Small motor, big headaches

If you’ve never had this happen to you, consider yourself a lucky fisherman. But when the little rope with the plastic handle that allows you to put your trolling motor into the water, and subsequently lift it back out, breaks during one of these functions, it can be one of the most complicated things to fix on the water.

Seriously, a 20-cent piece of rope and 75-five cent plastic handle are all that stands in the way of complete heartache if either one of them break. You wouldn’t think this is such a big deal, until it happens to you just once — especially when the trolling motor is down and you can’t get it back up in the boat to start your big motor. It’s probably the one thing that is overlooked the most when it comes to checking things over and making sure nothing is broken.
