That doesn’t mean a whole lot to redfish anglers and those who target freshwater species, but those who passionately pursue slimy specks know the transition is a real thing.

Bixpy’s Kayak Motor

When paddling or pedaling isn’t enough, an increasing number of kayak anglers are adding electric motors to lessen the physical requirements and/or increase their range. Several companies offer kits and brackets to install traditional trolling motors, but the Bixpy jet motor is a high performance motor contained in a plastic waterproof shell with a small, fully enclosed propeller. One advantage of the Bixpy is that with available accessories, it can be used to propel kayaks, SUPs or any manner of small watercraft. A removable handle with an integrated battery can be used for underwater propulsion for snorkelers and divers. With available rudder mounting or specialized brackets, the Bixpy can be adapted to almost any kayak. It can be powered with a variety of batteries, but available lithium ion rechargeables offer long run time and low weight. An included remote control changes a variety of speeds in both forward and reverse.
