  I have three sizes
  Posted by: Big_D on Feb-12-12 4:29 PM (EST)

I have three trolling motors. A 40 ft/lb thrust Motorguide, a 46 ft/lb thrust Minkota, and a 55 ft/lb thrust Bass Pro Shops Prowler.

I like the 46 ft/lb thrust the best. The 55 ft/lb thrust motor from Bass Pro Shops isn't near as smooth and the shaft is way too long.

The MotorGuide's transom mount broke. I need to get it repaired, but have had difficulty finding someone who can do it within a 2.5 hour drive.

In general, I'd get a Minnkota Endura as powerful as you can afford, but watch the shaft length.

I'm thinking of tinkering with the BPS Prowler to see whether I can shorten the shaft. The money's already spent and if I bust it irreparably - so what?
