Do THIS With Your Motor While Fishing [VIDEO]
When fishing a flat or shoreline, you will most likely find yourself in either of these two scenarios.
The first is drift fishing without a trolling motor.
The second is using the trolling motor to move around a flat or shoreline.
This is often overlooked and something to always keep in mind when you are drifting or trolling out on the water.
If you are drifting, your motor is actually very important to control your drift and should be used to your full advantage.
It can even be used as a rudder.
What you want to do is angle your motor to a point where you get a nice drift.
You almost never want to angle the motor up and out of the water.
To make your motor a rudder, put it down further in the water and with a simple turn of the steering wheel, you are in control of your own drift.
You will be able to cover a lot more water with more efficiency.
On the other hand, when you are fishing using a trolling motor, you need to use your motor as a rudder but you have a couple of things to take into account.
If you are fishing up in the shallows, you need to make sure your motor is not hitting the bottom.
But, you also do not want your motor to be all the way up because then your boat is going to fishtail.
The ideal position of your motor in this situation is not totally down but slightly lower than the hull of your boat.
If you happen to get too shallow, the motor will stop you before the hull of the boat is on ground.
Next time you are out on the water, keep these tips in mind to ensure you are taking the best possible steps to ensure a quality drift along a flat or around a point.
Motor placement while fishing is often overlooked so do not make the same mistakes!
