Getting rigged for the sods.

Getting rigged for the sods.

Unread postby Nevermoor » Wed Mar 09, 2016 7:14 pm

I traded up to a new (to me) back bay skiff last year and it was not equipped with a trolling motor like my old Mako. As a result sod bank fishing sucked. Sneaking up on stripers along the sod banks is not easy with a two stroke clanging away. So I added a trolling motor to my 17 Aquasport today. I'll be sneaking up on those finicky bass(tards) this year. :lol:

Cool Gene. Is that the motor guide?

I'll keep my eye out for that blue hulled Aquasport this year. Why did you get rid of the Mako?

Harry,

I did not get rid of it. My kid built a cabin in Virginia on a little river that leads in to the Potomac. So I moved the Mako down there for when we go down and added to my fleet here. Just call me commodore.

Tom,

This is a different son. I have three, all grown. One likes hunting and has the Kentucky land. Another son likes fishing and has the VA cabin. I get the benefit of it all.

I got out to use my new trolling motor the other day. No fish but it was a good shakedown cruise.

This trolling motor has a feature called Anchor Mode. When you push the anchor button on the remote control it uses an internal GPS to hold the boat at that position. It adjusts speed and direction automatically to keep you in one spot. So when we were drifting along the sods and came to a little creek mouth I could just push the anchor button and it held us there while we worked the creek mouth. It is a really cool feature.
