Trolling motor mount

7 posts in this topic

I bought a 79' lund last year which has the rounded aluminum front and have seen people take these out to put a flat piece of plywood up there to mount a front trolling motor. Does anyone know who i could contact to do this kind of work. Ive heard of a guy in St. Peter if anyone knows his name. Thanks

Wait a few days & I will post a picture. This past weekend I worked on a bracket for my 14' lund to mount my transom trolling motor up front, It turned out nice and was a piece of cake to make, (If you know someone with a wire feed welder).

Pretty simple even without a welder. Take some lumber, 2X2 or 2X4, and bolt in to the boat horizontal with a couple of bolts, cutting a piece of 3/4 plywood to fit into the boats front and screwing the plywood to the lumber with screws. On mine, I needed to use two pieces of plywood to get that 1.5" to get the trolling motor over of edge of the gunnel. This was for a bow mount on a 14 ft lund....the concept is pretty universal and very easy though.

I dont have photos, but your more than welcome to swing by my house sometime and take a look-Cougar Estates, Mankato.

Is this Allan A?

Redrocket, here's some pictures of the bracket I made. I wanted a bow mount troller without the loss of space a bow mount creates. As you can see, I don't have a lot of room up there anyway.

In the last picture you can barly see the plug in in the front of the seat. I think It will wrok pretty well.

      Heck, everything darn near locked up today. This morning Cass was all locked up besides some water out just south of Cedar Island. Pike was frozen all the way across. I cruised to Naytahwaush to visit my mother today and everything was locked up besides Lake LaSalle , thich is 200+ feet deep.

      To be honest, a willingness to move and "hole-hop" is a great way to find biting fish.    Anothet shout-out to MN Lake Finder.
