I was a bit disappointed that my friend canceled on me to fish Deep Creek today. I thought of going solo but when I woke up I just didn't have it in me to go. I stayed home instead surfing the
net and found this:
I've been looking to buy a trolling motor ever since my first outing at Barrett. A trolling motor is almost a must fishing there or any Socal Lake for that matter. Of course you can get anyway without one up its so much more convenient than using the anchor or drifting with the wind or current. I noticed Cabelas had Minn Kota Endura 34 on sale so I decided to pick one up. Minn Kotas were recommended to me by Ed; he used a 36 for a long time until it died out on him.
I can't wait to try it out although it is unlikely I'll be fishing Barrett with it anytime soon. Well at least I will have it for next season. I will be using it in Newport Bay even though it is not recommended for salt water use. Ed had used his there maybe that is why his died. Nevertheless I don't care after all its only $100. Why I never bought one years ago is beyond me.
