Trolling With Solar Power

Fishing Enthusiasts, Listen Up. Power Your Trolling Motor With Solar Power

To the many of you who are thinking of electric trolling motors or even have one already.  It’s really a pain in the neck to take out your battery every Sunday evening to bring it to the shop for charging. There is an easy solution.

  • One Solar module mounted permanently to your boat.
  • One MPPT Charge controller.
  • A bit of wiring and an automotive fuse.

You are off to longer fishing hours, more fish and no worries battery charging.  In good sunshine conditions using a 300 W panel you can run your 30 lb trolling motor directly of solar power without depleting your battery. You may be surprised that you probably have to spend less than $ 400 to make you solar mobile. 

Please share this post with all of your fishing buddies.

Have a sunny day,
