trolling in This Old Boat Posted August 27, 2007 A little late, but have you considered the cheap approach, the trolling bucket?? Made some for my boat, then the motor died before I could try them out. My boat trolls at 2.7+ on GPS just in gear, so I thought I'd try these babies. Hopefully I can report on them soon. The pics you see are from a guy in Maine from myfishfinder.com who uses them for just your reason. Can keep his RPM's up w/o having to use a kicker. Good luck.
