The CARF #icatchsmallfishtour2018 just received a power boost. A boost in the form of an electric trolling motor for my Flycraft Stealth. Little fish beware, I am now able to find you faster!
Minn Kota C2 45
The maiden voyage for the new trolling motor was a local lake. The sun was shining, and I was armed with a 7 and 10 wt rod, a Ziplock bag full of flies, a fully charge marine battery and a new trolling motor. The table was set for me to dominate, and dominate I did. These small fish never had a chance.

The trolling motor worked great, and I was able to get out to the spots I know that hold small fish so much faster than before. They never saw me coming. I was tossing a small black woolly bugger-esk fly with a conehead, and I SLAYED. I even slayed while LIVE on Instagram. If you don’t follow me, you should. There will be more live fishing outings in the future.
5 lbs of crappie
There was a point in time where I was hooking up with a crappie almost every cast. I must have caught like 347.5 crappie of all different sizes. If I had a bucket, I might have taken a few home for some table fare. They were much bigger than the 5lb crappie I am holding in the picture above, but I decided that I’d let them see another day. I have their address, so, I’ll be revisiting them in the future.
The CARF Fish Slaying Water Craft
The trolling motor works great, and is more than capable to scoot the Flycraft around the lake. Looking forward to getting it out on a river to test it’s ability against some current.
