fishing without a trolling motor
long story short. my dad is coming down from the myrtle beach area to fish in and around ft. pierce in mid march. 90% of his fishing consists of offshore up in sc. the trolling motor he had/has is a very old minn kota that finally kicked the bucket and they no longer make parts for it. he isn't going to cough up 1-2K on a new TM just for this trip. we usually do a mixed bag of fishing, offshore and backcountry/inshore stuff.
we have fished that area before but the trolling motor worked at that time. honestly, i have never fished without a TM and i’m scratching my head on how to fish inshore/backcountry (docks/shorelines) without it. fishing the flats would be near impossible (no platform or pushpole). the last thing i want to do is fire the motor up every 30 seconds. the only other option would be to drift fish. i'm somewhat spoiled since i fish mainly out of kayak or off my sup so i can get in/out any type of water. any suggestions?
he has a century center console, 19-22', drafts about 12"ish, running a 115 yahmaha.
