how bout some trolling motor setup pics

Post by jopete »

i know there is a search function , but thought some of yall might want to show-off your trolling motor setup on your airboat.

i've got to cross miles of lillies to get to where i been fishing, and was thinkin about putting a trolling motor on the deckover. is there a prefferred way to do this? what i mean is it better to go over the rake center of the boat, or before the rake off to the side?
bad as my boat wants to spin, i figure center of the boat would be best.
thanks!

"STONER". Has a pretty cool set up. Removable etc. But he doesn't have a grass rake. Check his gallery or maybe he'll post sum pics. If he's not to "stoned":)

He'll cut your throat, baby, stick you in the back, drive off in your Cadillac.
He's more trouble than you think, he'll kill your sugar, leave you in the drink.
