There are always surprises at the annual ICAST Show in Orlando, but this year’s trade show has a more tricks up its sleeve in the world of trolling motors.

And not necessarily from traditional makers of on-the-water electric propulsion.

Fishing electronics makers Lowrance and Garmin are expected to unveil trolling motors this week at the world’s biggest fishing gear show, both companies releasing online sneak peeks of their new products.

Lowrance has teased its new Ghost trolling motor as the “quietest trolling motor on the market.”


In a YouTube video published on July 2, Lowrance said:


”The fish will never hear you coming with the new Ghost Trolling Motor by Lowrance. From deploying the trolling motor to closing in on fish, our unique Ghost design makes it the quietest trolling motor on the market. The key to its silent operation is a specially developed brushless motor that's 30 percent quieter than today's top-selling trolling motor – all without emitting electromagnetic interference, which keeps your sonar view clear from onscreen clutter.”

Garmin, whose new Force trolling motor line has been rumored since late spring, published its own video on YouTube on Monday, July 8, with the following info:

”Fish with force using the 57” Force™ trolling motor. It’s the most powerful, most efficient trolling motor available yet still extremely quiet. Learn more here. Includes the power you need to counter winds and currents with the efficiency to fish all day. Wireless chartplotter integration and built-in autopilot get you to fish, along with anchor lock to stay on them. Wireless foot pedal provides instant control and responsiveness; feels and steers like a cable-steered pedal. Includes integrated CHIRP traditional and Ultra High-Definition ClearVü and SideVü scanning sonars with imperceptible sonar noise interference. Floating remote control gives you full control of the trolling motor and simple point-and-go gesture steering.”
