Make the Right Boat Trolling Motor Selection

Now there are two more considerations. Do you need a bow or transom-mount motor? For the bow motor the boat must have a flat bottom fishing platform. MinnKota’s Edge Bow Mount Motor is great for freshwater fishermen and is built from marine-grade aluminum for years of reliable use. Otherwise, opt for the transom, which clamps to the stern and is compatible with any style boat. For optimal thrust, consider MotorGuide’s Bulldog Transom Mount Foot Controlled Trolling Motor. Lastly, do you want to look at hand or foot controlled boat trolling motors? Just remember that a foot-controlled model leaves a fisherman hands free to cast with ease.
