay the top two highest finishes. Highest finishes must fall within the top 33% of the field, with a minimum field size of no less than 40 boats. See current list of Power Pay sanctioned events.


Submit the official Yamaha Power Pay Awards form within 30-days of your finish. Upon verification and approval, your contingency payment will be sent via U.S. mail. Winners should allow a minimum of 8 weeks for approval, processing and distribution.

“Yamaha Power Pay program rewards anglers for their loyalty and passion for the sport of competitive fishing and the Yamaha brand,” said Connor Megan, Pro Staff and Sponsorship Supervisor, Yamaha Marine Engine Systems. “The 2023 season expands the reach of Power Pay further into the western U.S. and deeper into grass roots tournaments which are growing in popularity. We look forward to adding more anglers to the program this year and wish all of the competitors the best of luck as they take to the water.”
