That is so awesome. I have an old trolling motor at the house. I am going to try it this weekend. How long of a paddle did you use or recommend?
i have not tried this yet just in the thinking stage.but it seems to be the simplest way to do it.i would say the paddle would need to be at least 12 " below the water line .if u make it a little longer and use the tilt on the bracket u should be able to find the right lenght for ur fishin style
let me know how it works for u
