Here is a little history….


Our founder, Christian Corley from the Kansas City area, received a phone call from his father Roger Corley who was fishing on Lake Ahquabi in Iowa with his oldest son Bryan. Roger was tired of his cell phone battery being drained while out fishing. Bryan said “what we need is for someone to take the power from the navigation light port and convert it to USB”. His father, Roger said, “well I know who can invent that, let’s call your brother Christian!” A few hours later – PowerStick-10″ was born.

Christian showed PowerStick-10″ to Bassmaster Elite Pro Angler Casey Scanlon. Casey said “this is great, but can you make it hold my GoPro, VIRB or other action cameras?” So we began to work on a longer stick that would extend up and down for a lot of points of view. A few days later PowerStick-53″ was born.

Just two weeks later PowerStick-53″ was voted one of the TOP NEW PRODUCTS at The Bassmaster Classic presented by GoPro! Just a few months later PowerStick-10″ WON Best in Show at iCAST New Product Showcase.


Folks ask us “how did you come up with the company name?” Great question! We had paid two advertising agencies in Kansas City a lot of money to come up with an awesome name, but they kept missing the mark. Then one day Dakota; Christian’s son, who was 8 years old at the time, said; “We should call it YOLOtek, because Daymond John from Shark Tank says ‘You Only Live Once!'” Now almost every top fishing pro & anglers around the world use the YOLOtek® powered GoPro boat mount to catch YOLO moments on video. 

Today we are growing fast and have many products in the pipeline. If you have a problem or frustrated with something on the water or on land, please let us know.
