Whether you’re sneaking around shallow flats or anchoring on an offshore reef, saltwater trolling motors can get you where you need. Unlike their gas-powered counterparts, trolling motors run off of batteries. Advances in technology have made these motors easy to operate and efficient, and what they lack in power, they make up for in maneuverability and stealth.
Most models come paired with wireless remotes so anglers can control them from anywhere on the boat. Throw in GPS features to keep you in place and it’s obvious why most inshore boats are adding trolling motors. Here are my top choices for the best saltwater trolling motors if you want to take your fishing to the next level.
