Got a 14' canoe with a 40lb trolling motor for Father's Day this year. Pretty sweet and has been fun so far.... Anyone have any tips for setup or equipment to ease my fishing trips? Thanks....

Mounted a 6 place rod holder behind my forward seat.... Haven't broken a pole yet!

Pool noodles mounted on the cross supports keep the hooks out from underfoot.

WHen Running alone I put the marine battery in the front and run cheap jumper cables back to the motor. Helps with weight distribution/handling.

Hauling the marine battery around the launch area is a pain too so I got a pneumatic wheeled dolly for that chore. Also mounted a wooden cross piece across the top to clamp on the engine and clamped some PVC to the sides for the rods. Now I can haul all the stuff in 1 easy trip!
