I fish from a 14' Jon boat. Besides my outboard I am currently using a transom mounted electric. Back in my gear fishing/bass boat days I would set the motor on low cruise along and cast to likly looking spots until I found fish. This doesn't seem to work too well with the fly rod. I have been using the electric to go between spots and anchor. Part of the problem is the transom mounted motor doesnt control the boat as well as a bow mount. Before I invest in a bow mount I was just courious how everybody else manages. Anchoring seems to work well for panfish but i would like to be able to cover more ground when targeting bass.
