Elite 7ti Trolling motor Interference Help

I've had the same set-up for a year and a half with no issues....last 2-3 trips out I am getting these bars when I hit my trolling motor. Sometimes the lines are not as dark, and sometimes it doesn't happen....any ideas, help would be appreciated.

I just started pouring myself. As stated it's very addicting....especially once you start catching fish on your homemade plastics. Lurecraft has the best variety I've found so far. Check out YouTube for endless videos on the basics.
