Use the Big Catch on my trailer which I haul my kayak on. It works very well and I like it a lot.




by:

Works as it should. Easy to put on and remove.




by:

Great experience, fast shipping.




by:

We use these for two heavy fishing kayaks on both truck crossbars and now a Malone trailer. They are stable and adjustable so fit and support are perfect. The staps secure the boats with no problem and zero movement.




by:

etrailer, specifically Matthew K - helped our family secure everything needed for wonderful camping trips. The task was difficult because of supply chain issues last spring! Thank you Matthew!!




by:

I bought this because I had limited room putting my Bonafide SS127 on my rack and roll trailer, and sometimes it will slide onto the part that holds the bars down and one time when it did that, it scratched the bottom of my kayak up pretty badly. These seem like they will be a decent solution and prevent that from happening again while holding my kayak secure.




by:

While I own several Yakima products I've always felt their prices were expensive. I believe these saddles are worth the price. Well made and hold my Hobie Compass securely. It seems like a very durable material, and I am pleased with the build quality.

Love it!

See what our Experts say about this Yakima Watersport Carriers



  • Will the Yakima Big Catch Rotate on Yakima Round Bars
    Yes the Yakima BigCatch Kayak Carrier w/ Tie-Downs part # Y04091 will work on your Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer. To prevent them from moving they are easy to tighten down and get really secure. With that said there is the potential for them to rotate if you put a lot of pressure on them since it is a round bar it is something that we see from time to time. You will be able to tighten them down more but I do not want to tell you that no matter what happens they will never rotate. I've...

  • Kayak Carriers Compatible With Larger 34" Wide Kayak
    The Yakima JayLow Kayak Carrier part # Y04073 will carry a Kayak that is 34" wide as long as it does not weigh more than 80 lbs. If you are planning on carrying 2 kayaks they cannot exceed 110 lbs together. Most 34" wide kayaks like the fishing Hobie kayaks weigh more than 80 lbs so I recommend to check the weight. If your kayak fits the weight restrictions the JayLow is a great option. If your Kayak is heavier, I recommend to use the Yakima BigCatch Kayak Carrier w/ Tie-Downs - Saddle...

    To secure your Hobie Mirage Pro Angler 14 with 360 Drive Technology to the lower level of the Yakima EasyRider Double Decker Trailer # Y08129 I recommend the Yakima BigCatch Kayak Carrier # Y04091. The BigCatch is confirmed to fit the lower round bars, and its 150lb weight capacity will be perfect for your kayak. I included videos for both of the products mentioned for you to take a look at.

  • 2021 Kia Niro OEM Roof Rack Fitment with Yakima ShowBoat and BigCatch
    The Yakima ShowBoat 66 Slide-Out Load Assist Roller # Y04068 is designed to work with saddle-style kayak/canoe carriers so it will work great in conjunction with the Yakima BigCatch Kayak Carrier # Y04091. Since all of these pieces are adjustable I don't see you having any issues getting everything loaded up on your 2021 Kia Niro OEM roof rack.

  • Can Yakima BigCatch Kayak Carrier Be Locked to Roof Rack
    The Yakima BigCatch Kayak Carrier w/ Tie-Downs # Y04091 doesn't come with key-locks but they do use security bolts that use a special unique tool to help keep the casual passerby from snatching up the BigCatch. If you'd like to add another measure of security to your boat then we have the Yakima RipCord Multipurpose Locking Straps # Y04048 that I recommend checking out.

  • Kayak Carrier Recommendation for Lower Crossbars on Yakima EasyRider Double Decker Trailer
    The lower crossbars on the Yakima EasyRider Double Decker Trailer # Y08129 are larger than most other crossbars and have a 2" diameter. While most people just mount pads on them and secure the kayaks with tie-downs that way I recommend using the Yakima BigCatch Kayak Carrier w/ Tie-Downs # Y04091 because we know these will fit the larger crossbars and they are a saddle style type carrier so they have a lower profile for better clearance on the bottom of the trailer. Attached are some...

  • Is Yakima Kayak Carrier Compatible With Fishing Kayak With Scupper Holes
    Yes, you can use the Yakima Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs - Saddle Style with Rollers # Y04083-04082 with your Jackson fishing kayak with scupper holes. Those holes will not interfere with the mounting that this carrier provides. The only thing to keep in mind is that this carrier has an 80 lb weight capacity and quite a few fishing kayaks are heavier than that, including some of the Jackson fishing kayaks I saw. If it was you'd need a different carrier, the Yakima BigCatch Kayak Carrier...

  • Is Yakima Y04091 Big Catch Kayak Carrier Lockable?
    The Yakima # Y04091 BigCatch isn't lockable, for a similar locking kayak carrier, I'd recommend the # Y04083-04082 Kayak Carrier. If the 80 lb capacity will accommodate your kayak, this would be a good choice for easy loading and unloading. If the 80 lb capacity isn't sufficient, your best bet would be to go with the BigCatch and simply remove the carrier when you're leaving the vehicle unattended.

  • Can You Mount 2 40-Inch Canoes on a Platform Rack?
    I think I have a possible solution. The only bars that are compatible with pioneer platforms will not give you the 80 inches you need for mounting your two canoes. However, I confirmed with my contact at Yakima that your 40-inch canoes will fit on the Yakima BigCatch Kayak Carrier w/ Tie-Downs - Saddle Style # Y04091. For this to work, you will need to remove the pioneer rack from the bars you have installed and install the Big Catches right onto the HD bars. I also confirmed that this...

  • Recommended Kayak Carrier for a 2020 Hobie Outback Mirage Kayak
    The Thule DockGrip Kayak and SUP Carrier with Tie-Downs part # TH895 has a 75 lb weight capacity so if the 2020 Hobie Outback Mirage weighs 85 lbs it won't work. Instead, I recommend the Yakima BigCatch Kayak Carrier part # Y04091 which has a 150 lb weight capacity so it will be much better suited for sit on top kayaks. The Yakima BigCatch Kayak Carrier should work just fine on a Mopar Roof Rack.

  • Will the Thule Compass Kayak and SUP Carrier Work With a Hobie Kayak
    The best kayak carrier for a Hobie kayak is the Yakima BigCatch Kayak Carrier part # Y04091 which is specifically designed for larger fishing kayaks. The Yakima BigCatch has a 150 lb weight capacity and you can adjust the cradles to fit the exact shape/width of the hull on the Hobie kayak allowing for the best fit. The Yakima BigCatch will also fit the factory crossbar on the Subaru Crosstrek no problem. The Yakima BigCatch comes with all the required tie downs as well so you don't have...

  • How To Load And Carry A Porta-Bote On A Lexus LX570
    I spoke with someone at Porta-Bote and they said you can carry your boat directly on the crossbars of your vehicle's roof rack. My suggestion would be to carry it like a kayak on a carrier. The carrier will have padding that can protect your boat during transport. The Yakima BigCatch Kayak Carrier w/ Tie-Downs - Saddle Style - Rear Loading - Clamp On - 150 lbs part # Y04091, will allow you to load your boat from the rear of the vehicle. The saddles will attach to your factory roof rack...

  • How To Secure Fishing Kayak On Lower Level Of Yakima EasyRider Double Decker Trailer
    The lower level of the Yakima EasyRider Double Decker Trailer part # Y08129 wound be a great place to store a fishing kayak. I'm sure you could devise a way to attach some bunk boards but I really don't have any options for this so instead i'd recommend the Yakima BigCatch Kayak Carrier part # Y04091 which is designed for these larger fishing kayaks. In regards to the spare wheel/tire, the Spare Tire and Carrier for Yakima EasyRider Trailer part # Y08125 is the only thing we can recommend....

The BigCatch has a 150 lb weight capacity and works with very larger crossbars so you will not have any issues. I will however say that most customers just use ratchet straps and pads to secure a kayak to the crossbars on the lower...

  • Compatibility of Yakima Big Catch Saddles for Blue Sky Angler 360 Kayak on Rack and Roll Trailer
    The Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer - 66" # Y08106 is rated for 250 lbs. Your Jackson Blue Sky Angler 360 will work just fine on this trailer. The Yakima BigCatch Kayak Carrier w/ Tie-Downs - Saddle Style - Rear Loading - Clamp On - 150 lbs # Y04091 are under the capacity of the 170 lb boat, but they are almost twice as much capacity as the alternative options, so they are what I would use. You will also want the RoundBar Adapter Kit for Yakima BigCatch Saddles - Qty 4 # Y04093.

  • What High-Capacity Kayak Carrier Fits Yakima HD Crossbars?
    You are definitely correct that the Yakima JayLow # Y04073 has a weight capacity of 80 pounds. For your 95-pound kayak, we need to pull out the heavy artillery. For a great kayak carrier that can mount to Yakima HD Crossbars like the # Y01158, I recommend the Yakima BigCatch # Y04091. I confirmed with my tech at Yakima that the clamps on this carrier definitely fit the HD crossbars. The BigCatch comes with a massive 150-pound weight capacity. Since the carrier is a saddle-style design,...

  • Recommended Kayak Carrier for Feelfree Lure II 14 Foot Kayak on 2017 Honda CR-V
    Your Freelfree Overdrive Lure II Tandem kayak will indeed fit on your existing roof rack. According to what I've managed to look up, the kayak weighs up to 115 lbs, which is well within the capabilities of the Yakima Jetstream roof rack you mentioned. I have the perfect carrier for you. The Yakima BigCatch # Y04091 would work great for you. Due to the width of your kayak, using a j-style carrier like the Thule # TH834 Hull-A-Port wouldn't be a good choice, but the BigCatch would allow...

  • Do Yakima Kayak Carriers Fit Right-On Ruff Sport Trailers for Heavy Fishing Kayak
    I took a look at the website for the Right-On Ruff trailers and it specified that Yakima accessories will fit the crossbars of the Right-On Ruff Sport trailers. We do have a carrier that will work for you, although the Yakima Mako has been discontinued for some time, and it's replacement, the Yakima Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs - Saddle Style with Rollers # Y04083-04082, only has an 80 lb capacity. That's not enough for your Jakckson Kayak 360 Angler, which, based on my research weighs...
