    Default Boat control for long-lining

    I watched a episode on the crappie connection on you tube. Terry Stewart had 2 trolling motors on the back for boat control for spider rigging. I had a old hand control at the barn so I thought I would give it a try long-lining. I was able to keep my speed down with the wind to my back. Iím going to try it a couple more times and if I still like it Iím going to get a motor guide xi 3 with remote control to put back there. YouTube

    Yes, they have abandoned electric in favor of 4 strokes with trolling plates. Some even claim the turbulence from the plate helps the specs bite. I like the electric trolling. Just many options as mentioned.

    I have a 1720 Key West with a manual motor up front. For trolling out back I’m using a 40# thrust manual i also use on a smaller boat, mounted on an auxiliary motor bracket.
    I do use a handle extension, but even on the lower settings it moves the boat at the right speeds.
