    Those were some excellent pointers Rex, if I set my phone down anywhere anytime not right under my nose its lost. Realize its riding on my toolbox in the back of the truck running down the highway.

    Whenever backing my boat, I always drop my tailgate. It makes things a lot easier.
    When I get home from fishing, I trim the motor down and take the leaf blower and blow the left over water out of the lower unit.
    You would be surprised how much is in there. I also do it during the winter.

    You should remove your trolling motor prop and inspect for fishing line. Unfortunately there are many snags and lines tangled down in the water. Fishing line can work its way into the seal and bearing if not removed. I recommend doing this when your boat is out of the water but if you
    have to inspect and remove fishing line while your fishing or your boat is in the water be careful not to drop the nut and pin that holds the
    prop in place. You should have a spare in your boat just in case.
