    Power pux is on sale for $375 and I figured I would pick one up for the build. Something I never considered was the orientation of the trolling motor stored on either the left or right side, What’s everyone’s preference and why do you prefer it that way?
  2. Power it up with Electronics
    Looking to add a GPS Remote Trolling motor to my 16' skiff (400 - 500 lb weight) and wanted to see if anyone has suggestions on the best for the money. Also what LB Thrust should I be using? I will do some current fishing so that is a factor on Thrust. Thanks!

    Alright so I will try to make this as simple as possible, I like to run my trolling motor batteries completely independent of the other system as it helps me figure out the gremlins if there’s an issue with either system meaning my trolling motor batteries have their own onboard charger and are...

  8. Fly Fishing
    Curious if anyone has input on casting a fly rod while a trolling motor is deployed. I do a lot of fly fishing on my own and am considering adding a TM to the bow of my skiff. (I currently have a casting platform at the front of the bow - not on the bow hatch). It seems like it might impede...

    The other day while fishing I noticed my tm start squeaking more and more throughout the day. I was in anchor mode and when I was ready to continue my track, it randomly started running slow on me. I pulled it out of the water and it seemed like the prop slipped outwards. I could spin the prop...

    Curious on feedback for placing a trolling motor on a Maverick HPX-V. I have my platform at the very tip of the bow, which I really like. To leave this as is, I would have to install a trolling motor either port or starboard side of the bow. Any feedback on performance with this type of set...

    Hey folks, I did some searching but wasn’t able to find any discussions on this (in regards to motorguide). I made some phone calls to motorguide to ask them the main difference between the fresh vs saltwater trolling motors and I was surprised to hear that the only difference was the saltwater...

    Hey guys/gals. New here this is my first post. Picked up a used viper 19ft flats boat, and am trying to get her up to speed. I’ve read elsewhere that they tend to squat in the back at idle/ rest. The trolling motor it came with BARELY sits in the water, definitely need a longer shaft but don’t...

    Hi all, I have been a long time reader of microskiff forums and I finally bought a 1999 Scout 162 with a 99 Yamaha C60 2 stroke. I am relatively new to owning a boat as I have been a kayak fisherman the past few years. How should I set up my batteries in my boat? The original owner only had a...
