Keep Trolling Motor up as far as Posible

I did some Bass fishing last Spring and noticed a lot of fish with nasty slashes from trolling motor props. These days they make trolling motors so big it has a tendency to keep them lower than needed. Bass don’t spook real easy and they will just sit there as boats go over them. So keep the motor as high as possible so Bass don’t get killed or injured.
