Had the Ultrex installed last week and a Pueblo 20" smallie was my first fish today. Caught smallies, walleye and spots-fish have definitely moved shallow and way more aggressive than just a week ago. Water temp still 48-49, cloudy on the upper end and very clear lower. Lot more boats on the lake now.

Got an Ulterra a couple of weeks ago not knowing its electric steer so back it went and I paid up for the Ultrex and power assist cable steer. Worth the extra money.

Its really just a matter of personal preference. I bass fish and make alot of small adjustments in steering and the Ultrex is cable steer and more responsive. Somebody on here can explain it better than I have.

If you fish walleye and more open water the Ulterra would be all you need.

Didn't take any. Usually don't. I've got the memories stored in my head. :)

The Ultrexx is legit. When I had a terrova I always used the hand remote control. With the cable steer I never use a remote, so easy to fish and control the boat with the foot pedal.

Glad to hear you like the Ultrex! Mine is being installed right now at BPS. My 80 lb Terrova was just not powerful enough to control my Lund. The thing is like a fricken wind sock! My old knees should also benefit from the easier deployment?

Kirby - glad you scored a new trolling motor. You'll be really singing it's praises in a month.

Neal - your problem is you need to downsize to a 17 foot Lund like mine if you want to use the 80# Terrova! I'll trade you boats straight up. LOL!

We are truly living in a great time for sportfishing. All the electronics imaginable, maps, CPW gill net surveys online, satellite images. I'm glad it all came together as I am about to retire and not twenty years from now! LOL!
