Hi Italo I cant afford a kicker would you recommend a drift sock or a trolling plate What would you do

Hi Darren….Not sure if you need a kicker-motor for trolling. I troll for walleye, salmon, rainbow & lake trout with an outboard as big as a 200 Yamaha 4-stroke, and have no problem catching fish. If I need to slow-down my trolling speed I just shift from forward to neutral every so often and it works fine. I don’t know how big of an outboard you have. A drift sock can work well for slowing your drift down and also for slowing your troll, but you may have to use a couple of them….God bless you, Italo
