BixFish Tracks have been called a game changer for Scout boating. With their length, there is room to put accessories where you want them, and ample space for tools and other storage, keeping the floor of the boat open and clear.
If you only need a bit of track, the BixFish Short Track provides a track that clamps securely to a seat, without requiring any holes to be drilled in the seat.
Extending BixFish tracks to the transom provides excellent bracing and stabilization for a bass seat mounted on the rear Scout seat.
Below you will find more info, pricing, and links to videos. Check out the Track Accessories section of this catalog for accessories I sell. The BixFish track system is also compatible with track accessories sold by companies such as YakAttack and Scotty.
If you bring your boat to me, in San Diego, I will install your track for free. For instruction on how to install a track yourself. see this YouTube video.

BixFish Track Construction
BixFish short and long tracks are both fabricated from 1-inch square anodized aluminum extrusions. I then mill access slots at various places along the track to drop in accessory bolts used to attach accessories. Slots are milled for the Track Bolts, which go through the track to Track Nuts located under the seat. The Track Nuts are encased in plastic housings to prevent any part of the bolt from touching a pontoon.
Track Bolts are attached by the user with string at the Retainer holes, so that the bolt won’t get lost when the track is removed from the boat
The End Cap prevents the end corners from touching a pontoon.
Two track bolts are used. One goes in the most forward seat, and one in the most rearward. In the case of TR02 and TR05, an optional third bolt can be added for the middle seat. For tracks reaching the transom, there is no attachment to the transom – the track simply rests on the transom when someone is sitting on the rear seat. The tracks that reach the transom provide exceptional stabilization to a swivel seat that might be mounted on the rear bench.
BixFish Short Track
Fabricated from the same aluminum extrusion as the longer tracks, the BixFish Short Track offers an economical solution to adding a useful length of track to your boat.
The Short Track is compatible iwth all BixFish track accessores, as well as accessories from other manufacturers such as Scotty and YakAttack.
Unlike the longer tracks, no holes are required in the seat. The Short Track clamps to the seat securely and can be used with trolling rod holders. At the end of a fishing session it can be left on the seat, or removed and reinstalled on the next outing.
The standard length for the Short Track is 14 inches, vbutthe track can be made longer, up to 20 inches, as a price of $0.75 per additional inch
Accessory Bolt, Carriage Bolt Style
These are modified from stock stainless steel carriage bolts by filing the head and the square collar at the top of the thread, to fit the tracks. They are inexpensive, and can be harder to slide than the brass accessory bolts. Available in lengths of 1-1/4″, the most common length, 1″ and 3/4″.
Accessory Bolt, Solid Brass
Because of the flatter head, these move more easily in the track than the Carriage Bolt Style. They can be ordered in the same lengths: 1-1/4″, 1″ and 3/4″
