Well although I did go fishing yesterday, when I should have been helping the church with the "Live Nativity" sets, using the excuse of terrible arthritis, hands and elbows, it seems it does not hurt as much when fishing.   I dont know what is going to happen when I get that big lunker on, and cant control it, but yesterday, I did not have to worry about it.  (smile)  I called an old railroad buddy of mine, who we worked together seems years ago, and we are talking back in the 90s when I had a "reel job".   It was a beautiful day, very little wind, so I left the cove and headed west.   Hit a few points with the rigs, and got between the islands, where there is a big accumulation of "birds", and some fish but only one taker.   I did learn something, so looking for some information about trolling motors, and "splashing", with the flapper, made some time back, and used some with some success in dead sticking.   When I was idling, stopped to bring in the rigs, there is a huge ball of either fish or bait, and I feel the flapper can do the same, so going to try that method.  Question is since the last trolling motor I used last, tore up with the heavy "flapper",  I want a good, reliable trolling motor to try the flapping, and different methods of fishing, this coming winter.   I do think the dead sticking, and flapping might help, could'nt hurt for sure, and its my next test.   I did manage to bring in a nice fat, 20 inch fish yesterday, but this would not make a good day with customers.   It was released unharmed, and I cant wait to catch it again.  I ran over a good part of the lake, looking around, but all in all, fishing was fun, but catching was pretty slim. It was good to get out on the lake after all the rains.   Anyway any suggestions on good reliable trolling motors?

Thanks for so many replys.  I have decided on the fact, that you probably know less about the subjects as I, so I am going with my first guess.. I have thusfar, decided on the ......... which has produced so many fish on my last trip, I have decided to use half the power, to help me get finished quicker cleaning fish, and more time talking with my customers, which actually they like better than the trip itself.   Since it has been a banner year, and I am actually over booked, I have decided on simply getting some worms, save gas, and fish in my slip, and talk crap.  Which in 22 years, I have accelerated at, the later in the evening it happens to bring better results.... but I fail to share, as this year, any good story, is a wall mounter!   I know there are some good fish being caught now and then, but with my new method,which I do not plan to share, other than that mentioned above, I will continue to look good, with no sun exposure at all...and pray for this year to be over, and everyone to mend their wounds of all the rain, and damage, and "better luck next year".   God willing, maybe then there will be some positive, fishing reports, on what I consider the best lake any where, this year, in the slips...but next year is a different story.   Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
