Trolling motor size on a Redfisher 16?

Recommended Posts

Edited:

I'm about to buy a 24v GPS/Remote trolling motor for my boat.  Which shaft length would be best - 48" or 54"?  What length are other Redfisher 16 owners using?  Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks,
Gary

54" 24v ulterra. Works great length is great especially if you fish where you get boat wakes. 

Thanks for your advice RedReaper.  It can get bumpy with boat wakes where I fish.  I went ahead and ordered the 54" to be safe.

I’ve got the 54” shaft on my i pilot. Like others said, it comes in handy when you’re bouncing up and down in an inlet etc. 24v should be plenty. I recently put one in my 16ft Bayfisher.  I put the spot lock on in heavy current at Sebastian Inlet. It worked great. I have my batteries mounted in the center console under the steering column
