|Now this scares me a bit. Of course the tug is sealed tight but is liable to become one big bobber if a hawg catches the lure!|
|Mike bought a Motor Upgrade Kit but didn't use the smaller propeller. Instead, he kept the 4 blade prop and added a cooling fan powered by the BEC on the speed control. It will overheat but he promised to be careful... The extra power was certainly necessary.|
|"While visiting my folks last summer, my brothers and I got bored catching lunker bass the traditional way. I decided to rig the tug for fishing. I had a hard point on the stern of the tug where I tied a 4 foot nylon leader. On the other end of the leader I had a 3" or larger bobber. From the bobber I had a 2-3 foot fishing line to a Rapala crank bait lure."|

how many fish we caught. The biggest was a 20" Large Mouth Bass.
Maybe with the newly installed power up-grade, I'll try Muskee this
Unlike me, he has a digital radio where he can set the throttle limit to 25% which allows him to cruise at normal hull-speed with the powerful setup, without overheating the motor. He also uses the extra power to recover his ODOM sailboat.
