Boat Trolling Motors
Boat trolling motors are smaller than most standard boat motors and are used for propelling fishing boats in shallow water at much slower speeds. They are a popular choice for fishermen no matter what your skill level, as they help you maneuver in areas not normally accessible under normal engine power. When you are considering buying a trolling motor, know that Wholesale Marine carries a wide selection of trolling motors and parts from the top brands including Minn Kota, Lowrance, T-H Marine, Humminbird, and more.
When shopping for a trolling motor, you will want to take into consideration the size of your boat and the typical water and weather conditions you fish in. That’s because you’ll want to ensure that you have enough thrust to propel your boat through the water. Trolling motors are available in 12, 24, and 36-volt models, and it is often a good idea to buy the biggest motor you can afford to take on whatever weather conditions arise when you are out fishing.
