Picking a Jon Boat Trolling Motor
- Because jon boats are so light, they don't need overly powerful motors
- 45 to 55 lbs is usually plenty of power
- Consider how many people will be fishing when considering thrust
Jon Boat Thrust Selection
Please remember that boat weight is the most important criteria to use when selecting an appropriate motor size. Boat length is provided as a helpful guideline but should not be used as a primary determinant of motor size. If you're unsure how much your boat weighs, you can look it up in the NADA boat directory. Learn more in our detailed Thrust Guide.
