Does more thrust mean more speed? How fast can a trolling motor go?
I think that all trolling motors are basically limited to 5 mph regardless of how much thrust they have.
@BabyShark82, @WesternTroutBum is correct, all trolling motors have a top speed of around 5mph. think of thrust like torque. It is the power generated, not the speed.
All trolling motors top out around 4-5 mph as long as they are paired correctly for the boat. The biggest thing to consider is the amount of draw the motor is going to pull if it is under powered. It will be working at its max to move a boat that is too large. This will draw down your batteries and limit your use.
