So upon searching at all the listings for used boats that are out there, I want to ask you guys about the trolling systems that are available and what you think is the best option to have. My main use in a boat I wish to have is one I would mainly use for salmon fishing upon where I'd be trolling bait and lures using down riggers.
I wish to have a boat with twin outboard motors and I want to ask about how you guys about what kind of trolling system do you have, such as do you use a Raymarine, Simrad, TR1, or some other means. What are your likes and dislikes about them?
I've been looking at Parker boats and the reviews I've been reading about them have all been good, but there are very few of them here in Alaska. Alot of them are on the east coast for they are made in North Carolina. Alot of the ones I've seen listed for sale are do not have kicker motors attached to them whether they have twin or single motor attached, and I wondering if this kind of setup would work up here in the Alaska waters for salmon trolling.
I don't want this thread to get into a discussion about which boat is better than the other or how aluminum boats are better than fiberglass etc etc. I wanna know about te different types of trolling systems that are available you guys may have and what your feelings are about them. Thanks
