When you tournament fish, you feel like you’re always racing against the clock, and that teaches you to quickly calculate the precise time it takes to do things like travel from one dock or piece of cover to another. My instant calculations to calibrate a quick “between” strategy would go something like this: It’s going to take me 10 seconds to put the rod down and pick up another, 1 minute by trolling motor to get to the next dock on full speed, or I could choose to take 30 seconds to get there by idling with the big motor and not fishing at all. But don’t forget, you have to sit down and start the motor, which takes a few seconds, then an equal amount of seconds to shut it down and get back to the front of the boat. Then factor in the unattractive noise that the idling makes, the excessive buzz the trolling motor makes on high speed, and the fact that you might get hung on the something random while casting and waste more time. All in all, you could actually conclude that you’re doing more damage to the productivity of the area by going fast than all that exhausting behavior is worth.
