Just bought a used Prermier 235 tritoon. Set up for play and fishing... got to keep wife and kids happy. Sold my bass boat, so this is going to have to do most everything.

I primarily crappie fish and blue cat fish. Trolling motor mainly for the crappie on brush piles. Planning to put a trolling motor on the front. It has the wiring and split front gate, and I will mount it on a quick release plate. Want to make sure it has "spot lock" or "anchor", and hand held remote. Also, I have a 9" Lowrance Elite Ti that will be the primary unit on the dash. Not sure if I will add a front mounted unit or not. I am estimating 3500 lbs full load tops.

First - am I on the right path thinking I need at least: 24 or 36 volt, 80 - 112 ft lbs. 60" shaft.

I know that asking about which motor is about like asking which brand of beer or pick up trucks... most everyone likes what they have... but please let me know what you think and WHY.

Thanks in advance everyone!

Stay safe.


2014 Premier Alante 235 RF tritoon. Momma's boat. But I get to fish on her.

A country boy will survive... but those who cross him?

Cedar Creek personal best:
Blue Cat 31.55 lbs
Hybrid 6.2 lbs
Crappie 2.1 lbs

Tough mission.
Toons are high profile and low weight. Think of a empty chip bag on the water.
A ten mph wind pretty well takes out your electric

So a 24V 60” shaft is gonna give you about all you can use.
