Options to troll down my "big motor"

4 posts in this topic

After watching hundreds of boats doing the traditional Lindy rigs with only marginal success on Mille Lacs, we tried trolling cranks in shallow water and picked up 7 fish in about 2 hrs. Only problem was my 115 will not troll below 2.8mph. I tried dragging a driftsock which slowed the speed but made steering difficult. I would consider a kicker but would rather not spend the money and add the extra weight if I don't have to, as I only occasionally troll. ANY IDEAS??

There is a perfect (and I mean perfect) solution for you and it will only cost you $40 (the price of another drift sock). It's called the lindy twin bag trolling system, 2 socks under the boat, you can read about it and see pictures on their HSOforum. Let me know if you can't find it.

I found the "Tamer Trolling System" at the Lindy site using two socks evenly spaced under the bow....looks great! Should help stabilize steering in the wind also....thanks for the tip!

    • Lol at 3 I think I got a little time
    •   Please try and get her to know the difference as soon as you can!  Just saying.
    • You cant be serious, can you?  I think you got that backwards Dave, much like waiting until you become diagnosed  before you open your eyes to bad habits.   Hindsight is always 20/20, guys like you are the reason i take the measures i do now. Im not ripping on you for not knowing because its easy to become unaware of the damage your actually doing to yourself. Learning from others mishaps sticks a lot more than reading about some new trend.
    • Unfortunate your taxidermist could not do all three in a  nice natural  of setting because my guess is it was a female and her two kits. That's just judging from the pictures of course. Would have been a nice family photo, so to speak.
    • Thanks Big Dave. I looked through this stuff and really think a turkey hunt would be something different.  That Mexican bird would be a cool deal.   We will see, I have time!
    •       Because $$$$$$$$$....   You know, free speech and all that..
    • Why not get rid of the cozy relationship that the hospitals,insurance companies, medical device and drug suppliers have and open the market up to competition.    Prime example. You have sleep apnea. Go to the clinic and get a mandated sleep study in their room which costs about $4k for the night.  In an open market private companies could do this for a fraction of the price.   Once you test positive they give you a prescription to buy a machine at their facility and the cost ranges from $1600 to $3600.   You can buy the exact product online for $400-700. But the clinics and doctors don't want you buying there for obvious reasons.    Just one example buy this is what I would like to see changed.  
    • The Rum River is fun anywhere from St. Francis to Anoka. Probably fun north of there to, but I've never done it. It's been quite a few years since I've been on it, but was all no-wake and assume it still is so you don't have to worry much about big boats. 
    •     Why not pass a law that says politicians can't rake in more than 10 percent of the campaign costs of their highest third party competitor?....       wording
