Tollling motor runs extremely slow....

5 posts in this topic

The battery appears to be fine.

What would cause the motor to be really slow? Just wore out?

Take the prop off and check for line wrapped around the propeller shaft. My trolling motor was tripping my breaker all the time on a short trip last week. Got home and actually had to use a rubber mallet to remove the prop, there was a boatload of superbraid and weeds wrapped up in there.

The weeds might be it....

It was working fine until my nephew borrowed the boat to fish bass in the weeds.

I am having the same issue. I just bought the boat in March and 1st time I brought it out I thought it would go over 2 mph. Now, top speed is 1.3 - 1.5 mph. Sunday I had it and went into the weeds and it just stopped. It's a 24 volt. I seen that the breaker was tripped on one of the batteries and flipped it and it started working. The other battery was fine.

Question, shouldn't it still work with one battery if that is the case? It's almost like it's just running on one or something.

    • I would say your results speak for themselves, we often do things that don't make sense or trade short term gain for long term trouble. Nature does things for a reason that we often don't understand, why try to fix what isn't broken?
    • Two charter boats. (11 people) Fishing was very slow last Sunday afternoon (8), but we did really well on Monday morning (43). Due to bad luck drawing cards, neither Mrs Duff or I touched a rod on Sunday. She went 5 for 5 on Monday. That's fishing for ya though. And true fishermen understand that.   Some real nice fish this year, good luck to those that make it out there.      
    • And no, it does not have some sort of virus. They are calling it a phishing site and it is not. It competes with Google adsense so it make sense for Google to be sloppy in their algorithm.
    • Great storytelling with pictures on a portion of your life experiences in the  great outdoors.  Thanks for sharing Len.  
    • Len - This was a very nice article.  I enjoyed your writing style.  Take care.
    • I am going to pick up a box to pattern against what I am shooting now. Here is my question. They are available in both 1 3/4 oz. shot and 1 7/8 oz. shot in 12 gauge. In a 3" 12 gauge #5 shot shell, that comes out to a 21 pellet difference. The velocity for 1 3/4 is 1200 fps, for 1 7/8 is 1080. At 20 yards it would make very little difference, but say at 45 yards would you rather have the extra 21 pellets or the added velocity? I suppose the answer is to buy both and pattern them, but I am curious as to the thoughts of the folks on this board. Thanks
    • I was looking to get an otter XT pro cabin this winter, I was wondering of anyone on here has an otter in the pro platform and how they like the extra insulated walls. Does it seem bulky? Too warm on above 0 days? I wouldn't mind just the normal cabin but they only offer it with a bench it seems but having the extra insulation may be nice to have for those cold days here and there. 
    • Thank You for the very interesting and enjoyable morning read
