KENNESAW, Ga. – Darold Gleason became the first angler in America to cash-in on Yamaha’s new Power Pay contingency program for tournament anglers when he finished third in the FLW Tackle Warehouse Pro event on Sam Rayburn, Texas on Jan. 26.

“Yamaha is known for power and incredible reliability, but the fact you can now earn a cash bonus through the Power Pay program makes running a Yamaha outboard an absolute no-brainer,” said Gleason.

Competitive anglers who are original owners and own and run a new 115-425 horsepower Yamaha outboard purchased from authorized Yamaha dealers within 60 months from the date of the Yamaha Power Pay Registration Form can register for Power Pay by visiting

The highest placing registered Power Pay angler at each sanctioned event will have the opportunity to earn Power Pay cash. Payouts range from $250 to $50,000.

During the 2020 B.A.S.S. season, Power Pay registered and eligible anglers not currently under a supported contract with Yamaha have the opportunity to earn the following  amounts for the highest place finish in the following tournaments:

  • $50,000 for the 2020 Bassmaster Classic
  • $20,000 for 2020 Angler of the Year
  • $10,000 for 2020 B.A.S.S. Nation
  • $10,000 for the 2020 B.A.S.S. College Championship
