Trolling Motors

Hello all, any experience out there with saltwater trolling motors? Looking at the Minnkota 67lb auto-pilot bow mount. Not sure if I should go with Minnkota or Great White, bow or transom. There are few different different style bow mounts (scissor, gator etc). Any suggestions on the benefits/drawbacks would be greatly appreciated. The boat I am mounting it on is a 19' that weighs approximately 3500 lbs. Thanks in advance for any help.

RE: Trolling Motors

I just got the Minn Kota 55 lb bow mount. My boat and engine weigh 1400 lbs and the 55 lb thrust is plenty. I had a fresh water bass boat for many years and always had Minn Kota. I thought wanted a foot control, but after receiving on some good advice from this board, I went with the hand control. You dont want to be trying to work a foot control and trying to maintain your balance if the boat is rocking. Besides, that foot control is one more thing to bounce around in the boat and tangle fly line.

Also, I strongly recommend the removable bracket. There may be times when the trolling motor will get in the way, especially if your boat doubles as a family
