Starcraft or Alumacraft? in This Old Boat Posted April 11, 2017 Yes, My Verado will troll at 1.4 to 1.6 mph.... but I prefer to use the 9.9 pro kicker because I figured it out that I only burn a gallon or less an hour when trolling. When the lake is rough I have to use the Verado because it is a pain in the butt to steer the boat in 3 to 4 foot waves. The Verado prop is deeper and easier when it is rough out. I love my boat. Hitting the lake on Thursday to bust some browns and lakers in the shallows. Bite is on!
