Pro Tip of the Week: Utilize the ‘spot lock’ feature

By Jason Durham

Many people utilize the “spot lock” or “anchor mode” feature on their trolling motors simply to stay in position for casting towards a school of fish.

It’s not a bad way to utilize the amazing technology, but there are other ways to take advantage of the feature.

Don’t overlook its effectiveness for catching fish vertically, even in shallow water.

The longer you keep your boat positioned in an area, the more likely fish are to utilize your boat as a structure. Fish may relate to your boat, if it is parked there for a bit!

That’s something many anglers don’t even realize. Give it a try next time.
