There is a lot of debate surrounding electric trolling motors, and the reason behind this is that there are two kinds that you can look into. We are of the opinion that bow trolling motors are without a shadow of a doubt the best of the best because of the fact that they are much more convenient. Bow motors go on the bow of the ship, obviously. If you are not familiar with maritime jargon then the bow of the ship is basically the front, which means that a bow trolling motor is essentially going to be at the front of the ship as well.
There are a number of benefits associated with this sort of thing. For starters, when you have a motor at the front of your ship you are going to be able to better determine where the good catches are and plan accordingly. Not to mention the fact that this is something that can really help you a lot in terms of the kind of benefits it can provide to your overall catch quantities. If you see fish in a certain direction, you can point your boat in that direction and rest assured that no matter what happens you would be able to make the most of your boat all in all.
The chances of damage occurring will be much lower as well since you would be able to avoid your motor hitting anything and steer it away. This is more difficult for motors that are at the back, and your maneuvering might actually result in a fair amount of damage if you are not extremely careful. All in all, this is the better option for you in a lot of ways.
