    Default Simple Things

    It's easy to forget what we know and what we have learned.
    About 45 minutes ago I made a pretty good turn cranking. One of the outside poles doubled up so I picked up my speed from 1.5 to 2.0, went from 4 in the box to 11.
    At 2.0 on my boat the trolling motor had to be on 7 to 7.5 with very little wind, remembered an old trick from when I first started cranking. Raised the outboard only the skeg was in the water, 5.5 now does what I need.
    Hope these little tips help someone.

    Another little tip, those Bass Pro rod floaty things will float a 10 foot Denali rod with a Daiwa line counter on it.
    Dont ask questions just trust me!!!

    By the way while pulling cranks and looking back, keep an eye out for trees, trees will make you text Bass Pro products.

    Those 16' denali rods will float to. Hung 5 in a brush pile with a strong wind blowing. Dumped em all.

    Does pulling crankbait with the trolling motor yields more bites than pulling with the big motor? I caught plenty of with both methods but wondering if the big motor scares some of the crappies away.

    Funny you should mention that.That happened to me Sat. I was landing a fish and wasn't watching ahead and hung my trolling bracket on a tree and ripped the front 2 screws out of the deck on the base.
