    Default Need advice on trolling motor

    Just got my son and I a 1232 tracker Jon boat. Does Walmart sell a trolling motor good enough for this boat? I knew to using boats, we had been bank fishing. We’ll be fishing small lakes. Thanks

    Yes, they sell a couple of different sizes in thrust. Where and how are you going to be using the boat and how far do you expect to travel.

    I would think a 35 pound thrust or 40 would be plenty with a group 27 deep cycle battery. Should run you around all day with out any problems.

    What Cray said. They work better from the front but that’s for further along.

    I bought my deep cycle 27 from Wal Mart, it does fine.

    I got one from Walmart and it seems to work well. Runs trolling motor and fish finder.
