I'll admit , It's a stupid question

4 posts in this topic

I've been told by a hunting buddy that the sign for "non-motorized" areas refers to gasoline engines. He said that you can use an electric "trolling" motor. Anyone else know this as fact. I say non motorized means no motors Electric or otherwise. Any info would be appreciated.

non-motorized meens non-motorized.

On some lakes you are allowed a 30lb thrust trolling motor. I believe these are typically identified as some sort of game lake or waterfowl refuge-y sort of thing.

you cannot use an electric trolling motor on WMAs. unfortunately. If you dont have a push pole...get one...I got my first last year and they work great...you wouldn't believe how much easier it is to get around in the wind than rowing. With the low water this year...its' going to be worth it's weight in gold.

Not a stupid question Gator, but one you could easily have answered yourself by simply reading the regulations. With the seasons approaching it is time to GET and then READ the regulations.

Remember: a bunch of bureaucrats went to a lot of effort to make them for you!!! grin.gif

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
