    Default small motor

    hey pfc dave
    was wondering which lakes you were talking about? if in anchorage they have a no gas motor on the lakes. myself i picked up a trolling motor to use and 2 deep cycle batteries. works well on the 11' smokercraft and is nice and quit. both batteries will last all weekend trollong for large trout and pike, and i can hit any of the lakes i goto. works well on sand lake because i can slip up on pike in the lillies and they do not shoot out of there. on low i can troll worms or spinners and pick up trout and char. was just a suggestion did not know if you thought of going that route. jeff

    Default I think

    the 30lb thrust model would be fine for trolling speeds. Just make sure your batteries are good and charged before you go, and take your oars.. Never forget the oars.. Hmmm.. yes experience says never forget the oars.. Have fun on the water..
