Fished Guntersville today and managed 29 crappie, but it wasn't easy. After about 2 casts the part that attaches the cable and foot pedal on my trolling motor broke again. It is an older type 12/24 Motor Guide 41# Brute. This "armature" has broken 2 times before and it has been hard to find another one in the past, so I am thinking of buying another foot controlled trolling motor. I ended up having to anchor down and I am pretty sure I ran off some of the bigger fish in the process.

Anyone have an opinion on new Motor Guide or Minn Kota or other brands? I need to do something soon as I don't think I can stand to have to use my anchor like I did today many more times!

Thanks for your help,

Kerry
