2018 has been an amazing year for all of us at Bob’s Machine. We have had prostaff wins on all major circuits this year, released tons of new products, and purchased a new location that will serve our needs well into the foreseeable future!
We now have a move in date of March 2019 that we will be 100% into our new location and adding additional CNC mills, employees, and allowing us to reduce lead times and create new products!!
There are already a bunch of new products ready to launch in early 2019, so keep on checking back! But until then, we wish you a Merry Christmas, Happy Holiday and a wonder New Year!
We had a very successful ICAST trade show and released our new Hydraulic Kick Back Jac, which can be seen here : https://bobsmachine.com/product/hydraulic-action-series-kick-back-jac/
And we have purchased a new location that will become Bob’s HQ in 2019! The 34K SQFT 2 building facility will allow us to purchase additional machinery, add more jobs in the Tampa area, and grow our brand! We are currently renovating the building to be world class for CNC machining, coating, and design.
Bob’s is proud to announce we have made significant engineering changes to our already popular Extreme series jack plates, and now are on the 3rd Generation of them.
The Extreme Series launched 10 years ago and was the first jack plate rated for the 350 HP Yamaha V8s. As time went out they were revised into the Gen2 series that is wider for Verado’s and rated to 400HP motors. Now with the new Yamaha 425, and lineup of Mercury 4 strokes with huge torque gains, we have again redesigned the Extreme in the Gen3 series with new material and manufacturing processes to make them even stronger. Now rated to 550hp and 1000+ lbs motors, Bobs is again the first to be ready to lift the heaviest of outboards quickly to give that improved holeshot, top speed, and fuel economy gains that we all love on all motors. And for boaters that have the 7marine 627HP motors, we have that covered to with our specific 7 Marine jack plate that was released over 3 years ago!

Summer is heating us and fishing couldn’t be better! Around here in Florida people are pulling donkeys out of Okeechobee and all the lakes in fact!
Bassmaster trails have been great for Team Bobs recently, with Bassfest Bob’s pros Jacob Wheeler 2nd place finish and Cliff Pace 3rd place finish. Last week on Sabine Bobs pro Keith Poche grabbing 3rd!
Over at the FLW Tour, last month on Kentucky Lake Bobs pro Scott Martin grabbed 2nd place and St Clair is right around the corner!
Pro angler Dean Rojas has made some major moves this year, including moving to Bobs Machine Jack Plates! Other moves include Blazer Boats, and Suzuki outboards. Dean is a 20 year veteran and 15 time Bass Master Classic qualifier. He still holds the record for the largest single day bag with 5 fish for 45.2 pounds. With winnings totaling over $2 million Dean brings a wealth of experience to the team.
He will be running a Bob’s Action series jack plate that is satin black with red accents to tie into his Suzuki motor and wrap theme!
Congrats to long time friends and prostaff members Bobby Lane for his 1st place finish in the Bassmaster Open on Kississimme, & Darrell Davis for his 3rd place finish in the FLW Costa event on Okeechobee! Looking forward to seeing the team at the first Bassmaster Elite series event this week!!!
We have 2 new products for 2018, that are going to make your Trolling motor’s better!
Our new QuickSlip cam lever for Trolling motors makes height adjustment extremely easy. No more fumbling with knobs and possibly dropping over. And while going from 20 seconds to change height to 1 second, doesn’t sound like a lot, when you are balancing on the tip of your boat in rough waves, you will be glad you have Bob’s QuickSlip on your Trolling motor! These are also available for all Ram Mount’s as well; They make adjustments MUCH easier, and also hold your graph much tighter! The worst thing is a graph falling down when running across the water, and our patented cam lever design applies more pressure than the standard hand knob and holds your graph upright!
Also for Trolling motors, our new CNC balanced prop nut for MinnKota 80+ lbs trolling motors. Dont worry, more size/brands will be available in the future. These prop nuts are machined in our state of the art Doosan CNC turning center for maximum precision and balancing. No engraved brand names on the side to throw off our perfect machining like other brands. Featuring over 25% more mass than other units on the market, these keep your trolling motors silent! Also we are coating with ultra durable Bob’s Ultimate coat, a ceramic coating process that is corrosion, stain, fade resistant more than any other coating on the market today. Get the best, Get Bobs!
