I bought my first real boat in 2013, a tracker 175 TXW. It came with a45 LB Edge trolling motor. I was fishing one day in the Governors cove at PK and the wind was blowing me into the bank. I cranked up the trolling motor on max and the wind blew me into the shallows and shattered the prop. Gee it was fun to take my big aluminum paddle ( thank God I had it) and pole that boat off the bank into deep enough water to use my 60 HP motor as those big 3 foot rollers bashed into me.
Now I have an 80 LB Terrova and no longer have that problem. Plus, I always carry a spare prop. In Texas wind you will sure need to have an upgraded trolling motor or you'll find yourself on the bank.
