KENNESAW, Ga. – Oct. 12, 2020 – Carl Jocumsen, the only Australian to win a
Bassmaster ® event, narrowly missed claiming another trophy when he finished
second to good friend Brandon Palaniuk in the Bassmaster ® Elite on Santee
Cooper Lakes presented by the United States Marine Corps ® .

Jocumsen’s story is an inspiring one and he added another exciting chapter last
weekend on Santee Cooper. Speaking of excited, Jocumsen and his wife Kayla
were thrilled to learn they earned another $1,000 Power Pay bonus thanks to the
Yamaha V MAX SHO ® outboard on the back of his Bass Cat ® Boat.

This marks the second time Jocumsen’s has pocketed the Yamaha Power Pay
money this year; a grand reminder that his decision to run a Yamaha outboard
motor in 2020 has been fruitful in a myriad of ways.

His primary pattern was based around using a 1.25-ounce WOO Tungsten ®
weight to punch a Molix ® SV Craw into matted vegetation in the back of Jack’s
Creek on the massive South Carolina fishery.

Keeper bites were few and far between, but committing to punching heavy
vegetation and having extreme confidence in his equipment allowed him to milk
his main area for all it was worth.

“Had I not been running a Yamaha day three could have been a disaster,”
Jocumsen said. “With only three keepers in my livewell I was running out of time
and I still had a long run through rough water. Having the utmost trust in my
equipment allowed me to push it until the last minute, catch my fourth keeper,
and make it back to weigh-in with little time to spare.”

You don’t have to win a tournament or be a professional fisherman to reap the
benefits of Yamaha’s reliability or the popular Power Pay contingency program.
Power Pay supports hundreds of bass, saltwater, walleye, and high school or
college level tournaments and is awarded to the highest finishing registered
participant in these events.
