The open water trials of our front mounted trolling motor have begun. I had a difficult time with the tracking of the boat when we switched the trolling motor to the bow (which is a necessity for me to see the devious grasses that continually seek to wrap around the prop.) But, genius Drew thought of placing a 60 pound sand bag, next to the battery, in the stern of the boat. It worked like a charm! Next...figuring out where to put the tripod for photography from the boat...That'll happen this weekend.
