Foot Control Trolling Motor
The foot control trolling motor is an excellent option for people who need a trolling motor that can allow them to exercise while navigating their kayak or smaller boats across rivers or lakes. These trolling motors have a similar operating process to other trolling motors. So you will not need extra training or experience to use them.
However, there are freshwater trolling motors mainly for those types of water bodies and saltwater trolling motors for deeper lakes or rivers with salt water. It is essential to identify which bow mount trolling motor is categorized as freshwater tolling motors or for salt water.
This information is essential because it helps you understand the care tips and how to make your trolling motor last longer. While the main idea when buying a foot pedal trolling motor is to get a durable and functional product, the back freshwater trolling motors are excellent for fishing in small lakes or rivers. Comparing prices, you may find that the back saltwater trolling motors are more expensive, but the difference may be insignificant.

How do Trolling Motor Pedals Work?
Using a trolling motor with a foot control system is relatively easy, and it is an amazing way to exercise while navigating your small boat or kayak. While navigation is easy because you can steer the propeller and use a GPS to find your way around, new users must practice before heading out on their own.
Also, you can find essential information about using the trolling motor with foot control in the product’s buying guide. So, you put pressure on the foot pedal to move the kayak or boat. Turning the trolling motor on moves the boat forward, and you can steer right by pressing the pedal forward and keeping your heels up. To steer left, press the pedal with your heels while your toes face downwards. For easy control, you can glance at the trolling motor to see which direction it moves when you push the pedal with your toes or heels. And while the trolling motor works, it moves straight in a linear direction except if you want to steer it left or right.
Using a trolling motor with foot control does not mean the system cannot have a battery. The batteries essentially act like a secondary power source. So, if you ever get tired of using the pedal, you should activate your battery to propel the motor. It would help if you also understood that the wind and motor cable could influence your navigating experience, so ensure you are using a high-quality motor brand that won’t be affected by the strong wind when you operate the bow mount motor.
What Size of Trolling Motor is Best?
You need the best trolling motor to have an excellent experience, so always look for favorable features when buying. Choosing the correct motor for your use is easier when you know the thrust capacity per lbs. On average, the trolling motor brand you choose should have a minimum thrust of 2 lbs for every 1000lbs, giving your boat more propelling force. You can find that information in the motor section or send the brand a message about their products.
Additional Trolling Motor Features
Other features to look for including the mount type, which can be bow mount or transom mounts, wireless remote, shallow water anchors, and a directional indicator, quick release bracket, among other essential features.
