Trolling Motors

Boat Trolling Motors

In the ongoing battle of man versus fish, Wholesale Marine stocks a selection of boat trolling motors to give fishermen the decided advantage. In fact we carry everything boaters require to run their craft and to ensure it’s worry-free operation. We know that key to landing that great catch is to be in sync with your boat as it hovers directly above an unsuspecting school of stripers. Up your game with the right boat trolling motor selection from Wholesale Marine. 

Trolling motors are battery operated for whisper quiet operation. It is important, when making your choice, to pick a trolling motor that has sufficient thrust to literally propel your boat and its contents where you want it to go. Additional factors in making your selection include possible high winds and rough water conditions. The standard rule when making a trolling motor purchase is to buy the biggest motor you can afford. Electric trolling motors are available in 12-volt, 24-volt, and 36-volt models. Along with the motor, boaters will make an additional purchase of a corresponding battery. That is, one battery for a 12-volt motor, two for a 24-volt motor, and three, 12-volt batteries to power a 36-volt motor.

Tips to Make the Right Boat Trolling Motor Selection

Now there are two more considerations. Do you need a bow or transom-mount motor? For the bow motor the boat must have a flat bottom fishing platform. MinnKota’s Edge Bow Mount Motor is great for freshwater fishermen and is built from marine-grade aluminum for years of reliable use. Otherwise, opt for the transom, which clamps to the stern and is compatible with any style boat. For optimal thrust, consider MotorGuide’s Bulldog Transom Mount Foot Controlled Trolling Motor. Lastly, do you want to look at hand or foot controlled boat trolling motors? Just remember that a foot-controlled model leaves a fisherman hands free to cast with ease.
