Yamaha Marine Group released the second short video in the company’s new “Fishing with Helm Master” series, which portrays real-world fishing applications and the maneuvering capabilities of Helm Master, Yamaha’s fully integrated boat control system.
In the video, titled “Using a Cast Net with Helm Master,” Yamaha saltwater pro and captain George Mitchell demonstrates how to leverage Helm Master to keep a boat in place around tight confined areas, such as docks and shallow water, when using a cast net to catch bait.
“The key to successful fishing has a lot to do with catching the right bait, and when you are casting a net to catch a school of bait, position means everything,” Mitchell said in the video. “The beauty of the Helm Master system is that you can twist the boat into tight areas to get the bait you need with precision, ease and confidence.”
Watch Mitchell catch the mullet he’ll later use for bait.
Yamaha will add more new videos to the series in the early fall.
